The Jack That House Built

TIME: 11.40pm.


My No.1: ‘The Jack That House Built (Spacebase Mix)’ – Jack ‘N’ Chill


Hey!  Hey!  How goes it, babies?


My gay pen’s running out…


Today’s daywear: ‘Up’ hair (1st time in yonks) + skull/Death t-shirt, et al. 


But there was no Tec today (nor next THAHRSDEE).  I stayed home all day.


And tonite, I went to PETERBORO’ ALONE.  I spent 1 hour ‘n’ 40 minutes in VIRGIN, working out which record to buy from a vast choice that included: any Lorries 12-inch; ‘Downtown’ by The JAMMs; ‘To Drown A Rose’ by Death In June; ‘Rok Da House (Demolition Mix)’ by Beatmasters and Cookie Crew; ‘The Jack That House Built’ by Jack ‘n’ Chill; another version of ‘Tower Of Strength’ by The Mission; ‘Another One Bites The Dust (Purple Haze Mix)’ by Batfish Boys.


So what did I buy? 

‘The Jack That House Built’ 12-inch by JACK ‘N’ CHILL.  I’m listening to it ‘n’ it’s great.  Oh, I also got the 7-inch of ‘Gorgeous’ by GLJ.


A 1930s style space rocket roars into the white sky…


Tomorrow, it’s down to STAN’S.  He wants to do a cover of Sputnik’s ‘Atari Baby’.  I don’t.  Sparx will fly.
