Teenage busker going all Michael Shenker on UFO's Rock Bottom.

As one of the first comments has it, all those folk just walking past obl8vious...

I doubt if they're oblivious, Steph, just studiously ignoring soneone who has decided to impose himself on them.  Yes, he's very good, there's no doubt about that but I, for one, hate having other people's decibels imposed on me, in shops, transport, or wherever.  Nobody has any rights in a constitutionless country but my non-rights are surely as valid as his.

Things I did not about until recently: Motörhead's covers album, imaginatively entitled Under Cöver.  Contains a version of Bowie's "Heroes" :o

It's not nearly as terrible as you might imagine, but does suffer from a lack of Robert Fripp.

Robert Fripp! Bloody hell. That's going back a bit ain't it. I'm sure he was on Rock Bottom, with Robert Wyatt. I might have that wrong of course!
Certainly never seen cycling south of Sussex

Mr Fripp's CV is as long and varied as a lengthy thing of perpetual change.  I'm sure I heard him say that he took a day trip to Berlin to record his guitar part on "Heroes" before going back to whatever it was he was up to.  Probably an Eno Collaboration.

You have, it was Fred Frith. Fripp's work is commercial, and somewhat jaunty, by comparison.

OOOH, it was a Fripp/Frith mix-up! Scanning down the Wikipaedia listing, I see Nick Mason was the producer. Yes, that Nick Mason! And I don't mean Nick Mason from Yes, as there is no such thing!

Having only recently discovered Jane Weaver (how on earth has she passed me by up till now?) I’ve been going through her back catalogue and discovered this gem - a psych-folktronica take on a country classic...

Eno Collaboration.

I see what you did there.

Although surely Heroes was the Eno Collaboration, so he must have gone home to do something else?

They segue into it at 4:00m. Wish I could play guitar like Warren Haynes.

Check out their other covers. I particularly liked their swing version of Aha's "Take on Me" and this one of Hall and Oat's "Rich Girl"
