BROTHERS BEYOND: As part of the ongoing launch celebrations of the website, Keane have recorded a cover version of the Walker Brother's The Sun Aint Gonna Shine Anymore. Our overiding memory of this song is when it turned up on Dave Lee Travis' Golden Oldie Picture Show, a cheap bit of work the BBC used to trot out making 'pop videos for records that predated the pop video.' When TSAGSA turned up, DLT got all teary about the clip that had been made "as it features an interpretation of the song that just wouldn't have been possible when the song was first released." On came the clip, which placed the song in a post-nuclear war zone. So, DLT thinks that there was no paranoia and fear about impending nuclear war in the mid 1960s, apparently.
