I recall seeing Ian Dury on Rock Goes to College when I was still at primary school. He had plastic fish bones & stuff hanging off him & I was so impressed I attempted to pierce my ear with a safety pin. Rebellion! Produced lots of blood which went on the sofa & I got a good clip round the ear.

Much earlier on my mum was very keen on the carpenters. For a long time they were pretty much forgotten, although they've been re-appraised nowadays & heard quite often. But I heard them for the 1st time in a long time maybe 10 years ago, it was like a gust of air from 1970s passing over me - for a second or two I was there..

Also clearly remember the older kids in the house next door having the who's Tommy. I'd have been about 5 at the time. Not the greatest who album but nevertheless my fave.
