    Nuggets 316 – Covers IX 

    Wanda Jackson

    Reasons to love a cover;

    • It is a fresh version of a song that you already like;
    • It is a song by one of your favourite artists covering a song that you haven’t heard before.

    Another mix of covers follows. You will notice a change in the music player. Problems, problems… Click away and you will figure out what to do.

    I am particularly fond of the Juliana Hatfield cover of the Olivier Newton John song. She has turned it into a real banger.

    The Bennie & The Jets cover is also fab.

    Looking forward to seeing Teenage Fanclub when they play next year.

    Nuggets 299 – Deutschland 83 

    Nuggets 299 - Electro Chug

    I really enjoyed the recent German TV series  Deutschland 83.

    TRAILER: Deutschland 83 | Coming Soon | Channel 4

    The series is set in 1983 when East German paranoia was at its height. Martin Rauch is a young guy sent to spy in West Germany to find out if the Americans are about to attack. The programme resonates because the sound track is rich with tunes of the early 80’s I heard  when I was studying in Dunedin. Martin and I share similar times except I was carefree and living the life as student whilst he, and millions of other Germans, lived in real fear of a nuclear war.

    As with Justified, I imagined my own soundtrack to the TV series and here ’tis.

    There follows a video of the title track followed by a Spotify playlist of the soundtrack to the series.

    Peter Schilling – Major Tom 1983 NDW

    Back in the West we were oblivious to the struggles of the East German peoples, and instead hung out in clubs dancing like this…

    Trisomie 21 The Last Song


    More about this German New Wave / Post Punk Band from Hamburg here… and here’s another of their tunes.

    Heaven 17

    Is it just me or does Glenn Gregory (the singer) look like Draco Malfroy in Harry Potter?


    Heaven 17 – The Height Of The Fighting

    dd elle

    Heavenly Beat


    Heavenly Beat – Honest (Local Live In-Studio)



    Big fan of Austra. That voice! Even better with three singers but sadly twin sisters Sari and Romy Lightman aka Tasseomancy are no longer involved.

    Like Grimes the band is Canadien; must be something in the snow…

    This gem appears in the above playlist and the dance clip at the start of this entry. The band is from France / Belgium. It took me ages to run down this track after hearing it as part of a YouTube playlist.
