The Secret Record of Adrian Mole aged Thirteen and Three Quarters
Sept 12, 2009
Sat around picking my nose and ripping crap records. One of them sounded like the dog had dragged it out of the coal shed, but it sounded lovely on Bert Baxter's gramophone when I tried it, I probably got that idea because I'm an intellectual.
Some of the tracks are truly appalling, and others fill me with such angst - such as 'Sorry, Gotta Do It' with its synth-punches Barry Kent throws (thank goodness I have my poetry). I don't know where the original Ian Dury theme got to, the last I heard it was here.
I'm glad I got the beetroot juice off the cover after bumping into a half-empty jar on Bert's sideboard, I thought some had splashed on my face as well. But just my luck - more spots!
