Stop, nugget time

 This week on the Sunday Hangover it was news nugget time!


Nugget one:  if you went round a young friend's house and they offered you trouser leg pizza, cabbage salad and vinegar & garlic curry, how would you feel?

Excited, that's how!  You'd be eating Calzone, Coleslaw and Vindaloo of course, only expressed in their original literal names.  Trouser leg being Italian for Calzone (or vice versa), and vindaloo being corrupted Portuguese for vinegar and garlic.  Tasty. 

Nugget two:  a Chinese University is providing parents with accommodation, to stop them sleeping in their kids' dorms to better mollycoddle their precious ones. Hmm.  Simply live in a complete hole like the rest of us at Uni, your parents soon go away.

Nugget Three:  two tourists/idiots/freaks have been arrested in Athens for carrying 6 skulls through customs. The tourists explained they bought them in a souvenir shop.  Makes a change from T-shirts and fridge magnets I suppose.


After nugget time we switched to self indulgence time, with my musical influences of the week.  First, one of the best gigs ever - ever - with Old Crow Medicine Show in the east end, joined on stage by John Paul Jones of Led Zeppelin and Mumford & Sons.  Then Hayseed Dixie in the half moon in Putney.  Then a visit to Jimi Hendrix's flat in Bond Street.  I played something from them all.  Fairly self indulgent, but I don't care.  The tracks were:


Old Crow Medicine Show - Bobcat Tracks

Mumford & sons - The Cave

Led Zeppelin - Communication Breakdown

Hayseed Dixie - Down Down

Jimi Handrix - All Along A Watchtower


Want to see Hayseed Dixie?  They're on in Southend or Islington in the next few weeks:


And the rest:

Jamiroquai - Blue Skies

Holly Valance - Kiss Kiss

Scissor Sisters - Any Which Way

Kylie Minogue - Get Outta My Way

Amy Macdonald - Love Love

Charlatans - Weirdo

Gorillaz - Dirty Harry

Beatles - Day Tripper

Bangles - Manic Monday

Madonna - Vogue

Editors - When Anger Shows

Katy Perry - Teenage Dream
