Bullied and Cajoled


‘The Immigrant Song’ – Led Zeppelin

Records to ‘capture’ over the next few years:

‘Get a Life’ 12-inch – Soul II Soul
Watermark (or whatever it’s called) and The Celts by Enya.
Some more Alien Sex Fiend stuff (i.e. ‘Smells Like…’)
(plus all outstanding Sisters Of Mercy records)
Some good anarcho-punk stuff
Some Beatles LPs (i.e. Rubber Soul, etc)
Some Led Zep, Jimi, and Doors LPs, etc.
All outstanding Bowie LPs
A rollicking good King Crimson LP

I’ll think of some more soon, I’m sure of it…



‘E.S.T.’ – Alien Sex Fiend

The family’s on the verge of a lot of trouble again.  Why?  Fucking parents, that’s why.  Freddie’s on at Betty about Jack and me working at the lorry yard, again.  The only way I’d work there again is if the wage was better.  Betty came to see me today and told me I’d be working down there tomorrow and I told her I would not.  We’ve had this conversation before and she never listens to me.  If someone talked to me nicely about it, with love and care, or even asked me then I might feel different but I’m feeling cajoled and bullied.  If they kick me out, then they kick me out.


FESTIVAL with Bill Oddie


And a brilliant film, TIM, with the gorgeous Piper Laurie and the ace Mel Gibson.
