James Last

I’ve never listened to James Last (till now), but thirty plus years ago sat outside college in a car with a drummer messing around with a tape recorder we recorded a tribute song to James Last as Simon Last, because that’s what you do when you’re a teenager in a band but don’t have the whole band there. Still have that tape somewhere, pen drumming and vocal guitar effects and fake crowd noises and all.


If we’d become famous that song could have been re-released today as a tribute to James Last.
