Awful. Jerry Lee means quite lot to me. Never mind Elvis, the three kings of rock 'n roll are Chuck berry, Jerry Lee and Gene Vincent.

Two songs by The Fall which showcase the enigma that was Mark E. Smith. The first from 1981 , Lie Dream of a Casino Soul , ostensibly a rant about the Northern Soul scene , but more likely an examination of amphetamine psychosis , along with the immortal line ; 'Got no nerves left Monday morning and I think I’ll cut my dick off.)

The second , only six years later , a cover version of the Northern Soul (Tamla Motown) classic , There’s A Ghost In My House.

Used to care. Times have a’changed.
