September 11th 1973

“Went to Comet wiv Nig to get speaker – didn’t get it – got a puncture on the way back”

I am curious as to why the reference to ‘speaker’ is in the singular rather than plural. I can’t think, for the life of me, what one speaker would/could have been used for back in our 1973 worlds.

Was it perhaps a replacement for a faulty one?

Whatever, it sounds as if the ride back home on our bikes was fraught with certain difficulty, doubtless resulting in one or both of us having to walk the rest of the journey.

The experiences we went through in the name of Rock & Roll!

  1. Now you mention it, I can remember a fair few trips to Comet back in those days when I didn’t come away with anything – even if I had a few options in mind.
