Polyvinyl Craftsmen Transmission 374

Here's the third and final show from Laggers' Lounge, sort of. We'd recorded it all and when we came to download it the laptop didn't play ball. Last week's show was so long that it bolloxed the amount of memory we had and we lost the lot.

So, for this week we've put together the songs we played as a Spotify playlist, best we could do... A couple of Coop's songs weren't available so have been swapped for the closest alternative, a different tune from Alessandro Alessandroni and Bobby Womack's take on "It's All Over Now" to replace The C&C Boys' version.

Thursday 31 October 2019

Polyvinyl Craftsmen Transmission 373

Here's the second show from our road trip to Laggers' Lounge. As the booze flowed we totally lost track of time so it's a much longer show than usual. A sprinkling of spookiness to give it a seasonal flavour too so you can have it a day early for All Hallow's Eve.
