But preferably not as loud as I did when converting the vinyl to mp3, as I didn’t hear the delivery driver ring the doorbell/knock on the door meaning that a short time afterwards, I found a card on the doormat asking me to make rearrangements for the parcel as ‘there was no one at home’ to which had been added, in biro, ‘I tried four times to get your attention but your music was very loud’.
Oh, and fair play to the driver for not simply leaving it on the doorstep as the rain was falling heavily, otherwise the sleeve of my copy of the new Bodega album would likely have been turned to mush.
I know there’s some of you out there who don’t really like to dance to such block rockin’ beats, but I’d kindly ask that you make an exception in this instance.
The single went to #3 in June 1999. I would find it hard to accept that it is coming up for its twenty-third birthday, if it wasn’t for the fact that the vinyl has been ripped from the Surrender 20th Anniversary box set that I picked up a couple of years back. I’ll likely post something else from that artefact in the next couple of weeks.
