    Ideas and Possibilities for 2020

    Boris Johnson doesn't look at all well in recent footage. Nothing trivial, I hope!

    Passed-Punks & No-Wavers

    Most likely due to Pat Smear of the Foo Fighters having also been in The Germs.

    The EU Referendum Hokey Cokey

    The FA Cup 3rd round replay on BBC1 will be still in the first half of extra time by then. Not going well for her, is it?

    That article only covers a small number of the significant sessions she made. Clydie King, usually together Venetta Fields and Sherlie Matthews, were the go-to backing for many Los Angeles recording sessions for the majority of the 1970s. They were not always credited, or simply credited as The Blackberries. Other acts she definitely worked with include Captain Beefheart (on 'Clear Spot'), Tim Buckley (on 'Greetings From LA'), Gene Clark (on 'No Other'), and possibly Stevie Wonder (on 'Music Of Of Mind' - uncredited). There's also some other less worthy acts she backed up - she's on Leo Sayer's 'Endless Flight' (available from a charity shop near you) and possibly also a James Last album (he recorded 'Best Kept Secret' in LA with the usual LA session crew, and Venetta Fields is pictured on the back cover).

    Crashing Companies

    Oddly Warner Brothers do own the rights and back catalogue of the old His Master's Voice record label, and even pressed up some classical CDs on that label recently to be sold exclusively through HMV stores.
  9. April 1945 saw the deaths of three prominent world leaders - FDR, the Italian chap, and the one who stole Chaplin’s moustache.

    Mr Bongo is apparently still in hospital in Morocco, and the coup seems to be over.
