So Damn Pretty

Regular reader and comment-leaver George comes here chiefly for the rockabilly which 50% of his household look forward to each Friday. He recently left a comment mentioning Shockheaded Peters, who I’ve only got one song by (on at least two different compilations). The song is a corker though, a stomping, jazz-flecked ode to homosexual love and the thrill of walking through town with someone good looking on your arm.

‘So weep in a way and rejoice in another
We’ll never feel the pain of being a mother’

I, Bloodbrother Be (£4,000 Love Letter)
