Never thought I'd hear myself say this, but I can't listen tonight because someone offered me a free ticket to see Adam Ant.And I said yes. Ooer, this could go either way.

Stop The Rock was always a fave round our way J

Adverts were one of my favourite bands during school... I just did a post about Anorexia, one of the best punk singles of the 80s.
