Human Fly like you've never heard before

How to turn into a Goo Goo Muck

The answers no before you ask, this cool cat ain't me,

How do you do the Goo Goo Muck?

Mr A the Barbers tribute to Lux Interior

Watcha Wierdos

For the next few weeks I'll be posting some random Cramps related posts to mark the forthcoming first anniversary of Lux Interior's untimely death.
Now if your already got the 'BUG' for the Cramps then some of my postings you'll gonna have seen already BUT, if your not fully up with all things Crampy then stay tuned to this blog cos in the next few posts I'll be bringing you a whole load of trash that'll be worth sifting through!

The posts will culminate in volume seventeen of YOU GOT GOOD TASTE being delivered to you on February 4th Lux's anniversary. I'll let you know more about the content closer to the date but lets just say it's gonna feature music of a more downbeat nature reflecting my current melancholic mood. Since the day I first dropped the needle onto my new copy of 'Gravest Hits', and first saw The Cramps in London 1981 I have been obsessed with the mad psychotic rock'n'roll rhythm beat out by Lux, Ivy and The Cramps. So if you too share my sentiments then I hope YOU GOT GOOD TASTE's forthcoming selection of dark'n'moody tunes will mark the day in a more sombre and reflective tone.

To get it subscribe here and have the coolest, dark, twanging music set the moody mood on the 4th february.

But hey enough of all that blubbin' Lux or Ivy wouldn't want us to sit around moping, cos we should be rockin'n'reelin, so my first post is a mad slice of TV with Lux seemingly having the time of his life with a puppet!! Check this out.

Stay Sick Mr A the Barber

Mr A the Barber's classic CUTS vol. 1

YOU GOT GOOD TASTE - classic CUTS vol. 1

Watcha Weirdos
Mr A the Barber here with a New Show for the New Year!

Any regular listeners will notice that this is NOT a themed show, thats because I've decided to relax the fomat a bit in order for me to play some of my favourite tunes that might not have ever seen the light of day. So that's why I've called it cleverly Mr A the Barber's classic CUTS, get it!!!!! So as the title suggests this show will featuring some of my favourite rockabilly, R'nB, twang (you know what i mean)that you've heard for a while, now if these don't get you up and dancin' then.............

Now if the themed show was more your thing then don't fret cos I've got a few more ideas bubbling away, but in the meantime if you've got any suggestions for future subjects then let me have them and I'll see what I can do!

Hope you enjoy this little mix.
