  • The long firm

    Dunno if anyone else saw the first episode of this on the box last night, but I couldn't help but feel that the accompanying soundtrack was a bit of a let-down. The original stuff they used was all 60s pastiche, and for originals we got nothing more enticing than Sandie Shaw.

    Surely a period luminary would have been only too pleased to put something together for this?

    I agree that the music was a bit Heartbeat, nevertheless I'd like to know what the two tracks in the clubscene were (especially the second, hammond track)? And whether 'When The Lovelight Starts Shining' (or whatever it's actually called) by Dusty actually got a single release?

    Cheers!

        BBC2. Not sure it was *that* good but probably good enough to tune in again next week...

          I thought the tunes were not too bad... In the novel the club wasn&#39;t meant to be a ultra hip place anyway. But what I remember played was:-

          James Brown - Night Train
          Jimmy Smith - The Cat (is that the hammond track Rich?)
          Miracles - Mickey&#39;s Monkey...

          Just found out some of my mates were extras in the club scenes as well.


          The &gt;jack the hat&lt; episode should be good if it&#39;s anything like the book. Plenty of scenes in THE FLAMINGO club and also some ska clubs - like RAM JAM in Brixton....

          well, I&#39;ll wait and see how it translates onto the screen

              You should - one of Jimmy&#39;s best known. Bob Bernard will be rocking his version come October...

                Was that Ocean Colour Scene last night? And they must have a deal for Dusty&#39;s tracks.

                    I watched last night&#39;s. It was as dull as the Jake Arnott books, I thought. A really overrated crime writer if you ask me. They should make Derek Raymond&#39;s books into TV films. They&#39;re proper dark. He&#39;s the nearest the UK&#39;s got to a James Ellroy, innit.

                      The main character sounds like he&#39;s trying to do a dirty den impression. What is sposed to be a hard man? Gangster? Chancer?

                      It didn&#39;t add up to anything. If you didn&#39;t see the &#39;affair&#39; after about 3 seconds then you were a blind man. Total predictable shite.

                      I did enjoy spotting the Telecom tower in 1960&#39;s london at one point too.

                        er...it was built in the first half of the 1960&#39;s, and it IS in London...am I missing the point here? mind you I didn&#39;t see the programme, so I should just shut up really. There is a train in Quadrophenia that looks much too modern, though.

                          Well the tower wasn&#39;t finished till 65 and this series is set in the early 60&#39;s.

                          Struck me as being out of place at the time&#33; Thats all.

                            I remember that, John. It was an Inter City 125.

                              precisely&#33; and accoring to my 1978 British Rail complete timetable, Inter City 125&#39;s shouldn&#39;t have been on the 5.15 Waterloo to Brighton anyway&#33; I ask you  - not only 15 years too modern, but also on the wrong service too&#33; it all gets too much sometimes, you know....
