Dang. I was in Knoxville when they played on that tour and could easily have gone to see them.

Instead of sitting at home and playing XTC and Joy Division records, I mean.

To be fair to young me, I was shaken by an incident seeing the Who in Brighton weeks earlier when the crowd surged forward several times and risked crushing some of us, including a young woman I pulled up from the ground.





Yes, the power of crowds is very disturbing.

Asda's clothing franchise George had a very nice lingerie set for just this purpose in 2008. I got two sets in different sizes after considerable shopping in several branches.

Neither was purchased for wearing myself.

I'm nationwide.

Well, I was.

Not on English Lit, American politics, rock music...






The Robert Johnson albums are a cornerstone of my collection, as such so firmly established in my formative listening experience I don't go to them very often.

Fantastic! A double set of terrific albums.

Wonderful evening - great company.

To absent friends - this one was for Reap.

But February made me shiver
With every paper I'd deliver
Bad news on the doorstep
I couldn't take one more step
