A Good Day



Dirk read this morning’s Lily Allen post and commented that he hoped Lily and Mick Jones’ cover of Straight To Hell was still up. It wasn’t but I’m having a good day so it is now. A Level results have been good and I’ve just opened a letter that says I successfully overturned a parking ticket from UK Parking Control that was looking like it was going to cost us 90 quid. Victory is mine!

Blank Expression



As a part two to the Amy Winehouse ska covers e.p. Lily Allen did a similar thing releasing a Two Tone inspired single (on vinyl obviously). The A-side was a cover of The Specials debut Gangsters (recorded with Terry Hall and Lynval Golding) and this was the B-side, a cover of Blank Expression. It’s a corker.

I didn’t expect when I started Bagging Area that Lily Allen would get three posts. Equally, when checking the statistics for the blog I’ve long been puzzled why the Lily Allen and Mick Jones cover of Straight To Hell is the most visited, most read post here, many thousand ahead of the next most read post. Then I realised it’s probably because of the picture I used. Amazing what a bit of cheek will do isn’t it?
