Before Bobby Got His Groove On
SWC and Badger posted Come Together as number 7 in their Top 200 here today which prompted JC to comment that he could believe that they posted it over Velocity Girl, a track which I know is a favourite of the anorak wearing C86 brigade but for me was always just a little too short and there is something about the way Gillespie sings " leave me alone" which has always irritated, being a wee bit too whiney for my liking. The post and the comments had me longing for the working day to be done so I could go downstairs and dig out my favourite pre-E Primals moment, as up until now I hadn't ripped the track. Since early this evening I think that I have played the song about ten times. Every time I am transported back to the days when I was thin, was a walking advertisement for Flip and paid over the odds for Lucky Strike unfiltered fags from a tobacconists just off George Square.
It is too good to keep to myself and on the b-side they covered a track by The Shadows of Knight but back then I didn't have a clue it was a cover.
