Thespian. (And retired Two Paddocks ram.)
Ladies and Gentlemen! Two Paddocks proudly presents, here in the Dayglo Disco, on the turntables and occasionally the vibraphone, not just perhaps England's Finest Actor, but also its most persistent! Star of the Potter flicks, Pierrepoint, The King's Speech, The Damned United, most of Tim Burton's films and many of Mike Leigh's and ... and ... oh stuff it ... pretty much half of all movies made since 1980, in fact! As if that wasn't bad enough, he and Mrs Spall are heroically circling Britain in a barge: "At Sea" - 40 lashes if you haven't been watching it on the Beeb ... So here he is, Captain Pugwash himself, the splendid and completely unique Two Paddocks pal ... TIMOTHY SPALL
Tim's choices, from Radio Matilda, with comments from him included.
I love the tune and the lyrics and it reminds me of Sunday lunches when the kids were growing up. Lots of food and we all danced.
No sentimental association with the lyrics, but a beautiful song, beautifully sang, with Bowie's voice at the most resonant. A criminally underestimated
Joni like the wine she sings about is in vintage voice, a ballad about a love lost.
Michael Mc Donald's voice inhabits another great ballad about lost love and the foolish mistakes that lead to the demise of something that was once great and shared.
Sexy, sassy with an irresistible beat, I defy anyone not to dance when it's played. A song about strong independent women saying men should commit to them if they have balls.
Another Bowie classic, which manages to celebrate in a humble way, the desire to triumph.
Makes you think about glorious places, more effective in the pursuit of relaxation than a strong valium.
Jolson after a long gap and ten years in the wilderness, came back to record this, his voice an octave lower, his microphone technic superb, even though sentimental this rendition has never been bettered.
A wonderfully poignant and simple love song, performed by this new band, a mixture of indie rock and rustic English country music. The lead singer's voice is exquisite.
A passionately sung song, obviously personal to this new young song writer. A rites of passage, a journey, painfully experienced, but successfully overcome, I defy you not to dance to it!
