Shag Tobacco – Gavin Friday
Mid-90's release that finds the former Virgin Prune on altogether more accessible form. There's some Bowie, Scott, Brecht and 80's pop influence and a rather decent cover of Bolan's The Slider - it really is a top notch album. Hilites for me are probably You Me & World War Three and Mt 20th Century which includes a great moment when Friday sings
“I once believed in Jesus
Now I can't believe in rock 'n' roll”
but really...it's all great.

Watched England Is Mine...
As someone who has bought, shall we say, the odd Smiths/Moz record, I must admit I was a bit unsure whether I wanted to see the England Is Mine film or not. Sure I was interested in the subject but the reviews were pretty mixed and I thought I would hate it but...I've but gotta say I enjoyed it - it's an enjoyable account of a moody, introspective, creative but self-centred young man finding his feet in life. I don't remember anyone our age drinking beer from bottles back in the 70's though. It was either from a glass or a can round here (Party Seven!!) x
