Paul Heaton mocks David Cameron who claims to be a fan of Hull band Housemartins | Mod Scene Weekly | Scoop.it

 

His attack echoed Paul Weller who savaged Mr Cameron for declaring that “The Eton Rifles” was his favourite song.

The it is about demonstrators from a Right To Work march going through Slough in 1978 breaking off to attack pupils from Eton College’s cadet corp who were jeering at them.

Weller said: “Which part of it doesn’t he (Cameron) get? It wasn’t intended as a f***ing jolly drinking song for the cadet corps.”

Drawn To The Deep Bin: Britpop underdogs Gene announce album reissues - Vanyaland | Mod Scene Weekly | Scoop.it

Over the course of eleven years, Martin Rossiter and his London melody makers released four solid studio albums, as well as three rarities compilations and a live record. And now Christmas has come early for the Gene faithful with this week’s news of long-awaited record reissues.

Ocean Colour Scene – The Marchin’ Already Tour

Ocean Colour Scene – The Marchin’ Already Tour | Mod Scene Weekly | Scoop.it

When Ocean Colour Scene’s Marchin’ Already was released in 1997 – promptly dislodging Oasis’ Be Here Now from the Number One spot – a mysterious package arrived at the band’s door. Inside it was a plaque from Noel Gallagher engraved with the inscription: ‘To the Second Best Band in Britain.’ Far from being insulted, guitarist Steve Cradock took it as a compliment, saying: “It’s an honour to be described as Britain’s second best band – ahead of Oasis but behind the Beatles.”
