Pretty Woman is definitely in my top five all time fucking bangers. Basing this entirely on walking home from the pub alone, headphones in, singing my tits off.

Frankie & Bennies-core

Y’all seen that gig he did with Tom Waits on piano and Elvis Costello and Springsteen on guitar? It’s all on youtube, absolutely cracking footage.


Though in this particular track Waits just skulks around like a bored teenager :joy:

Good old Roy. Amazing voice and the inspiration for the best fan-fiction ever: http://michaelkelly.artofeurope.com/karl.htm
