Gloria's Choice


I said to him, 'You need some decent bloody music round here and a bit less of all this Damian Albran crap and the reggy' (not that I mind a bit of reggy now and then if it has a good beat but I will NOT tolerate the funny cigarettes, not after the business with our Darren who's even now never off his arse and that bloody gameboy, the useless sod) and what does Mr High And Mighty say but "Alright then Glo, YOU choose the music for Friday" like he's doing me a big bloody favour all of a sudden, so here I go. And you can spare us your sarky backchat Van Dyke, I knew your mother when she'd nobbut two bob to rub together for a pair of bloody knickers.

This is for my Norman, God rest his soul.

Les Paul & Mary Ford - 'Goodnight Irene' (1965)

  5. I am sorry that the music is not to some folks liking. Perhaps if I ask one of the lads down the works to put a drill over it it will appeal more to the bloody TECHNO RAVERS

  6. PS: I shall be glad to serve that young man Adam and his young lady with the wafers, a very nice young couple

  9. The weather hasn't made the news yet but as it has now hit London, I expect we will now have a running commentary with newsflashes each hour.

    1. SoHo and the Village. Thompson St. Sanctuary T if you fancy a cuppa in the afternoon in a small, friendly place - or cocktails and tapas early evening. If it's raining, Chelsea Market - lovely food places, cafes and vintage malarky. But there's so much. Give it a big HEART from me, lucky girl x

    1. Thanks Drew, I'll give that a listen. You may have missed it whilst in Belfast but, inspired by you, I've been listening to Koreless this week. S'alright, yeah. "Open up your eyes an' ears an' yer influenced an' there's nothing you can do about it".

  13. By eck. Things've gone downhill round here and no mistake. Time was when a barmaid served drinks, polished glasses and kept her own counsel.

    *Whispers* Blimey, you don't think she 'eard me do you?

    Still, this is the best boozer in town; Average age 50 and three quarters. No students or hoodies.

    I saw her skate of a son Darren in Poundland today asking how much things were.

    And my ol' mum was a martyr to her fallopians. Had one of those hystericalectomies. Catching her tits in the mangle didnt help.

    Maybe we can slowly move the easy listenin towards say .. Anthony Newlay for ally, Andy Williams for davy, Matt Monroe for drew, and Rockabobby Big Bollocks & The Churlish for SA.

    Guinness please x

  14. The Churlish are very good. Well, their early stuff was. Signed a major, lost it.

  15. I do love a bit of Andy Williams Dickie - You Know Me So Well as that Barbara Dickson was always saying. I shall fetch you that Guinness sir, yes I shall.

  16. I quite enjoy going into Poundland and asking how much things are.

  17. Just back from the Loch with the family and things ain't got any better. Can we listen to something from this century at least.
    Jesus, you lot are old before your time!

  18. Got a spare vinyl copy of that Koreless ep, if you're interested Mr H. Apparently I pre-ordered both from Piccadilly Records and Young Turks one drunken night months back.

    3. You haven't got the Rockabobby Big Bollocks & The Churlish E.P as well have you?

  19. Blessed are the Churlish.
    Just returned from watching World Cup Rugby League. A packed house to see the Kiwis v The Kumuls. (Good trivia question).
    Tetleys on form.
    Tumblr! Is that the future then drew? Sounds like a dreadful place just outside Uddingston.
    Slow dance with Glo then davy? Erection Section. Close your eyes and You're Almost There!

  20. Rockabobby Big Bollocks and the Churlish don't release on vinyl. Only shellac at 78 beautiful rpms. Real.

    But they do have a Tumblr.
