the lead singer’s good

January 30, 2009

Me and my best mate Ed (used to have a great quiff – now bald and looks like Ray Wilkins) were always trying to outdo each other by getting into the most obscure bands. We’d usually go through NME or Sounds and pick a name from the gig list at the back and that would be the band we’d be into until we dropped them for the next one. One week Ed decided he was a Crispy Ambulance fan – a band with a name that bad had to be good. He even managed to find one of their records on a market stall. I decided that I’d like Joy Division. I asked another mate who went to loads of gigs if he’d heard of them. Amazingly, he’d not only heard of them he’d seen them supporting Buzzcocks. “Their music’s crap” he proclaimed, “but their lead singer’s good”.

Another light was turned on
