‘The Power Of Love’ – Frankie Goes To Hollywood

The return to school. Had a laugh in the snow, but school had to close at 2.10pm because of the weather. I went down to Jabba’s... record ‘Shitshifters’.


This time 2 years ago:
'I rang Ian Shackleton up in Leeds.'

This time last year:

'Watched The Comic Strip Presents: Susie. Really good.'

  1. ['Shitshifters' is a 'record' based on the 'Ghostbusters' single by Ray Parker Jr. We sang over the top of it in the guise of Brundle Goes To Hollywood. Instead of singing about Busting Ghosts, we sang about Shifting Shit from Barry Brundle's stables. A few weeks after recording it, we decided that we're going to make a movie of it in the summer holidays - Ritcherd, 20th July, 1985]
