Norwich With Graham

‘Volcane’ – Fields of the Nephilim


Today was another change of scene; temporarily…


I got into Tech, wearing mundane clothes that were nothing special (black jeans ‘n’ jumper, etc), but my hair was good: all thick and backcombed with a brilliant bit hanging over my eyes.


Graham was in Tech, and eventually he conned me into going to NORWICH with him.  I took him up on the offer (he was paying).  The worst thing he could do was show me up.

(– UURF!)



In NORWICH, he acted a plonker, but he was okay.  It wasn’t bad; I just felt embarrassed.  In the Indoor Market Café, I saw a beautiful, purple-clad, black-haired gurl.  She was gorgeous.  I’m sad nothing happened.


Lots of interesting-looking ‘unknown’ records in Norwich…


We went to The (very empty) Bell; looked in all the shops; said ‘hi’ to Johnny Gunn; and then proceeded to get exceedingly willy babbered in a Church porch…


In the porch, we were approached by a large gang of really greasy rockers who gave us tons of cider and champagne.  One of them – Jim – was from Castleford, and we had a good chat, which was ace cos he says I can call in on him for a drink whenever I’m round NORWICH.  Groovy thing is, I was getting preferential treatment over all his mates.  He was a good bloke, with good mates, to say we only just met ‘em.


In The Bell this evening, I saw Tracy, me ol’ mate William’s girlfriend.  Apparently William did a robbery at HERO’S, the burger bar across from The Bell, on NOV 5th and was arrested on NOV 13th.  He went inside for ‘attempted robbery’.  He is living back with his parents now, but under a curfew.  He has to be in before 7pm.  Funny old world, innit?  Disturbing.
