Scepticism and Double Dating

‘Tesla Girls’ – OMD

BMW rang tonight. It seems that Martin and I will be going to see the new Madonna film, Desperately Seeking Susan, tomorrow night (at Wisbech Cinema) with BMW and her best friend Phoebe, before we all go to the skating disco. BMW says I’ve got to fix Martin up with Phoebe. Having never met her, Martin is sceptical!

My No.1: '15 Storey Halo' - ABC


This time 7 years ago:

[At around the end of September 1978, Mum, Jack and me were still living at Aunty Vi’s on Chequerfield Road. Grandma Hall passed on a massive pile of recent Star Wars Weekly comics…

…This was shared between all the boys (myself, Jack, and our cousins: Martin and our Jeff), which I resented because I was actually the only one who liked Star Wars (our Jeff took constant pleasure in telling me how much he hated it and how shit it was) and I’d had to leave all my comics and so on back in Nostall when Mum left Paul in May (I'd also had to stop having new comics)...

…Within days, my cousins were defacing and ripping up their share of the comics, drawing tits and cocks on them and generally treating them with contempt...

…I managed to rescue a few, and my share would keep me happy during the daily chaos, violence and other general terrors of a life shared with four other kids.
