spring has sprung


it's cold and damp and a bit horrid and i think we saw ball lightening last night just next to centrepoint (well it was that or space aliens) but it's spring. spring people! in no time we'll be reveling in the joy of smoky boozers but this time outside and i'll be panicking cos all my favourite clothes are wooly and it looks like it's going to be chipshop lee who'll be uptown and top ranking and parading his althea and donna prize triumphantly unless anyone else gets it together double quick. to get you all proper excited and revved up for tomorrows prize giving and celebrations let's go back to the where they got the tune from classic and the studio one soul sensation mr alton ellis. jeez the man can sing.

That's a damn good tune; I've not heard that in years. Good stuff for a Monday!

It was probably the alien ships landing to pick up some of the "revellers" from bar 101 at the base of CP, i've been to some places in my time but the patrons there were the strangest collection I've seen in while, the odd tentacle and extra eye wouldn't get noticed! :)

I thought of you tonight Miss Ally because me and Mrs H. watched this and it was bloody good. I'm sure they'll have it on the iPlayer thingy. Call me an ignoramus ("Dave, you're an ignoramus") but I didn't know Marty Feldman wrote the Julian & Sandys (with Barry Took)...I expect you did because you know stuff x

Hey, version excursion! Are we going to get Trinity as well? Go on.

Alton has a lovely set of pipes. Do you know 'Confusion' with it's odd galloping rhythm? I've still got the dusty seven that I got out of a cardboard box in the local sweetshop in 1980. If I ever get my lazy arse together to get a new record deck, you can have an mp3.
