You may have noticed this blog is rather keen on Girl Groups, but the lads can do retro too. Alasdair Dinnewell and The 3D Glasses are a Leeds based 50’s throwback rock ‘n’ roll band. They describe ‘Anna Gram’ (above) as “more of a doo-woop number, opening with a 3 part vocal harmony (because the vocal harmony intro isn’t used enough in our opinion). This song tells the story of Anna Gram, a mixed up girl in a mixed world. ‘When she gets the look in her eye, though she laughs she means to cry’. ‘Hatred, doubt and silent screams, just another one of her dreams’. We’ve all known girls like Anna.”
They also have a song called Fascist Sue -which is apparently ” A moral tale documenting the dilemma many have had, is it ok to sleep with a really good looking fascist? Everytime the protagonist attempts to make his escape he’s drawn back in. ‘I should have stopped and got out of the door, but her hand on my leg made me want more’ – ‘I’d be more concerned about all the swastikas, if she wasn’t standing there wearing just her knickers’
Right thats your lot for a week as we’re off to New York
