Big Decision



This song immediately transports me back to a specific time and place. It is any Monday night from the middle of September on in 1987, the place is Aberdeen and the indie dance night , although that term had yet to be coined, called the Mudd Club, I have no idea why the extra d. I can taste the Furstenburg as I type this. Big Decision, along with Beaver Patrol and Bizarre Love Triangle always have this effect on me,  I'm eighteen, skint fending for myself for the first time and just ditched in favour of a new life in a land down under. Still it wasn't all bad, the drink was cheap  and the music was mainly very good.

That was a very long time ago!

When we were really skint we would buy a bottle of Fursty and a Brodies cider (7%) and make a snakebite, you didn't need too many of those to send you ga-ga.
