UB40's jukebox
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:32am

morning all

UB40 x 2 and me =

had the UB40 in Thatcher's Englad - 60 quid a week and 2 milk coupons for Arnan 1987??? Squatting ... scavenging markets at the end of the days... was actually a great time...

Met a punch of punks (200???) on the metro in Mexico city - they were heading to aUB40 show I had not heard of.. I later went and it was sold out ... snuck in by being adamant that I was a journalist but left my pass back at the hotel??? Flashed the NYS Drivers License... Great crazy show

Greg from ZONE 5:

Morning, Gary & all!
I picked up the Fattie Bum Bum 45 at Domino Sound in NOLA. "Bum Bum Situation" is an instrumental version. Perhaps more importantly, my brothers and I found the title so hilarious that we use it to describe anything that is a downer.
-Did you go to the party?
-I went for a little while, but it was a real bum bum situation.
