Know When To Oldham

I have to be brisk and business-like today. Things to do, people to see, you know how it is.

Here is one song each from two of the Oldham brothers, William and Nedworth. Despite concealing their identities behind silly pseudonyms you can still detect the family resemblance. 

As an extra treat I've added something by good old Uncle Spooner.

"Madeleine-Mary" - Bonnie "Prince" Billy

"Follow The Bangalory Man" - Old Calf

"The Lord Loves A Rolling Stone" - Spooner Oldham

Instead of our usual music video, here's a fantastic clip about efforts to promote tourism in the town of Oldham from 1976, worth watching for the wallpaper in the council offices alone.
