#32 today, flipsideroom up and running

Firstly I have finally given into the requests and started the "flipsideroom" which is the bsides/other sides of all the singles featured here. This was something people kept asking me from day one and now...well I've started, so hope you enjoy that as well. I've only done one but it's a start, going back to "flip over" podcast#1 from way back in November...check it out here ;)

I have also just started another thing centred around music from the Australian Post Punk scene in the early 80's called Impaneema Mon Amour, which if you're interested you can visit here.

Meanwhile back here, today we start with some more Rosehips, followed by the Rainy Day collaboration which from memory was members of the Dream Syndicate and the Rain Parade in a side project, and the single today is a Dylan cover sung by Susanna Hoffs from the Bangles. Followed closely by the BMX Bandits, speaking of Soup Dragons offhsoots, which we weren't !

Next Mr Mark E Smith is back extolling the anti-virtues of a Creep, well before Radiohead that is ( when they announced Damien Leith would be singing Creep on Australian Idol this year I was secretly hoping it was The Fall song..but alas...though never too late Damo ).

Scribble was the 2nd band of Johanna Piggott ( after XL Capris ) and I really enjoyed Silly Girl today for some reason. The Monkees were fun too and The Unstrung Harp were a Melbourne band and this is a great single, and also stylistically worthy of an appearance of the afore mentioned Impaneema Mon Amour.

As always - enjoy ;)

I've been through your whole history, great idea and plenty of good memories there. It was especially good to hear Pel Mel again. I noticed a Moodists track in there, I was wondering if you had their song: "runaway". It was my favourite of all their releases. Keep up the good work.

Thanks for spinning The Waltones. Cherry Red have just issued a CD retrospective of the band called You've Gotta Hand it to 'em.
