Yeah, THAT'S what's tragic.

Some would say that 13 comments between just the two of us (we can make it if we try) on a post about a Glasgow band on a community formed from an in-joke is a tad self indulgent. Not I. Thank Google for thebustocrookes, he'll comment and make us look approachable and accessible again, like when Tony Blair plays guitar and Cherie stands and claps along with that....smile.*

Will you look at all our pretty icons? Those hers&hers paid accounts are paying for themselves, eh? I know I love that icon and no, I have NO clue what it's about. I just love their little dino claws.

Don't tell me to delete myself you rude bitch.

*I'm Tony btw.

Tragedy (when the feeling's gone...)

Yes, I am that predictable that I'd gatecrash your in joke :-)

An ex made me a tape with "Jolene" on it (a cover of the Dolly Parton song), must dig it out.

Imagine if Shampoo were an Orange Juice cover band, that's Strawberry Switchblade (bad example, but best I can think of)

I LOVE Jolene!

It SO was your joke. You're the source of all our power.

....I also have heard of but never heard Orange Juice :/ God, I'm RUBBISH. I remember Shampoo though. Vividly.

Source of your power? I've got a lot to answer for!

Shampoo are ace, I have a real soft spot for girlish tomfoolery amongst my straightfaced emo/indie/grown up music.

Will post some Orange Juice (&Edwyn Collins) this weekend for you to see what you think :-)
