  • Records you only play when you're drunk

    I was surprised to find a Charlie Rich LP on the turntable when I came downstairs this morning.

    I was wondering are there any particular records you lot have that only come out when you've had a few?

    Or to put it another way:

    Endless Tripe

      I don&#39;t play records, I ring people up...  

      Apologies to LDJB (and Mrs LDJB), Sermad, Rich Hero, The E Man... and anyone I&#39;ve forgotten...

      As a rule, it&#39;s my ballad-style soul singles that come out of the crates and I usually enjoy a wet-eyed soulful &#39;woe is me&#39; half hour. Usually ending with Maxine Brown&#39;s &quot;Let Me Give You My Loving&quot;, or, if really, really, really exceedingly pished... Minnie&#39;s &quot;Les Fleur&quot;.

      Soft Lad.
      If you're looking for a pristine copy then this isn't the one for you. The vinyl looks like someone has polished their brickwork with it and the label has been ruined by some fool with a pen.

          When drunk, the lady of the place takes over the turntable, and gets into her singles...

          &quot;Hey, Kelly Marie&#33; &#39;Feels Like I&#39;m In Love&#39;&#33; Brilliant&#33;&quot;

          Followed by much twirling around the lounge with arms outsretched...

          This is also the occasion for the A-Side of Pussycat&#39;s &#39;Mississippi&#39; to get one of its rare spins, but fortunately also when Deee-Lite, Indeep, Lene Lovich and The B52s all come out in force, too...

            wayne, i now have this image in my head - very similar to alison steadman in &quot;abigail&#39;s party&quot; when she starts getting all the demis records out...

            not that i&#39;m implying in any way...

            fantastic, though.

              I once polishe doff the best part of a bottle of vodka and listened to motorhead&#39;s &#39;Bomber&#39; at full volume through headphones. A most regretable experienceas just about every organ in my body was completley fucked for days.

                Hmmm, well we definitely DON&#39;T have &#39;Wings Of Love&#39; on any of our walls, and the clothes are more &#39;Sex &amp; The City&#39; than &#39;Margo Ledbetter&#39;, but she does do a worryingly accurate Alison Steadman impression. Hunch the shoulders, purse the lips: &#39;Aalisonnn...&#39;

                To be fair to her, though, it is when drunk that the Kelly Marie comes out. When left to her own devices sober it&#39;ll be anything from Jeff or Tim Buckley, to Pucho &amp; The Latin Soul Brothers or Fairport Convention you&#39;ll catch her listening to. Or Madonna, obviously. A LOT of Madonna...

                  yes, it&#39;s the hunched shoulders thing&#33; abigail&#39;s party and nuts in may are perennial favourites here.

                  been a while since i listened to pucho - should dig something out.

                    Shouldn&#39;t this be what records do you play when you&#39;re sober? I don&#39;t think I&#39;ve ever spun a record without a drink at hand... Come 5am, it&#39;s always time for the gunslinger songs... Johnny Cash and all that.

                      Usually come down to a stack of 80Â’s Medway ala Milkshakes, Caesars, Delmonas, Daggermen etc. but depends whoÂ’s been round.

                      Theme from Screen Test, Life Is The Name Of The Game – Brucie 45 and Walk In a Line [Stones Throw EP] are all normally out, along with Mole Catcher by Bernard Wriggley…..


                      Have been known to indulge in Sun Ra on extremely loud headphones for pure self gratificationÂ…

                              I&#39;d like a full tracklist if you have it, I&#39;ve only got a testpress on Mayking Records so only know a few of the titles. Detour Records offered me £60 for the LP approx 8 yrs ago so probably worth a bit more now. Got the EP on Empire too.

                              My head hurts
