Were you wearing a cardigan at the time?
Yes, and a BMX Bandits badge.And I was sucking a lollipop.
I once bought a Beat Happening album from Stephen Pastel and shuffled my feet awkwardly until he felt obliged to say something about it. Not nearly as impressive as your one, but more underachieving.
A while ago on the radio Tom Robinson said that the previous night he'd been to see some super-flowery under-the-radar tragic indie band with Steve Lamacq.He challenged listeners to come up with an even more indie sentence.I think Tim may have managed that here with bells on.
I suspect you might have edged me out there Chris, not just for the underachievement, but because the transaction occurred (presumably) in Glasgow.Hello Spinny, sweetie. Mmm yes, Tom Robinson. I mean, Small Boo once gave a demo tape to Steve Lamacq, which is surely more indie in itself than going to see a band with him.
I'm Eastern Counties Division in this particular Premiership, although I did once get Mungo Jerry's Autograph. He'd just released "Indie Summertime".*gets coat*
Billy & I got a tad excited at the weekend when we saw "the book" in Virgin, Oxford Street!! "Ooh-ooh-look! It's Tim!" etc.
TimWhen you gonna get a proper job!!!Very entertaining thoughJulian Dean-hows your memory
No, Murph, I'll get your coat for you. Still, he did have great buggery grips did that Mungo.Llewtrah: because I haven't been back to Blighty (or anywhere much) since publication, I still haven't actually seen the book in a real shop. Did you hear about Stephen King autographing some of his own titles in a shop in Oz? They thought he was a drunk vandal, and called the police.Proper job, Julian? The only thing our mutual place of learning equipped anyone for was sailing around in a bloody tea clipper. Trust you're well, old chap.
Not at all indie-related this, but current Reading manager, ex Liverpool, Man Utd. and England player Steve "Stevie" Coppell once kicked a ball back into play for me during a 5-a-side tournament. Then we got chatting, you know, like you do; exchanged a couple of words. "Thanks, Steve", most probably.Nifty little player, wasn't he? He would have looked the part in an indie band too, I'll warrant. You know, handing out leaflets wearing a parka and so on. He had hair back then, obviously. Whereas Lou Macari...L.U.V. on ya,Bob
I always saw Joe Jordan and Gordon McQueen as a the Moon and Entwistle of mid-70s footie.
Thanks for using my poster for illustrating this post. I actually did one for our Beat Happening special earlier this yearhttp://sotoughsocute.blogspot.com/2009/03/so-cute-beat-happening-special-28-mars.html//D
