  3. Paco Rabanne was the after shave of choice for Soul Boys in the 80s, at least 'round London way.

    Up north it was probably Dettol and Woodbines.

  8. Lee is right. One of my 80’s girlfriends insisted I wore Paco Rabanne even though it set my asthma off. I met her on one of these nights... and they always seemed to finish with Fat Larry's Zoom.

  15. Just came across your blog (yes, it's "my first time here", be gentle with me...) - nice to see someone else loves Sugar as much as D-Train! I will be back.

    I happened here while searching for the Charlie May mix of Elizabeth Fraser's 'Underwater' - which you posted in August:

    Any chance of a repost? I heard it in a mix and it's been doing my head in for weeks.

    cheers, Ben

  16. Thanks Ben and welcome. Yep, I've uploaded the track again for you here. Not sure if it's the mix you heard, but it's bloomin' marvellous in any case...

  17. Thanks very much Davy! It's not the mix I heard, in fact I've tracked down a mix that sounds much like the one I heard.
    Full mix here:

    'Underwater' excerpt here:

    It's mixed by Charlie May who is half of Spooky and does lots of work with Sasha.

  18. Aftershave cologne, more than just a good smell

    To shave is not enough, in fact, you need to take some really good care of your skin, and that is precisely what I want you to consider from now on, because I believe that every man has got to look good, right now we are living in a time in which appearances are hugely important, and that is just why you need to look better than your best, and do not worry, it is something really obtainable, you might just need a little bit of guidance into it, and trust me, you will not only look better, you will feel better about yourself and people will let you know.

    What I want you to implement, is some aftershave cologne to your everyday shaving routine, this is a great thing to do, since it can only bring great benefits, for example, a good aftershave cologne is very much used because it cleans your skin from impurities, so when you shave and cut your face you are not going to develop an infection and much less will you be developing such awful reactions as skin rashes after because of the shave. Another great feature of the aftershave cologne is that it has substances specifically made so that you can get a much softer and healthier skin, because as you might know, there is nothing but incredible results that you are going to be getting, so use this amazing implement, it can only better your shaving experience, not to mention that an aftershave cologne will always remain in an incredible scent that women also love to smell on their men.

    Get with what is fashionable, and do yourself a huge favor, a aftershave cologne is something that you really don’t want to be missing, it is an incredible additament that will let you have a great feeling and that will also make you feel like you are looking great, and trust me, you will. http://www.bestaftershaveformen.com

  19. I have to say Charles J really nailed it for me. Such insight!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Oh shit yeah, that dude knows his stuff (er, what is an 'additament'?).

    ReplyDelete
  21. Well obviously based on the Latin additamentum, from additus, p. p. of addere to add.
