winter is blue

OLOF ARNALDS - MADRID
i first posted an olof song in july and called her the 'icelandic vashti'. Q magazine then did a review of her and stole my line- and quoted "icelandic vashti"!
if you trust my past posts- then trust me on this - think vashti, the wicker man and a haunting, eerie folk vibe and then you should really appreciate olof.
what do you think?

LYNN REDGRAVE (right) - WHILE I'M STILL YOUNG
this stomping good track is taken from the AMAZING film 'smashing time' which i saw again for the first time in years last week - and it is still totally MARVY! Great lyrics, groovy beats and wonderful ba-ba-ba-ba backing singers. enjoy!

on the left of the picture is rita tushingham just before she falls into a puddle and then exclaims that her 'knickers are all nasty and clammy!'
