old dumb and kind of pasty


it's young week in contrastpodcastville and yet again i was very lazy about it all and just picked something with young in the title. it's a very good something mind that should have you movin and shakin but i can't help but feel i should've been a bit more imaginative.

bob and marcia - young gifted and black


the more i think about it the more i realise that being young was horrible. mainly because of school which was a terrible ghastly burn the fucker down terror which left me only with a mastery of lying cheating and making ever more ridiculous excuses. penguin modern classics didn't help much either. how are you supposed to be a bright and shining child when you're trying to plow through satre and camus (pronounced came-us obviously - well no one told me...) and holden caulfield is your only saviour? at least there was records.(there WERE records stupid child). loud shouty turn that bloody racket down call that music? it's just a bloody noise records. stiff little fingers records. they were the first band i went to see without my mum and if there's anything great about being a kid it's being able to jump around like an idiot with a few hundred equally sweaty shouty nogoodniks and never want to stop. so i should've picked this...

The beauty of record labels (ie the paper things on records not the rip of merchants in big offices) never ceases to please me and as for sleeves, the SLF one is a classic you barely need to hear the tune, the cover tells you so much.

When I was actually young I was obliged to hate SLF because of a constant dispute with Sally can't-remember-her-surname who was a punk when I was a mod. But I saw them last year and they were fucking superb.

I used to work in the record dept. of a WH Smith and they banned SLF's "Inflammable Material" album from sale. One day we got a letter from head office telling us to remove them from the racks. Same thing happened with PiL's first album for some reason.

maybe they thought the SLF album would do some spooky spontaneous combust thang, lee ;)
