So what did you do for your Bank Holiday Monday?
I had a pleasant walk along the beach, then lunched on a punnet of whelks while watching the old folk ride around the harbour wall in their motorized buggies.
After all this sensory experience I felt it was fitting to spend the rest of the afternoon chilling out to some classic punk and early post-punk 45s.
Just seemed appropriate somehow.
Unfortunately I am unable to share the visual imagery associated with the mechanized aged (I'm no Martin Parr that's for sure), nor can I pass on the orally gratifying experience of chewing on a well peppered and vinegared whelk, but I can share some of the music I listened to, inspired by the slow, peculiar, but not unpleasant digestive sensation brought on by the aforementioned mollusc.
Makes for a nice little compilation.
