Friday Fictioneers- Garage

Sorry I missed Fic last Fri, I didn’t get a chance as it was such a crazy week. In a good way. A very good way indeed. Which one day I might share with you. But moving on…

I’m back in the zone this week, opening Rochelle‘s email with this prompt pic

The wife’s becoming like her myna bird, asking over and over again when I’ll be finished building that damn garage. And I have to explain, every time; a project like this, I say, takes patience, attention to detail. Any cowboy could build a garage in a weekend, and then be picking up bits of garage from all over the neighbourhood come the first big storm.

I’m nearly finished now; just the electrics, the walls and the floor. But before the floor goes down, I have to fill the hole beneath it. Then she’ll stop asking me over and over again.


Choon Choosday: Blaze – Most Precious Love

Sometimes (OK quite often) I stumble across an absolute belter that I am convinced I have already shared with you but when I check I find I have let you down.

I heard this on Monki’s Radio One show last week, and immediately knew this fell into the “how could I have neglected to post this classic?” category. It’s that synth/string riff coupled with the gospel choir that make this completely irresistible, and when you add Barbara Tucker’s brilliant lead vocal it enters the realm of being a stonking




Choon Choosday: Lily Allen – LDN

I’ve scheduled the ChCh post this week because if all goes according to plan I will be staying in London overnight and not have my laptop with me.

Since I’m in the nation’s capital, how about a little ditty that celebrates the, erm, less glamorous side of the city. It’s got horns in, it’s got Lily’s voice, it’s got great lyrics. It’s a




This video isn’t as good as the later version, but it has the proper lyrics in it, and Lily is riding a cool bike so let’s go with this one shall we?

Choon Choosday: Green Velvet – La La Land (Futureshock Club Mix)

There was all sorts of fuss about La La Land last year. I was really looking forward to it but tbh it left me cold. This, on the other hand, is an absolute belter from back in 2001.

Whenever anyone mentions La La Land it isn’t the wannabee 50s retro musical that first comes to my mind, but it’s the bassline of this little number and the brilliant vocal line. This may not have won an Oscar but it’s an absolute
