THE WEEKEND STARTS HERE:

...with THE JAM! Mod punks who were so influential on the early Pate; let's begin with one of my faves, "In the City," and "Going Underground" the curiously Beatle-esque "Start" plus Pate fave "Little Boy Soldiers" from the same gig. Follow it with Pate staples "Happy Together" and "Ghosts," chased with their take on The Kinks' "David Watts." I have to include the non-live cover of "Heatwave" and "Strangetown" for reasons apparent if you watch. That Motown R & B strain would continue in the last leg of the band's stretch, on originals like "Town Called Malice" and their cover of Curtis Mayfield's "Move On Up." BONUS: The studio clip for "That's Entertainment." Because it is.

DUM DUM GIRLS stopped by World Cafe for a chat and mini-set.
