At one time Roland Gift, the lead singer of the Fine Young Cannibals was voted in the top 50 'Most Beautiful People in the World'. What bollocks: for we are all gorgeous in our own ways darlings! Back to Roland though. I, along with a group of my forty and fifty something friends can all vouch for the fact that he's still pretty darned hot. And his voice still packs a punch. We loved the lady backing singers, the same certain age as us, in their Corbyn T-shirts too. You go girls!
I'm still aching from Sunday. Along with a 9km run and rather a lot of walking, I danced for hours at the 'Sounds of the Summer' event at Newton Abbot racecourse. It was ace. UB40, All Saints and China Crisis played too. The Fine Young Cannibals were definite my favourite. The '80s album 'The Raw and the Cooked' is downloaded to my Spotify account and features in my in-car entertainment selection.
I took the boy to educate him about the music from my youth. Surprisingly China Crisis turned out to be his favourite act. I'd forgotten this haunting song that I loved when it was a chart hit.
