As I mentioned earlier, I’ve not long climbed out of a long illness – Boxing Day ’til the end of January. I’ve never been so ill for so long. It all started with a cold, but got progressively worse, to the point were I couldn’t even drink water. I lost interest in everything and found it very hard to get out of bed – real weird head-messing stuff. I’m not one for going to the doctors, and would rather try to cure myself, but I succumbed, unfortunately. The doctor couldn’t explain the problem, but diagnosed Bronchitis. As Steve Cobby said – ‘Proper Bucking Broncho’ (try saying that when you’ve had a few). It took until the end of February to feel 100%, so Christmas/New Year passed me by. I was also booked to DJ at this…
but I had to cancel, which was a bummer, as I was really looking forward to playing with a load of Brummie DJ pals and spinning a Breathless/Snobs set, with a few fresh platters thrown in.

I wanted to post about this event before it actually happened, but hey, life has been a little hectic of late…. Anyway, if you weren’t there you missed a great night. I had an enjoyable time behind the ones and twos, and a tune I played and haven’t stopped whistling since….
Salsa House by Richie Rich (Mercury/Gee Street Records 1988)
Wow, how time fly’s. Started this job in March, and was only down to renovate the staircase, but the customer decided to renovate the whole of the hallway/stairwell. We supplied and fitted a new sky-light, and replaced all the skirting and architrave. We priced for the re-plastering of the walls, but didn’t get that job, so there was a big gap between us starting and completing, but I think it turned out well in the end….
