*wavy lines wavy lines*

.. I remember our excuse of a band going on the sesh one night with these lads in '91 in Cannock (we were their support act) and one of them doing a wee in a shop doorway. It's the small details in story telling that are always important. They were a good laugh from memory. I've always liked this song.


edit: me at that time or thereabouts ... I was young and didn't need the money!

Back when all this was fields, I'd pay just ten quid to rave at dodgy parties with The Prodigy, Baby D and Slipmat and Lime (aka SL2) at 'Shelly's' in Stoke on Trent all live on stage and stuff ..

Just getting this stuck tune out of my head. No idea how it got in. Don't really like it much. I have been listening to a lot of commercial FM recently in the car, so it likely snuck in there.

It does always bewilder me that I live near and often walk through the place where Lewis Carroll lived and worked...okay, Charles Dodgson. But still...LEWIS CARROLL...Alice in bloody wonderland. Here, where I live!
I never have, but should I wish to, this is clearly the song to listen to whilst taking some kind of hallucinogenic on a summer's afternoon...
I live near here as well, apparently...
Oxford is beautiful, give or take the odd murder (thanks Colin! x)

first single that I personally bought.
Before that it was the Wombles, Elvis, or people singing about combine harvesters. My dad memorably "helped" with a Blondie single that my mum was very not happy about...

I love both versions and I'm in love with the singer in both versions (but if it boils down to haircuts, Annie all the way)

Rally 'Round the West Indies - even though they are having an interesting time in the cricket! This version because it comes with great archive footage.
