Shangri La

It's that time of year: the Medds are on tour. We're heading South by South West for a few days to catch the last of the rays, prop up a few bars and generally slip anchor. The location? That would be telling. Though if you Googled Shangri La you'd be getting warm.

Clock the video below for a very young looking Neil Innes; twenty years later he would put his Ron Nasty wig on, dust down this song and give it a Rutles makeover. And how's this for serendipity - when we get back, as soon as we've have unpacked the suitcases, it'll be straight out again for a night of Short Stories And Tall Songs with the man himself.

See you on the other side.


  1. Have a good one J. Is it somewhere near sea tractors and detective hotels. On the subject of Shangri La stick this, next to the tin of travel sweets, if it's not too late. It's like Atomic era Blondie for the Now Wave crowd
