Went to Leeds, dad bought the Roxy Music LP. All right. We got it from Virgin – chart shop.
[Amazing to think of Virgin as a little record shop. I wish I'd invested $10 in the shop that day. I could have retired by now. But no, I bought an LP.]
Lindisfarne, Genesis – great. Genesis is loud/soft. Lindisfarne fun, very loud Rab Noakes ok.
[The Peter Gabriel version of Genesis was once the support act to chart toppers Lindisfarne. The concert obviously worked for me though, as I subsequently bought a shitload of Genesis records, none of which I can now stand. Rab Noakes was a singer-songwriter - still is, in fact.]
Aftermath. Me ears still ringing.
School is horrible. Eric is God.
[Well, that's nice.]
October 13th. (Friday)
This new "Sequence" programme is awful. Remember to complain to BBC.
[Can't even remember it, but I know I forgot to complain to the BBC.]
I bought Genesis Nursey Cryme.
[Or more likely Nursery Cryme. Peter Gabriel was startling to a young teen – I can still remember the fox head. It makes me tremble.]
