Even "Rapido" was better....
.......that the primary ingredient is something called "olean" which I have since learned is Latin for "Unwashable & Indestructible Ass Grease."

The TOTP repeats are incredible, each one recherching the auld temps perdu. I was very lucky to gain pop consciousness via TOTP during 78-82, New Wave, Disco, Ian Dury, Soul, 2 Tone, Madness, Adam, Weller, Dexys....

Watching it last night doubled-down on my good fortune, the audience on the stage with the groups, dancing. It's probably why I've never needed any dark or angsty music, my tastes were forged in this crucible of good fun.

The charts have always been 50% shite, always. It's the good stuff that you should be treasuring.

No, I know. I'm only messing, me old plum x

It was a golden time. I watched it last night and it was the boldness of the ideas that struck me. Big splashes of paint, gooning for the cameras, vocalists celebrating their idiosyncracies, taking risks with strange sounds. And this was stuff that was chartbound!

I think elsewhere on BCB you attempted to ridicule me for making exactly this point.


Could have been someone else to be fair.

It was an incredibly fertile time for music.

I attempt to ridicule you - and your clown brother - at every turn.

You give me lots of ammunition, too, 'to be fair'
