“Went up Trevs, borrowd Recs, Went up Gra’s, bort ticket off him’ / “Went in Fred’s in Eveng” / “No Monty Pyfon, Bludy Tom Jones”
How dare I make the comment “Bludy Tom Jones”?!
I must have been unaware of “It’s Not Unusual” at 14, a tune later to become my VERY favourite pop song.
Tom is now, of course, SIR Thomas Jones, knighted by the Queen in 2006.
As for the records I borrowed from Trev, what ticket I bought off of Gra or the events at neighbour Fred’s in the evening, I’m afraid I can’t remember a damned thing!
As regular readers of this blog will concur, also not unusual.
