Today this blog has reached the right old age of seven. I know it's a cliche but I honestly didn't think that I would be able to sustain it for seven weeks let alone seven years and probably some of you are wondering why I have. I think that the main reason is that I think that I have an impeccable taste in music and that the more people who realise that the better.
Last night when I was thinking about what dance tune to post today and after listening to the latest Weatherall offering, The Woodleigh Research Facility, which is very good by the way and reminded me of the Sabres of Paradise stuff only darker, I realised that I had pulled out the 12" of From Across The Kitchen Table, my preferred version. Afterwards I dug out the 7" version which is nearly as good and then I dug out the album and decided to play that version which when it finished I stuck straight back on again, I'm not sure whether it was just my mood last night or what but I was definitely veering in the direction of the album version as my new favourite version. One thing I know will never change is that whenever I hear the 12" version I am transported back to Debbie's flat in Aberdeen way back when I was still idealistic, thin and not worried about losing my hair. I have decided to post all three versions of the song so you can make up your own minds.
Airdrie are at home to Dundee Utd in the Scottish Cup tomorrow and although the Arabs have had a dismal season so far no doubt this is when the fightback begins and the Diamonds will get humped!
Have a good weekend people,
