On The Other Hand - Ho-tel Mo-tel Holiday Iiinn

I still have the 12" full 15 minute version of this - and still know ALL the words - it's an absolute classic and check out the moves too. This is a rare recording at some venue called the Soap Factory in 1978. Enjoy - or skip to the next post if you don't like it.

OR - have a recap on LISTEN WITH ROCKMOTHER while you are patiently waiting for the
forthcoming podcast on slitswitch.

Oh yes I remember this one.

I knew a band called 'The Herbs' and they nicked this bassline for their song 'Trumpton Rap'.

I remember my sister playing this about 1 billion times when it came out.

Something very sweet about boasting about your 'colour TV' these days...

Ister - I think it's been nicked for loads of things hasn't it?

Annie - yes - plasma tv with surroundsound wouldn't sound quite right would it? I can't believe I still know all the words to the 12" version. I copied them into the back of my English book in a lesson once - tragic.

Don't you see Webster ers in the words cent er and theat er ?If he celebrity hair style spells leather lether , and feather fether , isn't theredanger that he'll give us a bad spell of weather ?Besides, Webster is a resurrectionist; he does not allow u to restquietly in the mould.He did not know what injury she might have sustained; She might havebeen seriously hurt, hardcorecomics if not actually killed.Uponthe tranquil little islands her life had been eventless, and all thefine possibilities of her nature were like flowers that never bloomed moese tropft.It is the same as in a book where we space gay kontaktanzeigen ibiza orprint in heavy type any word upon which particular stress is laid forthe understanding of the text.
