Forty Four


It's my birthday today. I am forty four. This is a song pulled more or less at random from my downloads folder- Rocket by The Jesus and Mary Chain, a b-side from the Crackin' Up single in 1998. Having ruminated since the middle of last week I've decided I'm definitely up for the Psychocandy gig in November. It's hard to believe they were Smash Hits cover stars- 'loud, spotty and weird'. There's a good line up in that issue- The Smiths, Billy Bragg, the Bangles. Five Star. And a pull out poster of Samantha Fox.

... and one of Queen, shockingly enough!

Happy Birthday, mate!

btw: I always thought 'Rocket' is one of their finest moments! Great choice!

Happy Birthday Adam. Although as my good friend Mr CC says, you are a young man.

I would say go out and get ripped, but as a fellow 40-something I know that's not possible any more !

the very best to you Adam. I'm also 44 this year. And beginning to feel it. Had a great chat with a 72 yr old rasta guy at the ute nations of dub festival a few weeks back who had the most agreeable concept of age i've ever heard. can't 'member any of it though.
