Some classic synthpop to reboot the blog


Did you know that after Sailor George Kajanus went all Buggles on us and made some great synthpop? Listen to this:

Data - Fever of Love (1981)

My comparison doesn't do it justice. It is Buggles-ish but much better.

Well you wouldn't mind picking that up for 50p in your local Help The Aged/Save The Children high street emporium would you.
Unmistakeably George...A Buggled Sailor.

I wonder what Elaine thinks!!!

Mick said...

This actually cost me less than 50p. Who is Elaine?

BrotheRay said...

I'm not one tell tales...I'll let him tell you.

davyh said...

And about bloody time. "Intermission"? Sheesh.

Sounds like a bleepy 'We Built This City On Rock And Roll'. But I'm just glad you're back.

Much has happened while you have been away. Elaine craves Data. She adores everything they ever put on vinyl plus all the rare promo-only and dj remix service versions. Brill band/duo. What a totally shagtastic comeback, Mick. Author! Author!

Mick said...

So it's a buggled sailor, a brill band or a portent of the worst record ever. Over to Fwank Muir's team to decide who's telling the truth and who's bluffing.

BrotheRay said...

Well,I'm with Elaine.

It's been a while. You've lost weight. Have you been drinking too much? How's yer ma keeping? Looking forward to Spring eh.

Aka ...
where the fuck have you been?

Mick said...

Yes it has.
No I haven't.
Yes.
Very well thank you.
Yes.
Been concentrating on my football management career.

dickvandyke said...

England? Wolves? Leeds?
More vacancies than the whole of the UK manufacturing industry.

Mick said...

England? I'll let 'arry fail at that. Wolves? I think they've had enough of Micks. Leeds? I still have some pride. I'm sticking to the The Mighty Atoms - up to 14th even after a disastrous 32-point deduction.

dickvandyke said...

I see Rangers have followed the Peter Ridsdale method of FC auditing. (There's a joke in these parts about missing Jew Diligance).

What was the 32 point deduction all about? Been following Tevez, Suarez and JT recently?

BrotheRay said...

The 32 point deduction was his own stupid fault (drunk?)...he fails also to mention Rayders who are 3rd and bearing down on the leaders.

dickvandyke said...

I've noticed, Brother Raymond. Rising like a salmon on the back stick. It's all about peaking at the right time. Am finding it all a bit tedious now though - with too many weeks off to keep the momentum going.

And between us, the top 4 probably only pick about 20 different players and then hope for some luck with the captain's armband. As Arthur Ellis used to say, 'He's played the Joker, double it up to 10' (Ask Mick. He'll remember Arthur!)

darkdance said...

Don't you brats have telephones?

BrotheRay said...

Yes dick-v-d,I think from here on it's all about who gets injured/suspended and who we replace them with.
and Mick,he's just the AVB of the league...lost the dressing room,lost the plot and lost the front door key.

Sorry dark,you feel out of it...how's the Racoon hunting season going.

Mick said...

Time to set the record straight. I made eight changes with the intention of using my wildcard but someting went wrong and I lost 32 points and plummeted to the bottom of the table (alcohol may have been involved). Take a look at my record since November and you'll see how I slowly climbed the table. Number one in December in fact and above Rayders and Barnstoneworth in Jan!! Rayders have done very well since they stole my team. Fact!

PS Also still in the cup in Gameweek 26

dickvandyke said...

Vehement protestations aside, it's a marathon, not a sprint Brian.

Not sure I understand that Wildcard thing. 'Though I may try and use it come the crucial busy Easter weekend. Stealing/copying your bro's team - if it were true -is tantamount to burglary with menace.

Tinkerman inspiration is as rare as a 1-5 WBA away win.

And it's a good job Leeds had some points in the bag early season, as their form is now relegation fodder.

My sources tell me that new manager may well be announced imminently.

BrotheRay said...

Let's set the record straight...I never look at other peoples teams when selecting my own...fact.
Any similarities were purely coincidental.

Well,dick...I see you have your new manager...hee,hee,hee.

Mick said...

Don't worry DVD. He'll get you into the Prem for the 2013/14 season and then find he's out of his depth.

Mick said...

..and then Mark Hughes willk take over and you'll be relegated anyway.
