It's Friday . . . Let's Dance

Been a busy week. I have had to get the stupid o'clock flights two days running and yesterday was the day of the year that I hate in relation to work more than any. Performance Review time.

"Tell me Drew, how do you think you have done this year?"

"You tell me, after all you are the manager and that's what you get paid for" is what I always want to say


"Fine, I suppose" is my usual reply.

To which the response is

"Can you elaborate"

And so, me justifying my existence begins . . .

Back to the music. I loved the stuff that came out on the Skint label, it was music that didn't take itself too seriously but was still good music. The best know artist on the label is Fatboy Slim and Skint became synonymous with the Big Beat genre during the late 90s. The most successful release on the label so far was Lazy by X-Press 2 which reached number 2 in the UK.

Label boss, Damien Harris also produced music under the guise of the Midfield General.  Reach Out was released in 2000  and failed spectacularly to set the heather on fire. It's a good tune though

Have a good weekend people.

After a hiatus of three weeks due to away matches, cup ties and called off games normal service will resume this week as I will be watching Airdrie getting gubbed by East Fife. East Fife, oh how we have fallen!

'drew has maintained a consistent level throughout the reporting year.
Unfortunately this level has been so fuckin low that we have had to post him permanently to Luton'.

*drew. Wake up. You're having one of those gin-induced nightmares again*

Luton-just a state of mind
