You've gotta love the ol' shuffle button and it's Tombola way of popping winners into play
The two most recent treats (picked and played back to back) were alt-takes from ever-cherished faves The Beatles and The Damned, who, have more crossover and connection than you may initially think..
The Hard Day's Night sleeve re-jiggery , main songwriters starting out as bass players - Captain even played a Macca style Hofner violin bass in his earliest period, is also a dedicated Veggie and animal rights activist - then there's Help appearing on the B-side of first single New Rose, and the sideswipe at Lennon..Would You Be So Hot (watch for the powerdiddle drum fills at 1:46, the Santana style closing coda and some solid soloing from Cap')
But getting back to the tracks...both are faster, flightier versions of familiar tunes - whipping along with extra fizz, vim and voom!
You can see why, as Stuart Maconie reports in Cider With Roadies, he was stunned into submission and silence by this assault of battering ram riffs and rhythms.
The Damned - Neat Neat Neat (Peel session 30/11/76)
Take 6 of The Word is a bouncier, beatier versh, which to my old lugs sounds ever so slightly sped up. That it's 15 seconds shorter than the official release may mean it has been gear-shifted up a notch...(full breakdown here Fab avids)
The Beatles - The Word
The Damned - Help
