The old songs sound the best reverberating through the gold mesh fabric. The slight musical distortion and the low constant buzzing in the background is how I first heard rock n roll. The sounds of my childhood as played by my two eldest brothers.
The Saturday before last Miss Tarbuck played a song by a group who I have been struggling for a while to recall. Couldn't quite remember the name of the group or lead singer although I knew she had a very particular sound and a fabulous Biba look. I couldn't think of the name of any of their songs either. I know what you're thinking, but honestly I haven't heard a peep from this group since 1975. I'm not that dotty yet.
There I was in the kitchen preparing dinner when I heard the first chord - I recognised it at once. I shouted to the Mister, he thought I had cut myself or something worse. This was it.
And today Postie brought me my very own copy of their 1975 album, Fox.
Does anyone else remember them?
