here's one for you, the drones, 'temptation of a white collar worker' ep from 1977, this was the spirit of punk, do-it-yourself, the sleeve even showed where the money came from to produce the record, this is another one i bought on one of my usual saturday foray's into derby's saddlergate, r.e.cords sucking me in like a magnet, hector, the famous northern soul dj, caught between two world's, bondage trouser's and brogues, 'cowboy' t-shirt's and penny loafers, bowling shirt's and old lewis biker jackets, patchoulie oil and red stripe, doc marten cherry red boots and crombie overcoats, cut down 'skelly' lambretta's and old beezer's, red pocket handkerchief's and dirty levi's, coal not dole, powercut's and ford anglias, football specials, football scarves tied around the wrist and harrington jackets, red socks, lime green socks, herring bone's and norwegian's, skinheads, suedeheads, rocksteady, the carib club, the ajanta, the old playhouse, the rex cinema, the old bell hotel, the polish club on charnwood street, the trident on east street, cleo's, bailey's and 'tiff's, button down collar's, sta-press and segg's, limey's, d.j.b and felix record's, union jack button badges, dancing to ska tunes at the youth club, thirteen pocket trousers, talcum powder and skol lager, sam fox and linda lusardi, chemist shop's and pro-plus, fucking hell, i'm getting old........
 yep, that really is a triumph engine, tipped through 90 degrees in a racing outfit, bonkers, one of the best day's i've had, i get really fucked off with people, work, football, biker's, even walking the dog's, i like my own company, that t-shirt was made for me, 'doesn't play well with other's' but, you know what? when i'm around racer's i feel at home, their not sitting on the fence, 'one day i'm going to race..' you have to make that happen, it's a fucking hard road, expensive, loads of work and dangerous, and even though i'm no good and will never win anything, i'm having a go, not sitting back and dreaming about it......................
