Frontier Editor’s Dance Party – August 4, 2006

Filed under: Uncategorized — Frontier Former Editor @ 6:41 pm

Richard’s words are best deferred to tonight:

“The reason Rory Gallagher is by turns spoken of in terms of hushed reverence or sadly not even known of is because he never glorified drugs; never caused a drive-by shooting; never spawned a clothing fashion any more offensive than a plaid shirt and plimsols; never attacked anyone at an airport and I only once ever heard him swear (and even that was debatable). He gave out nothing more or less than pure enjoyment. You didn’t go to a Rory show to make a political statement or to navel gaze; you went to tap your feet and clap your hands. And anyone who thinks he was Liam and Noel’s dad deserves a contemptuous slap.”

Without further ado, Rory Gallagher.

And to round off tonight’s show, a smattering of British pop from across the decades:

Next week: Something odd, I’m sure.
