    2019 Headliners

    They did Last Night. And.... err.... some other songs?

    Yeah, it's a historical artefact more than an overview of their career.

    And if you're interested in the making of the mythos of the band, you've got to include the Hunter Davies book, originally from 1968 (but updated several times since) - The Beatles: The Authorised Biography . Whilst not the best biography, it's such an early writeup of the band, it's fed into pretty much every book on them since.

    Truth.

    I think Alexis has improved his love vocals since then. They were on fire all through 2015, so any set from then. Like this one:

    And if a suitably baggy Australian act turns up, I may well do that But I can't think of any.

    Ah shit, Get Back was credited to "The Beatles with Billy Preston" - does that invalidate his claim to be a Beatle on that track, since we would be double accounting? Time to start writing on my calculator!

    If we're talking about their recorded output, there's someone far more eligible than those - Yoko Ono. Which kinda proves we're scraping the barrel. I have to agree though, George Martin aside, Billy Preston probably has the strongest claim to being the 5th Beatle. No other musician has played on so many Beatles songs outside of the core quartet and their producer. I don't count the Hamburg days since although Stu Sutcliffe was actually an official member of the band, they weren't recording music. And he wasn't very good apparently. Hmm, I feel I need to mathematically quantify the importance of appearing on record vs featuring on a live recording. I guess Eric Clapton is probably 0.000000001 of a Beatle. Should I divide the number of recorded appearances by the total number of tracks recorded by the band?

    Me too, but I feel sunshine whenever I hear these acts. Look at the hand in the air on this (badly shot) video: They played in 2017 in WG and it was rubbish in comparison.

    They seem perfect for The Park to me, like Jagwar Ma. I keep trying to get the "Australian band influenced by early nineties UK dance music" slot going as a thing, stick Confidence Man on the same slot. I don't think I'm having much success

    Actual musical contribution to the band. They didn't let George record many songs, so he gets a low score. Sorry George, playing guitar over someone else's songs only gets you so far. Lennon and McCartney were very good, after all.

    Sounds very Dirk Gently.
