The Man with the foolish grin is keeping perfectly still...
Well...bugger me with a broom handle and call me delilah....we seem to have a bird of prey hovering round the roof of Piddy towers...something called a kitty hawk, sparrow hawk...something like that so the twitchers tell me...I seem to be the only one who hasn't seen it and its perching on my railings somewhere....at the earliest opportunity my camera lens will be up its arse and a photo will be taken as quick as you can say hello jemima...
I see the pope is up to his Gay PR tricks again...can't he find someone else to hate...just because he has a personal homophobic problem, why should the millions of catholics on the earth be subjected to the same...I wish he would look towards the future and not dwell in the distant past...what a wanker (and still a cunt..as in previous posts)
Now you know you can rely on me musically...well theres a couple of albums worth a mention this week...first one is from Peter Grant called 'New Vintage'..an amazing 19 year old guy who has a crooners voice to die for, the great thing is that he manages to produce an album which is very cool indeed and very sparse on the cheese...well any album that opens with Scott Walkers Joanna (actually written by Tony Hatch and Jackie Trent) can't be bad...really, really go and find it and listen to it...so fucking jealous of his voice, if only i had been allowed to go to stage school ! :)
The second album is by Susie and Sam (its actually ex Bangle Susannah Hoff and indie darling Matthew Sweet) called 'Under the Covers Vol 1'...this is one of those albums that you can play over and over and not get bored of...it is simply a collection of their favourite 60's and 70's songs as In Velvet Undergrounds 'Sunday Morning' and Beach Boys 'Warmth of the Sun'...its a great listen and the two voices meld together really well into 45ish minutes of nostalgic acid pop...another one to explore.
I am off to the pub tonight and thought I would just give them a shout out...if you want to see the whole of the Piddys Place writing team in drinking action you need to visit 'The Wellington' in Wellington Street Bedford...a great selection of real ales and no annoying music, but it still manages to get vocally raucous somehow!
