There is nothing we love more here at Jammy Toast than listening to some of our favourite tunes. From time to time we will post a music video from an artist or genre that we think will be enjoyable to you; our friends. We often feature music that you may not have come across before, or music that maybe you just missed the first time around. Try and listen with an open mind, you never know, you may find something you can add to your iPod. If you have any music videos you would like us to feature then drop us a line – we are always happy to listen to requests but we cannot promise to feature everyone’s favourite

We have wanted to feature Nazareth on Bear Music for some time but all the videos we could find are either very poor quality or covered in logos and/or adverts. So we decided to take a leaf out of The Old Grey Whistle Test (OGWT). On the OGWT if the band they wanted to feature were not available they used to make a video of a track with an old cartoon or Fred Astaire dancing – see what you think of our effort.

No Mean City was the tenth studio album by the Scottish band Nazareth, released in 1979. The album title comes from the 1935 novel No Mean City and features artwork illustrated by Rodney Matthews (above). With this record the band’s sound became much heavier, thanks to the addition of guitarist Zal Cleminson from the Sensational Alex Harvey Band. It sold very well at the time, with the main single Star, preceded by Whatever You Want Babe. The popularity of the album allowed the band to play with several big names such as Thin Lizzy, on their 1978/79 tour.

One of our favourites…

Don’t forget, if you have any music videos you would like us to feature in the future, drop us a line. We are always happy to listen to requests from others, we cannot promise to feature any but we will try our best to find the videos if we think others will enjoy.

  1. Erm. No. Just No.

    In other news my father has said that I am Fat Kryptonite that effects those around me or who may of come into contact with me :roflao: Now to a certain point this could be true. However, Dad was already a chubster before me and Catfish King has always been prone to the rolls of fat he occasionally carries around. So it’s only partly true. :tongue-right:

      1. As we know I never met catfish. He was just prone to the fat gene (plus the large pizza’s he eats to himself) so that one has nothing to do with me!!

  2. How many Jehovah’s Witnesses does it take to change a light bulb?

    Three… one to change the bulb and turn it on and the other two fuckers to knock on your door and ask if you’ve seen the light.

  3. I’ve released the slack in my cable so it won’t flutter as much in the wind and pull on the seismometer. Keeping it still will help as I listen for Marsquakes.
