Can of oven-cleaner and rubber gloves. Su Leslie, 2016

I’ve often been accused of having my head in the clouds. Today it’s somewhere much less enjoyable. Image: Su Leslie, 2016

… at least I’m enjoying the soundtrack.

  1. I love your taste in music Su!!! I went to see The Jam live at the second last gig they ever did, it was brilliant!!!!! Back in the early 80’s, I was constantly listening to one or other of their albums, and still listen to them sometimes now. Bruce Foxton used to also drink in one of the pubs I used to go to in Guildford, in Surrey, I saw him on a few occasions, but never actually spoke to him 😦

    • Major envy attack! As I’ve got older I realise how much I missed culturally growing up in NZ. It’s not that we don’t have a great music scene, cos we do. But virtually all my absolute favourite bands — the soundtrack of my life — are British and not that many toured here. Glad you approve!

      • It’s true that NZ has a good music scene, but I can understand why you miss the idea of seeing some of the British bands, not that I’ve actually been to see any over the last 30 years or so. Well, not any famous bands, plenty of local bands in Cornwall, the worlds centre musically speaking! Lol! 🙂

      • I don’t really enjoy live music as much these days. I get bored at concerts and find them just a bit too loud (talk about being an old fogey). I think the last gig I went to was the Foo Fighters; outdoors and really good despite the rain. Before that I ended up walking out of a Stereophonics gig because the bass was turned up so much I could feel my ribs reverberating in my chest. I have a bit of track record leaving concerts. I experienced Counting Crows from the St Johns room at the NEC in Birmingham. I was seven months pregnant and worried about the effect of the noise on my baby. Turned out quite nicely really; the two ambulance ladies were really lovely. They fed me tea and biscuits and then sent a gift for my son when he was born. The rock and roll lifestyle eh!

      • It’s sad when you reach the age that the music at live gigs is too loud, unfortunately I reached that point a while ago! Lol! What a fantastic pair of ambulance ladies, you obviously had quite an effect (positively) on them, for them to have bought your son a gift when he was born 🙂

      • It is sad. I think the ambulance ladies were just pleased to have something to do! It was a well-behaved gig; no other customers. A pregnant refugee from excess decibels was a bit of a novelty — especially a Kiwi one. They were so lovely!
