31 very interesting things: 1. Deutscher Girls[video:youtube:9fmg3JKHAcM] So Graham Holliday in his noodlepie guise has invited me to join him in his 31 very
interesting things challenge. This is of course right up my street, as the sort of very tedious person who might ask you over the starter to name your top 3 records of all time. It’ll be a bit of music, a bit of TV and other media stuff.
I’ll copy Graham for my opening choice, by picking the first 7″ single I ever bought. And uncannily I also bought it in Woolworths in 1982 (Tunbridge Wells branch). Like most of my friends at that time I was a big AntFan and had already been given the Prince Charming and Kings of the Wild Frontier albums for Christmas. I didn’t know Adam and the Ants were part of the new wave that had ridden into town on the coattails of punk. I just liked the Burundi Beat. Deutscher Girls marked a defining moment in my life – I was old enough to buy my own music.
