So this Sunday really does see 'This Last Night' for Soft Cell as the band plays it's last ever (honest guv) live gig. Finances (specifically a distinct lack of) prevent me from going but I was fortunate enough to see 'em a couple of times during their noughties reboot. No idea what the set list's going to be this weekend but it'd be nice to hear one or two of their more obscure tracks, like this sleazy beauty. If you're going have a good 'un...and try not to weep too much during Say Hello Wave Goodbye.

"Who?" you may ask. Well, if you're a fan of Heaven 17 you'll certainly know his artwork if not his name as he was responsible for several classic Heaven 17 covers including Penthouse and Pavement, The Luxury Gap and How Men Are (a bit of a forgotten classic in my humble opinion). RIP Ray.
So, Mercury Music Award time again tonight. As ever it's a bit of a mixed bag and the best album's highly unlikely to win (just cast your minds back to 2016 when Bowie's Blackstar lost out to Skepta, what were the judges thinking...?) but there's some good stuff in the shortlist (and some not so good stuff too, but we'll gloss over that). Personally I'd like Everything Everything to win, followed by Nadine Shah and then Wolf Alice, but what do I know eh?

I meant to post the new single from Boy George and Culture Club last week but, you know, life, work and everything in between. It's a neat little update of the Culture Club sound with George in particularly good form vocally. Hopefully the band can all get on with each other this time and health issues won't get in the way of tours and stuff as the world could really do with a little Culture Club right now...

How lovely is this? Funnily enough I was just wondering what had happened to Darwin Deez and, as if by magic, there's a bunch of new(ish) material from him on You Tube. Apparently he did the vid for this track himself too. Good grief.
In case you're wondering who the hell Darwin Deez is maybe this track will refresh your memory.
Awesome eh? Hey, us bros with dodgy moustaches have to big each other up from time to time.
