Hazily remembered early 80’s. An Abington Street wander, from Albert J Ramsbottom, where, with family, a Fish & Chip special (fish, chips, mushy peas, slice of buttered bread, cup of tea, and a scoop of ice cream in stainless steel), to Spinadisc. A candy shop of aural delight. The dauntingly cool indie in our town. On my return. I carry, greyish cardboard sleeve. Still. Money pocket burn. Vinyl. So begins a Spinadisc love affair. Some staff became friends, and house shares. And one, the mother of my two children.

1973-2005, 19/02/2005 18:07:25 TILL: 37. YOU WERE SERVED BY NIC
