A year today one of the world's finest songwriters of the post-punk era died. To mark this sorrowful loss of one of the greats, I post here a small part of his exceptional legacy of love songs, all with that certain frisson, including an exceptionally fiery Easy Come, Easy Go; the ever emotive Bachelor Kisses; and a particularly powerful rendition of Streets Of Your Town.
All songs were captured live in Hamburg, 31 October 2000.
Gone, but never forgotten.
Easy Come, Easy Go
Streets Of Your Town
You may think me stupid - frankly, that is the least of my worries - but I add here a photograph of the Grant McLennan shrine at FET HQ.
Ahem. I will leave off here.
