Further Off The Chart 26

Further Off The Chart 26: Demis’s Unravelling Kaftan

A mere three weeks after the close of the dexy – it’s been a busy month, sorry about that – we’re finally back with a bumper fifth birthday Further Off The Chart, our regular round up of tracks we spoke about but couldn’t play in the past ten regular editions of Off The Chart. As a Patreon or Mixcloud Select subscriber you get to hear Demis Roussos trampling over an old mate’s hit, Ronnie Corbett warbling a song written by a pre-fame B.A. Robertson, and the song that made us want to form a Van Halen tribute band. If you’re not backing us, what are you waiting for? Support us on Patreon or Mixcloud Select for all this and much much more!
