History Never Repeats...

Ever wondered what happens if you try to scan a laser etched single? It works quite well, actually. Iain over at Down With Tractors reminded me of this one (Iain, I still have the Styx laser etched album, even though it was bobbins ;) ). History Never Repeats is a typically fine piece of melodic pop/rock.

Want to hear a bizarre Split Enz cover? How about The Wiggles featuring Tim Finn singing Six Months In A Leaky Boat? When you have three young kids you get to hear this sort of thing. The strange thing is, if you could edit Captain Feathersword (don’t ask) from the mix I think I would prefer the Wiggles’ version. Greg (the yellow Wiggle) has a nice voice that blends well with Tim’s.

Hurrah! That's the one! :) It still looks good, doesn't it? The album it comes from "Waiata" (or Corroboree, if you're antipodean) is great too......
