The Return Of Friday Night Is Rockabilly Night 132


Friday night in the Bagging Area Arms- I've emptied the ash trays in the smoking section (I gave up 7 months ago today folks), put some fresh nuts on the bar, stoked the fire. Gloria's just arrived made up and in her glad rags ready for new employment, Stan's on the door watching out for ne'erdowells. Just need some punters now- my round, who's in?

I've posted Peanuts Wilson's Cast Iron Arm before but I opened up Bob Stanley's Yeah, Yeah, Yeah yesterday and the first page is about that very record so I thought we could open 2014's rockabilly party with it, all the way from the 1950s- thumping rhythm, wild sax, comic voices and violent threats towards men and their intentions re: Peanuts' girl. As Bob says- impossible to get on vinyl but in the age of the internets it's available everywhere, all the time.

I'll have a pint and a large G&T Glo and whatever SA's having. Must say this is a lot tidier than that other place.

Got any wassabi nuts?

Is Wassabi Nuts the follow up to Ubangi Stomp?
Not sure this jukebox is to Glo's taste

Swiss Adam said...

Glo's outside having a fag. Not sure she'll be back next Friday- muttering about the terms and conditions

charity chic said...

No chance of a lock in then?

drew said...

Early days Sa, Dickie may persuade her. Anyhoo, who's for a drink? I have just watched a programme on STV about fucking fishing! It just ended and I thought why the fuck did I watch that I have no interest in fishing or snakeheads taking over the waterways of the USA.

I fear I may be losing it

Def time for more drink if Drew's been distracted by angling.

drew said...

Only problem being, I've run out of drinks that I like!

Swiss Adam said...

Desperate times on a Friday night.

charity chic said...

As long as Drew does not get his tackle out!

drew said...

btw, don't buy a Jambox, looks good but shit, no volume what so ever.

Tackle kept inside new Bawbag tackle covers CC with no intention to expose but after a few drinks, well you never know.

Luca said...

Got any Italian wine? If not, I've got a lot of Roero Arneis left after New Year's Eve..

drew said...

i'll have some of that Luca.

Luca said...

*pours*

drew said...

Salute.

Luca said...

..and slices of Panettone for everyone with a glass of Moscato d'Asti?

Luca said...

I've got the tavernetta's pantry full of food, wine and beer. I really need to empty it a bit, you see.. Btw, congrats to SA for having not smoked for all this time and say hello to Glo for me.

Well I never did ..
What a luvverly spot and no mistake. (I'll not be wiping my cock on the curtains here).
As long as davy is being so selfish, I'll cosy on down with you fine folk. Mulled cider is bubbling in the copper bottomed pan for the southerners.

I've had a word with Glo - she'll be grand. She doesn't play hard-to-get for long! (Told her she looked a million dollars in aqua-marine leopard print and that drew would buy her a Brandy & Babycham and some Scampi Fries).

Swiss Adam said...

Mulled cider? Does such a thing exist?
