Do you remember?

This morning a I stumbled over a link to The Housmartins and suddenly I was a 14 years-old again sitting in my parents living room with great big headphones singing along to the boys from Hull. The LP London 0 Hull 4 was probably one of the first LPs where I really listened to the lyrics and understood what I meant. OK, almost everything...

Listening to the music now I still find them brilliant and the lyrics is rather clever. Lyrics that that I fully understand now by the way... Also I'm totally aware what Paul Heaton's message "Take Jesus - Take Marx - Take Hope"on the LP means.

Oh those were the days, being young and ideological... Now we are just old and cynical. 25 years can do a lot to you.
