*Quintessential 80s

This was already going quite swimmingly simply on account of Ms Adu’s general atmosphere before they started introducing horses, motorbikes and Land Rovers into the mix. All I need now is a line of green drinks with brollies in them and a pair of Wayfarers wrapped round my head 24/7.

*I wouldn’t normally, but it’s the only word that will really do, isn’t it.

    Curious ‘fact’ – Sade gave her first royalty check to striking miners in ’84.

    Excellent curious fact, Joe, & welcome to the blog. She was going out with Robert Elms I seem to remember, though it seems hard to believe that that would have anything to do with it.
