Britain In The Olden Days

Long cast list (Derek Jarman, Jubilee, 1977) all of whom I saw play live (well, those who played) one time or way or another - from The Great Orlando to Little Nell and back up the scale.

Okay, I never saw Adam Ant but my mad and multiabortifacient girlfriend Deirde took her one surviving child Abigail to see him when he was working the scampi-in-a-basket circuit in the mid 80s.

And for those of you who don't have broadband, serves you right for mentioning the B52s. Sets things off, y'know?

Ah, the Jubilee. I remember that day. Hmmm. This might bring on a post.

Derek Jarman. Genius. RIP. Hard to believe that this was more than 30 years ago. I'm feeling so old...

I sort of remember the Jubilee. Lots of little silver plaques appeared on the pavements, I think. And, um...

Oh dear, MadDog, I wish you hadn't said that, it is 31 years and I keep thinking "it is only a quarter of a century". And Jarman died 12 years ago. 12. RIP, genius.
