And would subsequently, from the age of 14 after discovering alternative music, have rather eaten live wriggly worms than admit this was ever the case.
[...] It's just that I outgrew this style of music and discovered things I liked better. But, I think the reticence to ever admit I liked this song was tied up in this idea of having developed "better taste" and that's something I interrogate now.
This is quite a good song.
But I hadn't realised the bits of dub in it until now, which makes it even better.

But in my case it was more like, er...
This is actually a very fine song (back then I didn't know it was a cover), Jimmy has an outstanding voice, just that in hindsight, the production doesn't do it for me, I prefer more synthy things.
Bronski Breat itself, for instance, or Erasure.
QuoteChris Sedden found himself out of work during the shutdown as government restrictions put an end to weddings and other large gatherings. But the break in his normal routine afforded Sedden the opportunity to put on his amateur archaeology hat and spend hours pouring over images of the terrain surrounding his home in southern Derbyshire.
As he scanned along the River Trent, near the village of Swarkestone, he noticed something strange. "I thought, 'what's that? It looks a bit odd, and a bit round,'" Sedden told the Guardian.
For armchair archaeologist Sedden, the more he examined images of the area, the more he began to suspect that the faint circular formation was in fact the remains of an ancient structure, a "losthenge" similar to Stonehenge. There are other known Neolithic sites nearby, which helps support Sedden's theory. And the historic boundaries of the surrounding fields conform to the formation, suggesting that farmers may have been organizing plantings around an existing structure.
