Bootlace Walking Holidays

‘it’s been a long time coming but a change will come’‘Sam Cooke’s a cropper’ Brain a mush. Sleepless night… vacant pause. Mushy peas, yes please. Where were we?  Brain a mush, mash, for smash… vacant paws… mash, mmm… (ponder)… … (ponder over)… Sunlight burnt marmalade piercing brown papered windows… Al Pacino’s insomnia denied memory of […]

‘Ticking away the moments that make up a dramatic day’‘Scarlet Floyd’ This is the Day The The sang, and by goody goody gum drops wasn’t it. By ecky-thump if I haven’t had a shower, I had, its spring doesn’t we know and shorts have sprung forth beige legs attached to laced up flip-flops. Life is […]

‘‘Size of el-flea-ant’‘Caribbean nights’ Climbing trees looking for fleas, grazed knees, where are the fleas, blown in the breeze, gone fleas Flead was written and performed by Flea and The Tijuana Brass I thought that would be a good opening gambit as I stood in the kitchen making a turkey and ham salad sandwich. Now […]

‘‘I say madness is too pure like mother sky’‘Can and not I can I can’t aka Tubbs League of Gentlemen’’ Get out and walk. Yep, that’s the way. A good clean walk will clear the airways, yes that’s it.  De-fuddle the discombobulated spiders’ legs of confusion, quell the mass goings-on. Free the mind. Stretch the […]

‘Would you love me through the winter? Would you love me ’til I’m dead?‘Nick ‘Charlie’ Drake not a duck’ To play a musical instrument at the click of the fingers I would probably play the click of the fingers. Many a snappy tune played on them. I can’t be trusted with the guitar, I tend […]

‘The cucumber uprising’‘The People’ Back out of the way future, we’re coming through. As long as the bus is on time that is. That is. It is. Isn’t it. It is. Cars have been our driving force since Gary Numan first invented them in 18 O’Axle (Rose) to the differential – about a millimeter sir. […]

‘Does a lot of work for charity, doesn’t like to talk about it’‘Primmy being nicey’ Been in the country 5 minutes and had three jobs. Is that a good or bad thing? Someone will always tell you either or either. Fish was a good one, liked that. Hooked, but I had to let it go. […]

‘Time time time, see what’s become of me’‘Simon Art Gart and funkal anyone else’ Too much time on your hands is the Devil’s brew, maybe a blessing, I don’t know. I’ve only changed my mind a zillion times to this intro already. Right now, as I sit and think, I’m listening to my new Soundcloud […]

I asked a lady at the chemist bit of a big shop the other day if they had Epsom Salts, ‘Ooh, I’m not sure, is it for constipation or sore throat?’ ‘Neither, I want to put them in a bowl of water and soak my feet’ ‘Oh’ There is no joke here folks, it just […]

Rummage, rummage, nurse, nurse – old shows, writings, clips – from fool at variable radio stations. This news item audio clip (with full script) goes back to 25 August 2012 when fool was at Radio Indochine Here fool discusses wigged robbers and bikini clad shepherds, with music from The Clash… Bad Hair Day audio folks […]
