Have Mersey On Us!
If you like your thrillers gritty, you’ll welcome the return of gruff antihero Tim Roth in Sky Atlantic’s Tin Star.
We for one are grateful the show moved from its original setting in the rocky vistas of a Canadian town and over to the UK – without that we’d never have licensed The Roadrunners’ ‘The Leaving Of Liverpool’, a traditional local folk song interpreted in the Merseybeat style with new lyrics and contemporary (for 1965, mind) references.
Sticking with the theme, we’ve also purchased the rights to the 1973 reunion album Resurrection from scouse pals of John, Paul, George and Ringo, The Big Three. Finally, there is a 3CD anthology from former Stairs leader Edgar Jones due out in January. Boss!
