dancin' school


long long ago when i was even shorter than i am right now 11 o'clock would chime i'd be dragged indoors screaming with my dear pal from next door and plonked in front of some gawdawful crap full of foul smug nutcases who couldn't get a proper job blathering on about windows like anybody cared and we didn't all amazingly already have windows of our own who just when it couldn't get any worse and ending it all at four was already looking like a fine option the bastards would sing. hell i still have the nightmares.

just think how it could've been...

the vibrettes - humpty dump
digital underground - the humpty dance

I'm sure that album has a great song by the mighty Rick Jones (Yoffy off of Fingerbobs). Surely the hippest dude ever to present a childrens programme.

I hope that eggy chap remembered to open the round window in the Play School house whenever he'd had a humpty dump.

Great songs, by the way!

Carole Chell was an early doors crush of mine.

Who was the Australian bloke(with his guitar) how did he get on there?

Lionel Morton was the dude you're thinking of Mondo.

I should get out more.

I have, and love, this record. I could listen to "One Potato, Two Potato" all day.

My friend's band did a fantastic cover version of the title track too.
