This is what I'm listening to right now. Gloria Walker - tune tune tune.
32 years ago I had someone's electric bass guitar left in my bed-room (I used to record stuff there). I couldn't play bass and didn't particularly fancy playing it.
I had a copy of the first Ramones LP and while listening to it with headphones on, I decided that I could play bass. By the time the LP had ended I had worked out everything Dee Dee was doing and absolutely loved it.
I've just played the LP again and very sloppily done Dee Dee's bits. Absolutely loved it.
Currently playing on a loop in Teresa May's hotel room.
Following on from Jeff's
Off work today for a change but after last night feeling a bit pissed as to where we go from here. Hopefully upwards.
Well, I decided to dig out some stuff that I absolutely loved as a kid.
I remember quite clearly that when I was 10 years old coming home from school and being blown away by the fantastic song on the radio. A song that really impressed me by its basic, no messing around, rough sounding groove. Yes, I was 10.
I've just been listening to Gary Glitter - Rock & Roll Part 2. Followed by a few of his other big hits that I loved way back then.
They still bring back great memories for me and that's what I take - my memories from 45 years ago. Loving music as a kid.
Ok, moving on.
This is just fantastic if you like basic rock n roll (like my life is based on).
I really makes me laugh now when I look back on my youth.
Apparently my young impressionable soul was in danger of being corrupted by the Satanic evils of Punk Rock. Evil twisted men like Johnny Rotten & Joe Strummer were going to pollute me with their poisonous behaviour & destroy my future.
What I needed as an impressionable child was to enjoy safe,wholesome, family entertainment. People who made it their business to set good examples to children.
& if I wanted a bit of lively rock n roll it should be harmless fun.
Funny how things turn out...
For any Beatles fans, from the Sky Arts programme that created a play list of the imagined 'Black Album'. Really enjoyed the show and listening to this playlist.
