Are you XS Relocats doing the Drakes gig with us on Feb 4 ?

Wow thats weird,you have got a list comprising the record collections owned by my pal Bill ,who is keen to be a vocalist in the new band,and myself.I quite liked the Regents, I had A 7" of See you later .I saw Jayne County once,quite a spectacle,a bit like Divine,and Bill once put a choke hold on Bob Geldov,ahh...those were the days.

The band have yet to get back to me ,but for now ,yes,we will do the gig.It will be interesting to hear your opinion,as so far nobody seems able to pinpoint who we sound like .or tell us if we are wasting our time or not,but thats always the way when you write music to please yourselves,and don't give a fuck about the media circus.

Josephine are at Drummonds on the 30th Jan,they're ACE,Goldfrapps Black cherry is pretty neat tae.

oh yeh, most Betamax films did indeed include gratuitous 'quan-tities of titties' and ultra violence

the format was the choice of the discerning specialist bootleggers specialising in banned films, snuff and hardcore because of its superior picture and sound quality and smaller size making mail order more cost effective.....meanwhile the public took to the ridiculous VHS format, obviously preffering fuzzy vision and wobbly sound to view their stupid 'Honey Ive Spunked the Kids' and 'Die Hard - Penis' videos...

yeah VHS is shit, we had a betamax video in 1834 at home and it was ace, we had them at school as well till some clueless neds went and nicked them and they were promptly replaced with the rather inferior VHS.

our school had a Sinclair C5 Electric car but some Skinheads kicked it in

it was never replaced

i know, whats it called star trax (how late 70's/early 80's is that???), its a really bizarre mix with the likes of billy ocean and the gibson sitting alongside sparks and the regents.

as long as its being looked after!!! how did it play by the way, i never asked you, cos when i played it, it was scratched to fuck but that could be my cheap 50 quid bush record player. me amp has blown up anyway so i can't play records, bah!!!!

i think every household should own a copy of that star trax album.

Wasn't there a song "small wonder, small wonder" or something sounding like that?? "

And you may know...who sings the song with lyrics that sorta go...

"......nothing to do, I'm so lonely how about you, I got something that you can do..rape me take me" or something like that....can't remember as I ain't heard the song in yeears, but its a classic..

argh..loads more classics in my head that I can't remember words for....can't really write out the tune I'm humming in my head! :D

find out that "could be me" song though...I've heard a cover of it by a crusty punk band before...made me laugh

and what was it used for? i remember seeing some twat driving one and it was the most ridiculous thing i'd ever seen, if i had been driving at the time, the temptation to run over the stupid thing would deffo have been there.

incidently been having a bit of a clear out today and found another pre now thats i called music compilation album from 1981 on the much missed ronco label, "Hits Hits Hits" its called.

highlights include....

flashback - imagination

mirror mirror - doller

falling in love again - the techno twins

throwing my baby out with the bathwater - tenpole tudor

ay ay ay moosey - modern romance

a wonderful time up there - alvin stardust

hold me - BA Robertson & Maggie Bell

to save the day though it does feature the human league, simple minds when they were good, Japan and The Fun Boy Three

yeah i'm with you there, but when i played it the fucker kept sticking, crackles are good but its annoying when the buggers stick, would make a good sample though if i had the equipment (or indeed a working amp).

i actually own a gibson brothers album....

dunno why they had it, but it lived in the science block where only the brainy kids went....so the skinheads broke in and wrecked it as a statement against elitism in the eduction system no doubt

..personally I think they (the C5 not Skinheads) were the future that never happened ...just like Space 1999, Food Pills, Robots that cleaned up the house and the 3 day week

we were cheated

bastards
