Anyway then there was a loooong walk back into town and semi civilisation, although I did find a Ye olde worlde sweete shoppe whereupon I happened to purchase some sugary comestibles. "A quarter of Kola Kubes my good sir" says I slapping my gloves on the counter and prodding a street urchin with a sharpened stick for good measure. "You have to ask for a hundred grammes now sir" he sayeth unto me. "EU regulations" he continuethetheth. (I'm sorry, I have a mouth ulcer). At any moment I expected there to be a squad of EU officials come bursting through the shopfront SAS stylee and slap me with a fine for daring to not convert my tongue to metric under article 3462, paragraph epsilon 4, subsection 597a. Pockets bulging with a QUARTER of Kola Kubes ...and a pound of mint numbugs I awayed to the bus stop. I discovered that I had three new pockets in my jacket that I'd not discovered before. I wouldn't mind but I've only had it three years. After about an hour and a half of chastising swearing children and sharing sweets with old ladies and waiting for the bus I managed to finally get home to scrape the bugs and leaves off my jacket.
It was like a foriegn country in a way as I stood out like a sore thumb in my suit and it seemed that I spoke in a strange tongue. I asked one lady (who one of those sexy 'horsey' types or was it just I liked her legs in those jodphurs?) anyway I disgress. I asked one lady if "this was Ham lane?" "Is this an aeroplane"? She asked puzzled. Sigh, "no I said is this Ham lane." "Oh yurrrr" she replied. How could someone so attractive and faintly smelling of horse manure be so deaf? I thought.
Anyway here's the music and I'm sorry if this was a little disjointed tonight I've been playing air drums along to the Who whilst typing. We have Tighten Up vol 1 as requested. This is the one I posted last year with the extra tracks. Also I've reposted the best of Desmond Dekker who sadly died a while back.
