Un homme et une femme (1966) trailer

Back in the old days we used to do a cover of this song - the movie and the soundtrack are excellent but our version was a little ropey.

What's the Point?

Went to the Railway in Radstock to see this punk band (What's the Point) - they were great - lots of uptempo singalong compositions that went down very well with all present. Pub was friendly too so all in all a good evening.

Russian Civil war battle Tachanka vs White Cossacks

Haven't had much from the Russian Civil War recently on this blog - hopefully this Tachanka action will make up for it. The blurb says
'A scene from Soviet-Yugoslav 1958 movie "Aleksa Dundić" which shows a battle between Red Cavalry Tachankas and White Cossacks.'

Cabinet of Dr Caligari (1920)

It's relatively easy to be a film buff these days. You have the IMDB and accessible greats like this one online for your perusal. In the old days before videos it wasn't so easy. You'd have to go to late night screenings to watch unusual films abd if you wanted information you had to buy film books - my shelves are full of them - I don't consult them anymore as there is no need but they're there as a reminder of the days when information wasn't so easily come by. Anyway here's an early expressionist classic - I expect you have seen it but Conrad Veidt is one of my favourite actors (he plays the sleepwalker Cesar).

M.I.A 'Born Free'

It's very rare for me to see anything I like on Later with Jools Holland but I saw this last night and was much impressed. Of course it samples one of music's best riffs (I won't tell you - you can listen)and there is a nice feel to it.

Gene Vincent 'Bluejean Bop'

Interesting early clip with the man wearing an all leather ensemble - maybe the first time a rocker graced the stage in leather strides if I am not mistaken.
