Boy do I feel old.
I barley recognise anyone. Just seen the two girls(!) from Human League, oh boy.
I had their faces on my bedroom wall for years.

My DH is an old punk and he doesnt get it at all.
I shall be wafting around in a trench coat and beret for the next few days brain washing the DC with OMD in the car. They are strapped in and cant escape, they shall be mine <evil cackle>

Oh yes, feeling soooo old. I remember many a house party sitting on the sidelines whilst my friend had the face snogged off her. Me in my ski-jumper sweater dress, with Dare playing. I always thought David Gahan of depeche mode looked about 12 even when I was young. I'm finding it faintly amusing seeing the lead singers of OMD and Human League being interviewed - if you didn't know their history you would think that they'd worked in something like road haulage - bit bitter and snippy aren't they? Can't quite reconcile their present personas with their former more effete incarnations.

And Midge Ure - god love him, Vienna was fabulous but he NEVER looked cool did he? But I hear that song and it brings back a very particular time.

See that Janeite is on here, last time we crossed paths we shared remembrance of the Barrel Organ in Brum grin

If there was time travel I would go back NOW!

Got it recorded for tomorrow night. Can't wait! smile.

Ahh Say Hello Wave Goodbye - such memories. But then all that synth stuff morphed itself into Goth didn't it? A bit darker and moodier - I interspersed it all with a pinch of Smiths and Cocteau Twins to cheer myself up but failed.

Japan hold up well to the test of time - gorgeous in every respect!!

They were playing The Cocteau Twins in Gap last week, of all places - dd1 was unimpressed when I had a little singalong.
