Links Are Dead - I Know

I keep getting Emails from people asking me to re-upload the links and music etc. I think people are just getting to those particular pages so are not reading the reason for the dead links.

So I am putting this in place so hopefully people will read it and stop Emailing me about it.

The reason the links are dead is that my account with Media Fire has been closed with all 11,000 files lost. That is why you can not download the things and No I can not re-upload them.

Eventually I will start doing that again when I have found something suitable. In the meantime this blog will be information only blog.

Thank you all

Jona Lewie - You'll Always Find Me In The Kitchen At Parties

Lewie joined his first group, The Johnston City Jazz Band, while still at school in 1963, and started earning money in the music industry in 1968 as a solo blues singer accompanied by his own blues & boogie piano playing.

Also, showing signs as a singer songwriter, early recordings of his early compositions are sighted on the compilation album 'I Asked For Water She Gave Me... Gasoline', just four months before accepting an invitation to join the already popular cult blues band Brett Marvin and the Thunderbolts. This acceptance would elevate Lewie's career, enabling him to play at bigger and better venues and afford more recording opportunities.

Jona stayed with the Bretts until 1973, their mainstream hit single being 'Seaside Shuffle' another early Lewie composition. Despite its roots firmly embedded in cajun and 12 bar blues culture, the band, though not Keef Trouble, felt it was unashamedly commercial and quite at odds with the Thunderbolts usual style, and it was released under the one-off nom de disque Terry Dactyl and The Dinosaurs. The record did little on first release in 1971 but a year later on re-release reached number 2 in the UK Singles Chart.

However, Lewie looked likely to remain a part of a one-hit wonder group until he was signed up by Stiff Records in 1977. Following appearances on the Stiff package tours, he scored a solo hit with the humorous synthpop number, 'You'll Always Find Me in the Kitchen at Parties' co written with fellow Thunderbolt Keef Trouble in 1980, which made it to number 16 on the UK Singles Chart.
