A fitting tune to post on a Friday because most of you are probably going to be drinking a few of these (or another drink of choice, ‘Brandy & Coke’ is on the flip) while you’re out later. If you have no friends and tend to spend Fridays alone however, then I recommend you drink a few by yourself….a homeless man once told me that alcohol remedies all and rolled off a bench onto the floor without spilling his beer. I can only hope that one day I reach level 99 like him.
As for the actual tune, it’s a funky/garage cracker from Radio 1Xtra’s DJ Q featuring vocals from Brandy that makes me want to shout things like “mash up de place”, wear a thick gold chain and pretend I can afford champagne. I would dance, but I’m clearly too cool to go beyond some carefully rehearsed raised hand movements.
Out now on Local Action, it’s only available on limited vinyl that comes in a clear plastic sleeve with red wax which may or may not have been made from recycled babybel shells. I’m not quite sure.
