SONG FOR TODAY: Link Wray - 'The Wild One'

So on a visit to the same charity shop i went to yesterday, i had more time to search through the other records, and what goods i found! A vinyl copy of 'The Great Rock N Roll Swindle', an Elvis box set and in the charity shop across the road i found a CD... another soundtrack one. This time the soundtrack to the ill fated TV adaption of 'Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels', the soundtrack of which looked far better than the series. And as well as lots of good stuff (varied too) there are some shit moments... however THIS is genius... a nice slice of surf guitar from an artist who until now has remained completely unknown to me, who somehow managed to make a 60's surf classic in the year 1990.....
