This should please a couple of people, while we were playing on Saturday there was a couple who kept asking for The Jam. I did try to tell them (but it was bloomin’ loud) that we had Town Called Malice almost ready. We don’t want to do a bad version of any song though, and it just wasn’t ready for Saturday!
But… with a bit of time until our next gig at The Five Bells on the 10th of May, we aim to have it ready to rock!
What a gig! Thanks to everyone who came down to see us at Qudos tonight. The place was packed right from the off and the dancefloor full to the point we had to wait for people to leave before we could get our cases in to pack down!
If you have any photos you’d like to share with us, send them over to firstname.lastname@example.org
This is the second song from the album Unbreakable by Break Cover and is by by American singer and producer Pharrell Williams, from the Despicable Me 2 soundtrack album. It also serves as the lead single from Williams’ second studio album, G I R L (2014). The song was written and produced by Williams. It was released on November 21, 2013 alongside a long-form music video. The song was reissued on December 16, 2013 by Back Lot Music, under exclusive license to Columbia Records, a division of Sony Music Entertainment. “Happy” has been highly successful, topping the US Billboard Hot 100 chart and charts in 23 other countries. It has sold one million copies in the United Kingdom, and has reached the summit on three separate occasions, both records in their own right. Williams provided vocals for French duo Daft Punk’s 2013 album Random Access Memories. After returning from the Paris recording sessions, he attended a meeting with record label managers, who said that the results were “spectacular” and that “Get Lucky” would be Daft Punk’s next single. They also made Williams an offer to record his own album, to which he agreed quickly, “overwhelmed that someone wanted to know what’s in my heart.” “Happy” was written and produced by Williams, with backing vocals by Rhea Dummett, Trevon Henderson, Ashley L. Lee, Shamika Hightower, Jasmine Murray and Terrence Rolle. The track was digitally edited and arranged by Andrew Coleman and Mike Larson, who also recorded it, with assistance from Matthew Desrameaux, at Circle House Studios inMiami, Florida. The song was later mixed by Leslie Brathwaite at Music Box Studios in Atlanta, Georgia. This version was recorded in a 16 hour session by Break Cover at Sound on Sound Studios in Southampton, UK.

This is the first song on the album Unbreakable by Break Cover and is by English supergroup Bad Company. It is their biggest-hit and is considered their most popular song which is from their 1974 self-titled debut album. As a single, this song reached #5 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart and #1 on Cashbox magazine’s Top 100 Singles chart.
The song is credited to guitarist Mick Ralphs, who tuned his guitar in the open-C tuning C-C-G-C-E-C. Ralphs stated that “It never really sounds right in standard tuning. It needs the open C to have that ring.” (Brave – sorry we play it in standard with the two guitars playing different parts to give it that feeling) In 1990 the song was used in a Tony Scott-directed European Levi’s commercial titled “Beach”. The song was featured in the 1994 film Wayne’s World 2.
Bad Company was founded in 1973 by two former Free band members — singer Paul Rodgers and drummer Simon Kirke — as well as Mott the Hoople guitarist Mick Ralphs and King Crimson bassist Boz Burrell. Peter Grant, who managed British rock band Led Zeppelin, agreed to manage the band (he managed Bad Company until 1982, when Swan Song Records folded). Bad Company enjoyed great success throughout the 1970s. Many of their singles, such as “Bad Company”, “Can’t Get Enough”, “Good Lovin’ Gone Bad”, and “Feel Like Makin’ Love”, remain popular with rockers of both the past and present, and their hits remain staples of classic rock radio.
