"Love Will Keep Us Together": the opposite of Joy Division.

Had this song going thru my head all week. (Nice pharty-Moogy-bass-line)

(You might have to ramp the volume a little on this, tho; seems a bit quiet)

"The Captain": how brilliant it must be, to be called "The Captain"!!

Got his moniker from Brian Wison, apparently.

The Captain & Tennille are evil, I can't believe you've put this up without some sort of warning...I mean, pure, unadulterated evil...they've got a song called 'Brody Bounce', dedicated to their pet mutt, which is the most sinister thing I've ever heard. They used to send selected young anarchists to secure units in the late '70s and blast that track on a loop, 'til their brains turned to soup (you can see most of these youths in the '81 royal wedding footage - they're the ones sucking plastic union jack flags, crying and playing with bottle tops). It's on Youtube, but in the interests of sanity, please avoid it.

I heard a rumour that the 'Captain' faked a load of medical qualifications and set up some new age 'weight loss clinic' aboard a yacht, where he charged vulnerable, gullible women thousands of dollars to drink unsafe quantities of sea water.

Another rumour's that when they deserted A&M Records to join another label, somebody from A&M arranged for the Captain to contract herpes from a one-night stand, hoping to discredit and split the couple for good when Tennille realised what she'd 'caught' from her hubbie.

Apparently, Tennille was scared of having kids because she didn't want stretchmarks, so she paid a hypnotist to convince her that she'd literally 'given birth' to her two dogs. She used to get really angry when kids referred to her dogs as 'pets' and when the local school banned the hounds from going on field trips or taking part on sports day.

I can't substantiate these rumours, just saying what I've heard.

Martin, you should perform this as a radio play or something.
