The Joint: Let me in your pub. I’m not looking for trouble, I’m looking for love.

Two weeks ago we made a bold claim that “Summer of Soul” was the best music documentary we’ve seen in years.

“The Sparks Brothers”, directed by Edgar Wright, might run it close though. At 2 hours and 20 minutes long it provides an exhaustive account of the Ron and Russell’s 50 year career.

Here Edgar Wright talks about his life – from child to auteur – in terms of the music he listened to. There’s a heavy debt to 70’s K-Tel and Ronco compilations.

And if you were expecting a Sparks laden playlist on the back of all that you are going to be disappointed. Not a Mael tune in sight. You’ll have to go back to a Joint from 4 years ago instead.

But on with today’s show…

The show: Yeah, so what? He smoked crack. He always had my back…

Catchy, joyful, upbeat, fuzzy and beautifully quirky song of the week (and inspiration for the blog title) goes to Woody and Jeremy‘s “My Old Bassist”.

And if that’s your… ahem… cup of tea… sorry… allow us to thoroughly recommend the album it comes from, Gravy in My Coffee.
