beat, boogie, bass

my parents are in the process of dejunking their attic and every time i see them i get a box of goodies to go through and keep/trash/charity shop at my own discression. we’ve allready done toys age birth-primary school which was pretty good fun (i kept a couple of much loved fisher price delights including the all time classic fisher price record player) but now we are on to books…
i got two boxes from my dad this weekend…

first box: nothing special – some agatha christie, a jackanory story book and so on.

second box: ohmygoodgod!!!!!!

the first thing i see is my 1989 bros annual, entertainingly defaced by my schoolfriend who hated them on account of being a wet wet wet fan. the annual is a real treasure trove. my favourite absurdity being the page of ‘bros nosh’ – er, yes, recipies like ‘matt’s london pie’….!
if you aren’t aware of the car-crash pop horror that was bros have a look at this video for all you need to know.
oh, how i loved them, oh, how matt made my pre-pubescent heart flutter… honestly, i blame my life-long fixation with effete english girly-boys on him.

once i had picked myself up from rolling around the floor giggling hysterically at the combination of old pictures of matt goss and 9 year old graffiti like ‘craig is a miniman’ i ventured into the rest of the box…

jackie annuals, mandy annuals, it goes on and on….

i may be gone some time πŸ™‚

  1. i know!!!!!

    i feel now is the right moment to quote my faourite/the worst ever bros lyric:

    Well you’ve read Karl Marx
    And you’ve taught yourself to dance

    i love that it’s supposed to be a ryhming couplet – as though if he sings ‘daahnse’ like chris de burgh it will somehow miraculously ryhme with ‘marx’

  2. There’s plennnnnnnnty more where that came from. There are things lurking in my attic that would give Freddy Kruger the heebie geebies. Are you brave enough to go there?
