The Ground You Walk On




Casiotone for the Painfully Alone
The Real Tuesday Weld
The Incredible Vickers Brothers
These three I love.. I guess because they are not the normal alternative option. if that makes sense.


Simple Kid
Common
The Postal Service
Different versions of hero worship I guess.


Horace Andy
Marianne Faithful
Negativland



Tower of Song would be perfect for this (Cohen has been a-zzeded)..
overlap gets you the only other vocalist (M.Faithful) to perfect...
"It's not my fault I had no choice...
I was born with the gift of a golden voice"
...and I love Negitivland...

I hadn't heard the Horace Andy song but I'm familiar with National Hero's Circle at the National Arena in Kingston. Bob's statue was supposed to go there but the Seaga govt. didn't like the image it presented, Bob as a rastaman, so They commissioned another, a more acceptable version and put the original in a back room at the National gallery. I did a fairly extensive interview regarding the entire business with Dawn Scott, a prominent Ja. artist and posted it with pictures of both versions at my blog. I think it was deleted accidentally and I need to put it back up.

@gf
Did you see that Banatski Sokolac, a village in Serbia, unveiled Europe's first Bob Marley statue.
A Croatian and a Serbian musician join to unveil it as he promoted peace and tolerance in his music... and that can't be a bad thing in the Balkans, can it.

@frogp
it is indeed a great version of 'tower of song' Lenny Cohen comes close to being a hero for me and Marianne does the song justice.

@shoey
I might do a post about the designs soon.. watch this space.
