Our man, Dave Ted Edwards steps up to the plate to give us his first Packet of Ten, one of our many distractions from the persistent headache that is Newcastle United Football Club. Apart from being a distant relation to the now deceased Palestinian Liberation Organisation’s very own Yasser Arafat, this Durham Mag’s musical taste has improved rapidly since he started sitting next to cool cats from Gateshead at the match. All of the Curiosity Killed The Cat and Simply Red records have now gone to that charity shop on Clayton Street. Yes, you were spotted!
He may turn up for games variously looking like an extra from Heroes of Telemark or en-route to the Henley Regatta but he’s not a bad sort really. Mossad agents in the Durham City area however, may disagree.
Anyway, eyes down this is Ted’s Packet of Ten for you:
Sex Pistols – Satellite
Joy Division – Digital
Lee Dorsey – Give It Up
Madness – Bed and Breakfast Man
Bob Dylan – Shelter from the Storm
The Smiths – Sheila Take a Bow
The Beat – Save it for Later
Stone Roses – Elephant Stone
The Who – Can’t Explain
New Order – World (Price of Love)
