Spinsterella Chills

I quite fancy that bloke out of Sparks.

No, not that one. The other one. The one without the weird 'tache.

(I think I possibly had a wee bit too much Red Stripe at the Big Chill.)


  • Fucking hell! You drank booze at the Big Chill? I thought on the annual 'Islington Visits the Countryside' outing you were only allowed to drink organic fair-trade wheatgrass juice.

  • Has the bloke without the tache off of out of that Sparks still got a dodgy perm?

  • The bloke off Sparks who isn't the bloke with the tache looks a bit like Shirley Temple. Or he used to.

  • Did they do "How are you getting home"? One of my fave songs. I used to have it on a (you probably won't remember these Spin) cassette and I always wanted My Pub Band to cover it - if the Big Chill drove you to drink, I dread to think what effect My Pub Band would have had Spinny. You'd have been in with the bassist, mind. (Well, everyone else was...randy old goat that he was/is...) I'll dig out his number if you like (and don't mind sharing him...)

    wrod vrecif: tkunsm. I see the Thai lessons are starting to pay off Spinster...

  • Well...I quite like the one with 'tache. He's ace. I'll have him and you can t'other one.

    This town ain't big enough for the Both. Of. Us.

    Well...it is actually.

  • The b-side to 'This town...' was Barbecutie - save that for your next pub quiz. Great track. I used to like the curly haired one when I saw him on top of The Pops for the first time in the early 70's. He was wearing a white jacket with rolled-up sleeves. Wow - must have been the inspiration for Miami Vice wardrobe come to think of it. I'm not sure I would fancy him now.

  • I'm afraid fancying the other one out of Sparks is only allowed when he is played by

  • No, he doesn't have a permed mullet any more. These days he's like an older version of the singer out of Mercury Rev. (I fancy him too.)

    And Bob, I'm from the cassette generation. I only bought my first CD player a couple of years ago, just as the rest of the world discovered MP3 players.

    I have no idea what songs they played after the first hour or so. Not only was I drinking beer, I was drinking free beer. All the sweeter...

  • They do a reet canny version of I want to hold your hand as well - really OTT, Philly soul sound. Fabulous stuff.

    So tell us more about the free booze Spin - sounds like professional ligger not Spinster behaviour to me. I think there's something you're not telling us here....come on - it's the bass player, isn't it?

  • Professional ligger is right Bob, but it wasn't me. My mate Tom is a shameless blagger, but when he only managed to score one free ticket he didn't want to go by himself.

    So he gave the ticket to me as I don't give that much of a fuck about being alone. Obviously.
