Today’s New Favourite Best Song Ever

March 18, 2011

Twenty-five years ago or more, Gerard O’Hara played me Be-Bop Deluxe‘s Axe Victim while we were travelling around West Yorkshire with our Day Rover travelcards. We were both signing on and Friday’s after our cheques came through we’d meet in town and head off to Halifax, Bradford, Leeds, Shipley, Ilkley, Dewsbury, Batley. This might not sound so exciting or adventurous, but it was – these were biggish day trips back then, when we had little money and our lunch was a couple of pitta bread stuffed with ham and cheese, bought cheap.

One of the places we visited was Wakefield, which I didn’t know at the time was Bill Nelson and Be-bop Deluxe’s home town. And Adventures In A Yorkshire Landscape is Gerard and me on those trains and buses, laughing a lot and trying to make the most of what little we had, which looking back was a lot!
