Here’s a twinset of sunny delights and summer smashers that never were.

Jimmy Webb’s boys (Christiaan, Justin and James) clearly inherited their ol’ dad’s fine ear for a melody and his talent for tunesmithery.

The Webb Brothers – Summer People

Summer People

Ding Dong! Avon calling (to the faraway towns). All the way from Devizes The Davey Brothers pollinated big beaty rock with sweet tooth pop to make this high energy hybrid – now if only I could find that pesky vid’ for ‘She’s So Fine’.

The Davey Brothers – Sunshine Day

Sunshine Day

Our town of sunny Southend is twinned with Sopot, a very dandy riviera affair, offering several accommodation options ‘hotels, motels and campings‘ and a sprinkling of swinging ‘Disco Clubs‘ for leg shakings, including the temptingly named ‘Galaxy‘, ‘Viva‘ and ‘Derby‘ (eh?)

Back Friday playmates.

PS – if anyones’s got a copy of the Mint Royale remix below (Frank Sinatra ‘This Town’) – could you do a bloke a flavour and knock me a copy? I’m buzzing for it.
