13: The Beards Of Navarone


The Hobo Gobbelins – “Phantasmagoric Cabaret” (5:51)

The Irregulars – “Stars” (5:31)

Tungsten Tommy – “Noisy Ghosts” (3:12)

The Hobo Gobbelins and I have a mutual acquaintance in Lana Guerra, whom he recognised in CROOKED LITTLE VEIN as the girl with the eyepatch tattoo. So here’s to friends we’ve never met yet. The Irregulars are another of the mildly disturbing manifestations of Lauren Heckman, The Thing With The Stuff. We love Lauren because she made her mother read CROOKED LITTLE VEIN.

The covering letter for “Noisy Ghosts” read as follows: “Tungsten Tommy got it ALL figured out. Tungsten Tommy got the moves AND the shapes. Tungsten Tommy don’t care if you don’t care cause he AIN’T leavin’ you behind this time. Tungsten Tommy’s breakin’ LOOSE.” I decided to run the piece despite the lack of any mention of CROOKED LITTLE VEIN whatsoever. Tungsten Tommy would appear to be one of the voices in Tom Wilby‘s pants.
