With Just A Hint Of Mayhem

Music trivia, useless info, extra added random stuff and the odd rant from me

“All I own is just a picture in a broken frame” February 5, 2017

That marvellous 70s pop band Mud were once known as the Mourners and to promote themselves in the most ghoulish and appropriate way they could the band even had black business cards printed that carried the phrase ‘we’re dead with it’. Actually I kind of like the name the Mourners, but I guess Mud sticks, right?

One of my favourite Alice Cooper tracks is one of his lesser known singles which barely scraped into the US top 50 and peaked at number 12 in the UK. It is taken from the 1973 album ‘Muscle Of Love‘ and considering that it was released in 1973 it is to some folk confusingly titled “Teenage Lament ’74”. I used to have the album and the single on vinyl. So why am I telling you this? Well I learnt something about the song this week that I never knew before, or maybe I knew but had forgotten it. Anyway that little trivia nugget is that backing vocals on “Teenage Lament ’74” were provided by Liza Minelli.

This really is a strange video indeed!

Toyah Wilcox allegedly once had a pet rabbit called Fuckface. Have any of you had (or indeed still have) a pet with a strange or maybe offensive name?

Back in 1984 the first ever UK number one single to be written, produced and performed by the same artist hit the top of the chart. Sadly it was a song that I really don’t care for, “I Just Called To Say I Love You” by Stevie Wonder. However Stevie has written, produced and performed so many brilliant songs I am happy to forgive him that one. If only that song had not reached the chart summit then the first single to top the chart that was written, produced and performed by the same artist would have been “A Different Corner” by the late, great George Michael. A far, far better song in my opinion.
