Oh Louie, Louie - Louie, Louie, Louie, Louie Donowa.

I remember that goal like yesterday.

Regular readers of this forum may have noticed I have a frequent tendency to go off at a tangent: this post is no different 😀....

We all know the tune to the Louie, Louie song you mention - we sang it recently for Tammy, Tammy Abraham; a few years ago for Winky, Winky Wanderers and even, for those cricket fans amongst us, for Linky, Linky Lancashire - but, without looking it up, can anybody remember the title of the original song?

I actually bought the original record - a 45rpm disc - but does anybody know/recall the song title and the name of the group?

No doubt our more senior fellow forum members such as @slartibartfast etc. will know, but I wonder whether the younger ones know - or even care 😄.   

If anybody feels inclined to respond positively, please do so but try and refrain for the moment from revealing the answer, but I am intrigued.

One of my fave away days, rolled up pissed out of a taxi (@Harry will testify!), on the fencing for each of the goals, lots of pisstaking in Bath afterwards, a top eve!

Ha ha. Yes mate, I remember that, you belter!! 
Sadly I wasn’t able to enjoy the evening in Bath afterwards. I got arrested when we were 3-1 up and carted off to the station. 
When released at about 8pm, I got the Badgerline bus back to Longwell. I was singing “we beat the Rovers 3-1” all the way home on the bus and was getting some funny looks. Twas only when I got off the bus and met some mates in the Crown at Longwell that they told me we’d won 4-2!! 😂😂

I’m sure it was the same night that we ended up at my mates at 4am watching the Bruno-Tyson fight. 
I must’ve been absolutely wrecked that night!!!

Correct.

I only posted, as I recall asking the same question of some of my young nephews/nieces a few years ago, none of whom were able to identify the song or, perhaps more understandably, the group.

It was first sung I recall about Frank Worthington back in the day.. Leicester fans singing Frankie Frankie Worthington and the East End drowning it out with wanky wanky Worthington

Their name sounds like the sort ailment one might pick up after cavorting with ladies of ill-repute although I believe it was something to do with Camp Coffee (possible sponsors for the gas - if it even still exists?)

I'm ashamed to say that was the first single that I ever bought!

Sorry, nothing to do with the thread!

Hate to be a pedant but 'Disco' Slarti wouldn't allow me to bypass this.

Whilst Chicory Tip had the hit that was a cover, it was written and first recorded by Giorgio Moroder.

Everybody knows the chorus but the lyrics are something else .

Not that I doubted you 😉, but I had to look it up to check, as my wife has always been a big fan of GM's music - I had always assumed he was German, but I have now discovered he was Italian (born in that German speaking area of South Tyrol).

Every day is a school day....

It was also the first hit record to employ the use of the Moog Synthesizer !

And no, I haven't just googled it..................it's one of the many useless facts whirring around inside my cranium .  😎

I have no idea, of course, but I can only think you must be under about 30 years of age...? 

It's very easy to mistake Rovers for the shambolic, embarrassing, joke of a club that we see today and think they are just a little figment of fun, there to keep us amused as an aside to whatever we are doing.... 

Those that remember them as a rival however, will/should never forget what a vile, rancid, cesspit of scum actually lurks over there. 

The absolute definition of "little man syndrome" who'd rather drink each others piss than help us if we were burning infront of them.

Untterly vile club, whose supporters turn into mouth foaming, neanderthals at the very thought of any game that might possibly attract more than 8/9000 fans to it and their hatred of us goes beyond anything you might see in many other places. 

It's the 1 reason I'd actually entertain another Bristol Derby, so that those young enough to only think of Rovers as a jovial laughing stock, get to actually see the grotesque underbelly of what they've only ever seen from a distance. 

For many, who remember them from 20+ years ago, their troubles are a delight to behold and they couldn't happen to a more fu###d up bunch of spawn. 

Their kit, their dirge of a song, their inferiority complex, their inbred, bitter, deluded interpretation of who/what they are, makes every moment they struggle, a real pleasure..! 

 

Those are the exact reasons us older generation utterly detest that pathetic shambles of a football club and all the crap they continue to spout.  I still hate them now as much as i hated them in the 80's and 90's.

Amen Richy.

When that filth blocked a council plan to save City in 1982, a club that I didn't like became a club that I utterly despise and always will, just to get their shitty mitts on our stadium.

Going bust isn't good enough for them, I want a very long and painful end for them.

They wanted us to die so I want the same for that club and always will.

When you listen to the opening, driving chords on the keyboard riff you realise it seems obvious.....

naff all to do with the thread but the Kentucky church scene great music gives you the feeling like city winning with the last kick of the match.

The three guitars going for it, freebird, by Lynyrd skynyrd. Bear outro ever. Class scene and I know what you mean about great feeling after winning.

Old but gold.

haha. I can't see it. Why would Matty go to a club failing in the championship once again. The Teds who would love it just for the reaction are kidding themselves - they are a sh1te championship side..


No way would we sell our players to them.

They'll be spitting feathers this morning when the Mansion Bet "There's only one team in Bristol " leaflet drops out from the weekend Bristol Post!

 

The more I hear about Mansion... the more I like them.  Just a shame it involves gambling. 

They should start another company, maybe....

Mansion Pots

 

(Mansion Pissing off the sags.)

 

They're very good at that.
