I love this lot.
Went to see these last week, I love the way they walk a tightrope between exuberance and being two drunken Glaswegians (yes I know they don't come from Glasgow).

Kirsty McColl, this spoke to me more directly when Billy Bragg sang it, but Kirsty's version is better. Died tragically young but I always thought it a good way to go. She'd just surfaced from a dive with her young sons. That time when you've just come up gasping for breath between the waves is quite magical, resting after the exertion, so much to share about what has just happened and floating in a sort of timeless way.
Just been listening to New Order - Blue Monday
If you can't say it in three minutes. it's not worth saying
Sorry @Spiritwalkerness 'cos I know you don't like The The!
Oh my, another one! Fabulous memories of my leaving do from work, pre entering teaching, the YTS boy serenading me.
I loved Kirsty's "He's On The Beach". Sob.
I want her version of Days played at my funeral.
I haven't 'liked' your post because of your upcoming funeral btw xena-w
Yer just mean!
I loved these albums
This wasn't on an album but I had it on one of those NME tapes
I'll get over it, honest.
I, in my youthful way, thought this was an actual real-life prophecy
Loved Scritti Pollitti, also Prefab Sprout. But I'll just leave with:
Just noticed this on the news so thought it would be appropriate on this thread.
Fine Young Cannibals were fantastic. Saw Roland Gift with Jools Holland last year - danced and yelled my head off!
@Mangleworzle - Proclaimers and Kirsty are in my top list of favourite singers EVER. I love "Letter From America", it's so sad. They're from Leith, the twins, which is where we lived before we moved to the "Kingdom of Fife" last year. :- ) They support the same team (Hibs) as my husband and he'd regularly see them at matches. This is my current favourite song by them, the result of a very long road trip from Fife to Felixstowe (stopping at Scunthorpe and Dorset along the way. If I never see the inside of a car again...)
Anyhoo - I like this. 1987.
"Throw the 'R' Away"
@GLsghost: I remember seeing the Family, with gargling Roger Chapman, at the Roundhouse, in Camden, in 71. Great!
Love Marc Almond! Saw him (not as Soft Cell) lots of times in the 80s.
I lived in St.Andrews for a few months on two occasions in the mid 80's, used to love getting out on my bike, down to Crail, then Anstruther, sometimes to Pittenweem and back again was my favourite route. Happy days
