TOMMYKNOCKERS BEAT CLUB – THE RIP-EDITION, VOLUME 1 |
Unapproved but unforgotten corpora delicti from the catacombs
As Detlef from Lohmar asked for, here’s the first set of three new Tommyknockers compilations. They’re in no way meant to substitute or even equal the incomparable knowledge and wit of my good friend the Lolly Pope but it seemed the best way to still feel him beside me. Since he had started the series, we exchanged 60s nuggets he had dug up from his “scruffy archive” and I used to send him presumable "Tommyknocker candidates" I had picked from the net. In this way, a friendship was established and the nearly daily charge of his amazing comments made of hilarious puns and dadaistic word-games were as important to me as was his unique selections of rare UK-gems. Thus, half of the tracks presented in this upcoming threepack have the Lolly Pope’s approval as they were planned to show up in one of the next Beat-Wunderbar-sequels or, at least, were taken into consideration, whereas the other half you’re gonna hear is tracks I was pretty sure would certainly please him. Even though we never met, we were “soulmates” and shared exactly the same, odd, taste in music (except for very few bands such as the Monks or Freddy & the Dreamers which would spark even more amazing discussions). I guess you can image how I miss him, and I’m sure many of you will, and this effort here should bring back the same spirit of the Tommyknockers series and that unique, all-British Beat Wunderbar-sound, at least for three new installments of un-compiled and luckily un-lost Tommyknockers. Parts 2 and 3 coming up in a few days. I hope you’ll dig this postumus-edition and I hope the Pope will send his blessings. Ego me absolvo.

Re: Tommyknockers RIP-Edition Vol. 1
Hallo Detlef, vielen Dank für Dein Mitgefühl und die Ermutigung weiterzumachen. Ich hoffe, Dir wird die erste Folge gut gefallen, auch wenn sie natürlich nicht auf demselben Niveau der Original-Tommyknockers sein kann... der 2. Teil kommt am Wochenende....

Danke, Michael !
So richtig kann ich`s noch nicht fassen (immer wieder eigentlich), wie ungerecht die Welt ist.
Deshalb umso mehr Dank, daß Du die musikalische (und soziale) Stimmung von Werner Lolly Pope aufrecht erhältst und weiterführst- von der klasse Musik mal ganz zu schweigen...
Ich freue mich auf die nächsten Folgen- und natürlich auf die von Detlev aus Lohmar- Liebe Grüße aus Kiel !
Hi J aus K,
ich hoffe nur, daß die RIP-Editions ein klein wenig über die große Traurigkeit hinweghelfen werden.. ersetzen können sie den guten Werner sicher nicht.. am Wochenende werde ich Teil 2 ins Netz stellen...
Alles Gute und vielen Dank für Deine Anteilnahme!

Thanks for the new edition of Tommyknockers Micheal. I think you have really captured the spirit of the original, great selections. I really loved hearing "She's Got Quality", Darbashire never disappoints!
it feels good to read your encouraging comments, my friend, I hope the Lolly Pope will agree with you .... the next Un-Lost Tommyknockers selection is in progress, 15 tracks are on my short-list by now.. and yes, Steve Darbishire never disappoints!
thx a lot!
