I’m so tired – I just had a week off, but because I had to get my bike wheels fixed, I spent most of it worrying about that. Nothing worries me like motorbike maintenance – its a nightmare, I’d rather boil my head! So, it’s time for new tyres, but there’s corrosion on the rims, so they needed powder coating, which means £80 for that £360 for tyres!!! Christ, I bought whole bikes for less than that in the past – also, had to take off the disks and replace the bearings, which isn’t that hard, but can go wrong – it went ok, but now I’m tired.
Anyhow, thank god its over –
I just been listening in the bath to this “Jayda G” DJ Kicks album (on band camp), https://jaydag.bandcamp.com/album/dj-kicks-jayda-g I got to say its a bit unusual, sort of soul funk dance, not heard owt like that of late! I sort of like it – its not my sort of thing, I don’t know how you’d dance to that without losing your shit?
I might buy the album, that one is the opening track.
Nah then, when I was young, I was a fan of the UK Subs, I saw them many times in many places – they were huge in 1980, biggest punk band in the UK – the UK subs is short for Subversive!
My mate liked this one, the way he goes “Go down Piccadilly” He sounds right cockney! It sure is a good song!
Here’s their biggest hit “Teenage”
I took this photo, Singer Charile Harper was posing for the shot, I was standing on a table, taking ages & he yelled down the mic “Come on David Bailey!” (He’s a famous photographer)
I quite like this summer song by Harry Stiles I think – I’m not going to see him live tho, the Subs are coming to Sheffield later this year – still going strong!
