MEMORY TAPES: 7TH JANUARY 2011
This week's Memory Tapes is all about escapism; specifically, escaping London for the country. Thomas Walsh takes up the story...
"I had a tape once ( back in the day ) which I used to play on a friday evening as I left town to head for the sticks and spend the weekend with my then girlfriend in Chichester, down there by the sea.
"The alleviation when I hit those London outskirts and all before me became green was a bit like peeling a banana.... you know, removing that thick, bitter, unbecoming outer layer and suddenly you're this soft, sweet fanciful thing. Well thats my analogy anyway."
How poetic! And here are those banana peelers....
