In 1971, at the “first” Glastonbury festival, as The Edgar Broughton Band finished their epic set, the late DJ Andy Dunkley famously announced over the PA, “Fuck me old boots, What a set!”. A tad radical as this was of course in the days when ‘blast’ was bad swearing. What does this have to do with today’s Tuesday Track ? Well last night, whilst thinking about what to choose for today’s track, I had a mind to give another blast of The Answering Machine’s 2009 debut album, Another City, Another Sorry. As It’s Over, It’s Over, It’s Over, started, I heard myself saying “Fuck me old boots, What a track!”
Clearly Andy’s exclamation 42 years ago remains with me but this IS a great track after all. Oh, and The Edgar Broughton Band’s set was pretty epic also.
