a friend of mine has...
well, i would't call it a leather fetish as such.
but he likes things made out of leather.
i hadn't seen him for a couple of years but when we met at the monocle
cafe last week the first thing he did was to plonk something old and leathery
onto the table.
i told him that a handshake was more customary in the big city
( he's from the shires )
so he put it away and produced this.
made in japan obviously and i should imagine it's a limited edition.
of course he hasn't got an iphone
when i'd finished admiring the iphone case he put it away and pulled out this
designed to make me turn a little more green with wallet-envy
so there i was. out accessorised by a young whippersnapper from hereford.
we necked back our coffees and agreed to meet again in another two years or so.
i love this song.
true story i have it on my ipod in english, spanish and german.
and if you can make a song sung in german likeable then you know
you're onto something good, right ?

ps. sack the bloke at the sound desk who forgot to fade her mic up at the beginning.
