Comment:

There is a book called Crap Towns which lists the top 50 ugly British towns. Somehow Coventry evades criticism despite its equally brutal cousin Birmingham being included. Mutilated by dull-eyed planners after the war, in which it had suffered severe bombing, it stands as testament to how not to rebuild a city. A few years back in a desperate attempt to drive drunken mobs of youths from the street the council banned drinking in certain outdoor areas. Of course the youths of Coventry poured their alcohol into lemonade bottles, outwitting the staid city burghers. Today we venture to this ghastly outpost for a record fair. Our lemonade bottles are full to the brim.

Like the Shoes and Buzzcocks in particular. Best of luck scouring the rows of vinyl.

More great stuff gathered together to make a fine mix. Love the Hit Parade, Buzzcocks, Shoes and Beau Brummels choices. And another Top 10 single here! ( the fab Alphabeat tk ). Hope you got some great records at the fair...

Well as mum always said: when life gives you lemons, you make lemonade -- or alcoholic beverages in this case. Okay, my mother's dating tornadoZ, so they're starting to think alike. Never mind. Anyway, this looks sparkling. Who cares what the town looks like when you can score cool records, like the ones above.
