2006 vintage


Amazing.  Someone has been moved to make use of the same bad pun that I employed two decades previously.  Perhaps the marketing department at Royston Pickles is headed up by a one-time indie kid who bought my fanzine at a Bodines gig and, if nothing else, its title stuck with him or her.

My thanks go out to Tim Hopkins, who not content with being this blog’s chief chutney scout, is also the singing half of the First Division.  Their ‘On the city’ mini-CD has just been released by Cloudberry (‘Downriver’ mp3 here).  Its three songs offer a celebration of London life which manages to be both impassioned and ambivalent – not an easy trick to pull off.  ‘We don’t need espresso round here / everybody’s wired on the fear’ indeed.
