FRIEND FOR LIFE STATUS CONFIRMED

A massive vote of thanks to that master of all things rocking and obscure, Master Paul Haines, who responded to my whining regards my lack of Painters & Dockers material by sending over a DVD filled with no less than 2 CDs worth of Drinkin’ Jimmy and his pals, along with much in the way of Captain Sensible and other weird and wonderful stuff from the decade that taste forgot (that'd be the 80's to those of you who didn't live through Hypercolour, mumble pants, and The Human League).

Much in the way of odd and enjoyable singalong-type activities have since commenced…

Now if only record companies would make most of that stuff cheaply and easily available!

A lot of that music is now sadly deleted catalogue and is almost impossible to find, unless you got lots of money and import it all.

I'm old enough to remember when the 70s were the decade style forgot. I'll just get my walking stick and hobble off, then.
