A Musical Interlude - The Bad Shepherds

The Bad Shepherds are based in Chagford, quite close to the Bee, and are the brainchild of Adrian Edmondson, who will be familiar to anyone over forty from The Young Ones.  They specialise in folk cover versions of punk classics by the Clash, the Undertones etc, and also do a very nice rendition of Kraftwerk's The Model which makes you realise that it was actually a folk song all along.  Here, for your listening pleasure, is their version of Once in a Lifetime...

oh...I remember well me and my brother turning the T.V volume down low and secretly lapping up episodes of The Young Ones when we were in our very early teens (sorry mummy). The University challenge episode featuring Motorhead is fantastic! Mind you...I am in my 20's...so not quite the 40's club yet. Anyway, if you enjoyed the above video check out 'Hayseed Dixie', a rather more commercial, American approach, but extremely consumable!

If you like this sort of thing and Pink Floyd, check out Luther Wright and the Wrong's complete "The Wall" entitled "Rebuild the Wall". it is very marvelous indeed.
I think you would enjoy it even if you had never heard "The Wall"
