The Winterfood Diaries

Sunday, 10 January 1988




Hello again.  I’ve been away.  I am sorry.  Life hasn’t changed drastically since we last spoke, dear reader.


‘Mother Fist’ – Marc Almond


Today, I dug out tons of Marvel comics to read. 

I also bought a Fantastic Four (with a mutated Thing) and a 2000AD.

You may have noticed that the first record I’ve purchased in 1988 is Dare by The Human League. 

I paid £3.99 for it.  God, it reminds me of ‘82/’83.  Mary Lennox.  Leeds.  Doctor Who in Snakedance.




‘Possession (Live)’ – The Sisters Of Mercy


Tonight, guess what came back?


Aye.  It did.


All Creatures Great And Small – smashing stuff!
