Oh dear, works getting in the way again - so this weeks FF may be short on text but hopefully tall on tunes - anyway it gives me a great excuse to post one of the finest pieces of youtubery I've ever found.
'A trip to the lights'- a homemade work of genius that's spliced together from the hits and highlights of Beardfreaks1969's dear old grandad's cine films - retromatic footage of coach outings, Piccadilly trips and vintage tear ups have been reworked into a 3 minute masterpiece soundtracked with Jackie Mitoo's 'Juice Box'.
It's worth noting the volume of frown free faces in the film. I really don't think you'd get that today.
'A trip to the lights'
Plus a double barrel from Mr Mittoo
Get Up and Get It
And a little snifter of something in memory of Pink Floyd's Rick Wright..
