During the late eighties and early nineties, the weekend started on a Thursday and finished in the early hours of a Monday morning. I'm still not sure how much I actually achieved on either a Friday or a Monday. I do actually remember coming back to reality at 11 am one Monday morning and finding myself eleven storey up working on a roof which was quite a sobering moment.
Anyway, during the early 90s on a Thursday evening I would make my way round to my mate, the chef's flat with an armful of 12" inches that had been bought since the previous week. While it took him the two hours or so to get his shit together so we could hit the pub I would play the records and relax with a couple of beers and spliffs. So by the time we eventually got round to going out we were both rather chilled.
If there was a band/act that soundtracked these nights it would probably have been the Orb and especially the first album which was a big favourite of both of us.
What has this got to do with Friday and dancing, I hear you ask. Not a lot really but I'm sure that I 've heard Little Fluffy Clouds out at the start of the weekend and it is the dance mix after all.
Have a good weekend people.
