Random musings from the front line (well, more like the support trench, or perhaps the castle 10 miles away, supping Chateau Lafite with the General Staff) in the battle for curiosity, inertia, grammar and a Dachshund called Colin.

Top of The Pops

I was recently sent these scans of old LPs, and am so intrigued by the following albums, I'm off to invest in some fantastic software that "rips" old records to iTunes. I particularly feel sorry for Julie, and can't help wondering if she made it to 17 without committing suicide.

Oh Julie. It's time.

The "Minister Quartet" prove that New Labour ministers aren't the only ones to indulge in a bit of touching.

Don't move, mother, the brown jellyfish has landed on your head.

"HOW many inches, Tino?"

I use my ESP to predict that major dental surgery is needed.

Second man on the right - where is his right hand. Could that explain the facial expression of the second one on the left. And what is the front man saying?

Now for hire in the Sidcup area for £40 per night. No bar mitzvahs.

Joyce shows that for 50c, she'll do anything.

From the days when ensuring that outfits matched was more important that ensuring that they didn't make you vomit.

The shoes, the facial expressions, the anguished cries, the pain of the girl on the left. Classic.

There was an email going around at work not so long ago with that lot on it. Can't exactly remember what the point of it was, though.

Do you think Tino grew up to be Ricky Martin?

Oh, thanks for the Blogroller thing.

What's really scary is that looks just like my sister's record collection!

And I think Joyce is a guy in drag.

IdV - I think Tino grew up to be a rent boy, actually!

Kyah - you so need to do the same thing - scan and email. All these albums are destined to be cult classics.

WW - you know what, I think you're right. Maybe she's the same person as "Devastatin' Dave" in her secondary genre.

I'vej ust found this blog entry about the same topic. It's much funnier than just putting the pictures up. I hang my unamusing derivative head in shame...

Hehe. Making posters of those. Oh yes. Particularly enraptured by Millie Jackson. Can't think why! Lol.

I think it's Millie's fellatio pose, and the small print on her album. Apparently, ESP stands for "Extra Sexual Persuasion". No thanks, Millie, I'll pass this time, thanks.
