LITTLE VILLAGE - Fool Who Knows (1992)
I missed the series The Village when it first came out earlier this year. (How did I let that slip through the net?)
Thanks to a song on the Singing Bear's 'must check' site Growing up Backwards. I became aware of it. I got hold of the series immediately and thought I would check out the first episode and see what it was like. It was great, just up my street. A gritty period drama. The place, well a little village in England silly. The time was just before and during the first World War.
It was about poverty. survival, the First World War, Shell shock, Social Injustice and of course sex and scandal, just up my ally.
Old Ma and I watched the first episode and then decided to watch episode two. After that we both said together, lets have just one last episode. I got to bed at 02:30 after we had watched the whole series, about 6 hours worth.
Of course you can do that sort of thing when you are retired, well you know yourself!.
Highly recommended and bring on the next series.
This was and ideal excuse for me to introduce what I suppose was a super group called Little Village and was made up of Ry Cooder, Nick Lowe, John Hiatt and Jim Keltner. They released a great self titled one of album, which is worth checking out.
I choose a live take of Fool Who Knows just to let you see the guys in action.
