Bought music papers. Hadn't got Melody Maker.
[I bought ALL the music papers? Blimey. I guess I demanded the balanced view. The weeklies were Sounds, NME and Melody Maker. I think Disc was still going but no one bought it unless it had a special in it.]
Bought music papers.
[OK, I guess I did buy them all each week.]
Bought Killer. Alright.
[Maybe Alice Cooper was wearing off. My dad hated the record, but mainly because of the snake on the cover. I hid the cover. I never played it for him. I mean, Dead Babies. ]
New joke – Mummy, mummy, I hate daddy's guts. – Well dear, put them to the side of your plate and eat your vegetables.
[These were a fad. I remember a handful. For instance – Mummy, mummy, why am I going around in circles? – Shut up or I'll nail your other foot to the floor. Mummy, mummy, can I play with grandma? – No dear, you've dug her up twice this week already.]
Roxy Music in charts. Schools Out very high in charts.
[Due to the sort of incompetent marketing I thought only Brits were capable of, Schools Out was released in England as a single AFTER the start of the summer holidays. It doesn't seem to have hurt its chart places, but I think we would all have enjoyed it more if it had given us something to look forward to. Since I read ALL THE MUSIC PAPERS I, of course, knew about it much earlier.]
Joke: What do you say when you see an elephant on the table? - Shout, "Look! An elephant!"
