Balderdash and Claptrap

Project bankrupt part 5678

My early teen years were spent either in Bus Stop records (Bournemouth), where I flicked through the rows of Punk and New Wave vinyl, looking for stuff I coveted, either because I’d heard it already or because I figured it was worth a gamble (based mostly on how rebellious the scrawny band looked in their ‘Fuck authority’ promo shot). I made many prized purchases during those years, several of them (Sex Pistols, Never Mind The Bollocks and PIL, Metal Box) were stolen at some point during later years in shared digs. 

Well, I like imagine the thief is now happily ‘married’ to his cell mate, Billy ‘The Ball Bag’  in a high security prison….. Whilst I am now the happy and proud owner of a limited edition Jamie Reid artwork ‘Liberty’.

It’s taking pride of place in the punk dining room.

Irrelevant. Not a lover or a fighter. I run with scissors. Boil me the bag but thaw before freezing. Last fuel for 134 miles. Liar. Sometimes funny. I don't suffer fools. My words are for my amusement. If you read them great, if you enjoy them, even better..... If you don't like them at all... then you've made my life complete.
