The Return Of Friday Night Is Rockabilly Night 87

The return of Lonesome Town, the Ricky Nelson song covered by The Cramps that was here last week. This time it’s Holly Golightly’s version from her excellent Singles Round Up album.

On finishing a long autumn term, on the day we finished for the Christmas holiday, I once passed a much older member of staff out in absolute lashing rain and wind, both of us heading for the car park looking to make our exits. ‘In the words of the prophet’ he said ‘thank fuck that’s over’.

Tonight is commonly known as Mad Friday- pub anyone?

Dang! Something’s gone wrong with the timed post function. Ah well.

The Return Of Friday Night is Rockabilly Night 86

The Cramps come back for Friday night, at least partly because I wanted an excuse to post this gif. Originally a hit for Ricky Nelson, Lonesome Town gained fame in the 90s due to Pulp Fiction. Holly Golightly’s done a version too but I think Lux and Ivy nailed it best.
