December 8, 2019

It's seems quite a while since we had an off-topic Sunday, but this one is back with a bang. 

This is the Godfather of Soul, the Hardest Working Man in Showbusiness, Mr Dynamite, Soul Brother Number One, Mr James Brown, live on stag...

And this, good people, is how advertising really should be: two stolen bikes, karate chops, headbutts and train stunts all to be smooth and fragrant. All directed by the award winning Serge Faberge, played by the award winning Serg...

Off-Topic Sunday from our man in Los Angeles...

This particular clip may seem well off topic, but then Sideburn itself is not all race reports, gearbox rebuilds and essays on frames. There’s been Dave Aldana’s leathers, Ornamental C...

Off-topic Sunday. On a Sunday!

There I was listening to one of Billy Childish's many bands' version of You Can't Judge A Book. I love the song, knew it was a Bo Diddley original and I'd heard Bo's version of it, but I had a really t...

Off-topic Sunday on a Saturday.

I heard a version of this song on the excellent free music stream Ichiban Rock n Soul from WFMU and immediately stopped the work I should have been doing and investigated. The first path led me to thi...
