What they say about this music:

"I really don’t think it’s the sort of music you would want your daughter to listen to, would you?."
- Mrs K Featherstonehaugh, W.I. President

"These musicians are just a load of bloody pansies, aren’t they?"
- Arthur Wainwright, Hull City Rovers R.L.F.C.

"What these sort of people need is a good haircut and a bit of army discipline, don't they?"
- Major T S Rawlings DSO & bar (retired)

"There's absolutely no question that this music has a deleterious effect on young people’s morals, is there?."
- Prof. O A Grenville-Plunkett, F.R.S.

"You don’t want to listen to this bloody rubbish, do you?"
- Phil's dad

What they say about us:

"They’re fab!"
- Tracy, hairdresser from Luton

"Wow! They're the bees knees!"
- Brian, accountant from Stoke Newington

"I like the young one with the wavy hair!"
- Linda, bank clerk from Dudley

"The thing is, the driving beat has like an insidious effect on the subconscious causing listeners to sort of, well, completely disregard social conventions and really shake their hips!"
- John, philosophy student at York University

"I want more!"
- overheard on the 91 bus from Blue Lane to Kings Cross

"These boys certainly know how to party!"
- Oscar Wilde

Alright now
Always on the run
At the dark end of the street
Baby love
Back to black
Beds are burning
Big Bird
Billie Jean
Black Betty
Chain of fools
Come together
Crazy
Ella, elle l'a
Ex’s & Oh’s
Fever
Flip flop fly
Gimme some lovin
Happy
Heroes
Hey Joe
Hold the line
Hush
I can't stand the rain
I can’t dance
I'm a man
In the midnight hour
Johnny B Goode
Le Freak
Let me entertain you
Mercy
Messin with the kid
Mustang Sally
No women no cry
Non, non, rien n'a changé
Old time rock'n'roll
Papa was a rollin stone
People get ready
Play that funky music
Rolling in the deep
Soul man
Superstition
Sweet home Chicago
Take me to the river
The passenger
The power of love
The thrill is gone
The way you make me feel
Tutti frutti
Unchain my heart
Voyage voyage
Walkin by myself
Walking on sunshine
Walk this way
When love comes to town
Why don't you do right

Blue Lane Band are (L-R):

Le Monsieur – drums and drainpipe jeans
Fled the city of culture for the capital of cool. Divides his time between old chestnuts and making a lot of noise. His favourite pastime is rock'n'roll.

Phil Cool – keys and bow ties
Left his management position, credit cards and penthouse flat all behind to become rich and famous.
He hopes to get old before he dies.

Fifi la Voix – vocals and black fishnet stockings
As a child, she helped her mother in the kitchen.
She wants to settle down in the country with seven horses, an offshore bank account and a private helicopter.

Red Baker – lead vocals and fireman's helmet
He always wanted to be in the middle of flashing lights and loud noises, and now he is.
In his spare time, he likes to polish his brass.

Errol Flyng – lead guitar and spiv suits
Hails from an obscure country somewhere in the East and fled as far as he could to seek his fortune.
He enjoys watching television.

The Expert – bass, vocals and winklepickers
Gave up his punk band and life-style for a daily commute to a steady 9 to 5 office job.
On holiday he's keen on paddling his own canoe.
