An interesting week again I hope you'll agree that it is an
interesting Suffolk 'n' Cool again. With surf from Finland to
accordion from France and much else besides, I hope you'll give it
a good listen and follow up on some of the music.
Vincent surprice - Ronnie and His
Twangin´ Little Fellow RHTLF (Finland)
Ronnie and his Twangin´ Little fellow was founded by Antti and Sami
in the beginning of 1995. We met by accident in Lahti City, when
Sami was on the way to sell his guitar amplifier. "After a short
conversation we decided to meet and test the amplifier in Sami's
train room. I was not going to buy it because of my financial
position, but of course didn"t tell that to Sami. In the same
evening after a little while testing the amplifier we realized that
we both are interesting in surf music."
ANTTI KUKKOLA Guitar
SAMI HUOTILAINEN Guitar and organ
MATTI VIRTANEN Bass
KALLE KOTIRANTA Drums
Burn - Grace Valhalla (Nancy,
From her Jamendo album Peak. I played Grace early in December and
since then I've listened to at least one track each day.
Grace is my alarm clock.
Thanks to a neat little app on the Mac called Aurora which wakes the laptop up from
sleep at a time of your choosing and plays whichever playlist you
want from iTunes. Even sends you to sleep.
Girls From Birkenhead - GK & The
Renegades (Liverpool, UK)
I played That's OK a
couple of weeks ago and mentioned this track.
ren·e·gade [ren-i-geyd] - adjective
1. an energetic, good-humoured, fun-filled experience. (i.e. "Last
night was so renegade!")
A charismatic, melody-driven band, Liverpool-based GK & The
Renegades continue to impress fans and critics alike with their
energy and ambition.

The email beer alert Ale
Mail from the Three
Horseshoes here at Charsfield in Suffolk just arrived with a
comment from a regular at the Shoes:
As Ben Franklin said: In wine there is wisdom, in beer there is
freedom, in water there is bacteria.
In a number of carefully controlled trials, scientists have
demonstrated that if we drink 1 litre of water each day, at the end
of the year we would have absorbed more than 1 kilo of Escherichia
coli, (E. coli) - bacteria, found in feces.
In other words, we are consuming 1 kilo of poop.
However, we do NOT run that risk when drinking wine & beer (or
tequila, rum, whiskey or other liquor) because alcohol has to go
through a purification process of boiling, filtering and/or
Remember: Water = Poop, Wine = Health
Therefore, it's better to drink wine and talk stupid, than to drink
water and be full of shit.

Note from Colin Gazeley of Ourobouros
who says "I've just listened to
your shows from September last year onwards. Listening to SnC is
like listening to PC Podcast with the weirdness increased by a
factor of 10. You play some very … um … shall we say interesting
music. A lot of it I wouldn't play myself, but having said that,
I've lined up Luna Halo and Two Hours Traffic to play on my
Nothing weird on this show Colin!
Mazurka pour Chantal - Sylvain
From one of his three Jamendo albums Par Coeur
"Here are a few tunes for listening
or playing at home, or better: dancing in a jig. Simple wish to
share these old tunes of our heritage, and to add my own tunes by
the way. Recorded on the corner on the living-room table, no
complicated things nor fantastic modernity in that !"
Je joue et chante les musiques traditionnelles accompagné de
l'accordéon diatonique depuis les années 70 - puis peu à peu j'ai
commencé à composer mes propres musiques et chansons sur le mode
traditionnel, avec l'idée qu'on ne puisse pas.
