Loki At Home (circa 1991)



Just found this photo on an old disc. Me at a house I shared with Kemper Norton in Swansea circa 1991.

Oh my, look at the floor. Impressive.

And...and...the table...

Were you listening to 'Baggy' at the time? Or about to visit The Hacienda perchance??

Bloody 'ell...didn't know you were in Scritti Politti.

Loki said...

my baggy period had gone by then I think, last time I saw the Happy Mondays must have been when they played Bristol in about 1989?

and anyway, that's a very expensive italian dress suit jerkin!! and you can just see by corner of the chair one of my cooler-than-thou red or dead bumper car shoes.... so that shows i was into designer gear n shit and that the student rags is just a mythos i was creating...

and you didn't know I was in Scritti Kek?!? you think i come to this blogging lark without at leats some postpunk credentials? - check the sleeves for 'spoon player No.2' and 'background weeper' and then apologise immediately

I hang my head in shame...

I know you've flipped this pic, but look at the newspaper at the bottom and how 'JACK DEE' has come out. Very very mysterious.

I think that's my "Psychocandy" tape on the table there. Who'd have thought we'd now live in homes with six types of vinegar
and mint frowing in the kitchen.
Did we have a kitchen at that place ?

Loki said...

hey, Kemper... this was the good house with a proper kitchen n everything, definitely a step up from the first pit... if I remember rightly it had various crap Psychedelic pics all over the walls etc... three spray painted dummy heads nailed to the walls.... various odd portraits and Brion Gysin photocopies plus an excellent Alex Grey calender which I wished I kept...

oh and a huge psychedelic sheet with Nuclear War Now written all over it...

Loki said...

the Jack Dee thing is weird....

No, you've nicked this picture from that "Jade Goody and partner show us around their lovely new home" feature from OK! Magazine ...

"last time I saw the Happy Mondays must have been when they played Bristol in about 1989? "

Nah, we saw 'em at a V fest about ten years later than that!

Loki said...

yeah, we did and I saw half a set at Glastonbury as well... I think Alzheimer's is peeling my memory away like an onion...

Happy Mondays: Bleeeeeeurgh

Jade Goody is doing a book signing in Yeovil next week; anyone like me to pass on a message...?

Loki said...

Nah, she's coming to Taunton this weekend I think so I can swap Geography facts with her then... though I get the distinct impression that Mrs Loki has conspired to send me off to the Peat Moors Centre for the Barbarians and Storytelling event instead... I think that's this week..

Just found out today we've got celebrity cockney uber-hoodlum Dave Courtney coming down for a book-signing in the next couple weeks too...
