Dedicated to Old Holborn and people who like to walk

I cleared some of my junk from my Dad's flat that he had hauled from the roof of his house before selling it last year...I found lots of (mostly) embarrassing singles and some mildewed clothes. Amongst the singles was this. It made me think of Old Holborn, partly because he was an '80s group keyboardist and partly because it seemed so apt.

Just been listening to Streisand singing Evergreen on Youtube (end of the 1976 film and yes I cried) I remembered Caravan last night (well I would wouldn't I?) in the land of grey and pink where only boy scouts stop t think, they'll be coming back again those nasty grumbly grimlies and they're climbing down your chimney yes they're dying to get in.. And that sparked memories of Black SAbbath albums, Floyd and CSN&Y, Hendrix, Bolan, Led Zep and of course no record collection was complete without 'A Farewell to Kings' by Rush. I don't think I stopped singing 'At 17' by Janis Ian and of course there was Carly Simon, Don McLean, etc. I discovered that fantastic Peter - tchaikovsky then though the 70's were just that time for me.

The 80's didn't make the same impact. I like the shoulder pads though. I've always liked big shoulders.

Is this Old Holborn???

Old Holborn said...

Lilith, how kind.

EK has already advised me that is is my RIGHT as an Englishman to demand tea and club biscuits as I am carted off to Belmarsh for daring to be anonymous in public.

Blue eyes, so near and yet so far. I only auditioned for Depeche Mode AFTER Vince Clark left to form Yazoo.

Old Holborn said...

PS, I'll see your Yazoo and raise you a Goldfrapp

No wonder he wears a mask when he is cutting about town.

I'm kind of glad you didn't get tea and Jacob's Club buscuits at regular intervals, Old Holborn.

It could have been worse though, The alternative could have been a chat without coffee as they say.

Calfy said...

You are still the only person I know who bought "Hot In Herre", mama.

lilith said...

You're wrong Idle, Old Holborn is actually Gillian Gilbert

Tuscan Tony said...

OH is Limahl, he effectively admitted it on my blog a few weeks ago by going into deny deny deny crisis lockdown mode.

Philipa said...

Heard this and thought of Elby.

lilith said...

TT now you are just being cruel. Surely Limahl was teensy weensy. OH is a man mountain, much like your good self :-)

lilith said...

Pip, I just played it for Elby. He has gone upstairs but the walls are thin here. I agree, it was written for him :-)

Thud said...

So oh has an 80's musical history...how many more of us have such skeletons in our closets?

Old Holborn said...

The Beast has real skeletons in his closet

The Beast Of Clerkenwell said...

When I cleared out Grandpa Beasts flat I found his porn tapes and a lump of cash.
A fucking result for The Beast

lilith said...

Thank you for sharing Beast. I loved the comment from TT on Guido about your desk patina :-)
