Luckily i saved the day, which is something i don't get to say often, by turning to our lord. Something else i don't get to say often.
How I converted to our Lord Creator.
Ok the 'our' bit is a bit gratuitous. But it all began couple of months ago when Radio 2 wasn't playing Mama Cass's 'It's Getting Better', and slapped on 'Kingston Town' (Not NOT UB40's turgid version) but, well, but frankly by who. Rushed off to dig up the playlist for that hour and found: Lord Creator. And of course forgot his name within a few days. Until this week when is just sort of appeared as if having been through a long lost walk in the woods of my cavernous head.
I have been getting excited about having a grown-up chrismas party in our flat. It involves me upping the DIY ante and getting a lot more done by December, but i will try. I want: Mullet wine (of course), sweetish german white wine, Dress: Lounge Suits (saw that on my mothers 80th birthday party invite), Buffet (random odd vegetarian-isms, bhajis, samosas), and Lord Creator on all night. Much as i would like to inflict Seefeel on everyone, i just dont think guitar electronica is everyone's cup of tea, but Lord Creator's missing link between Calypso and early Reggae is fantastic. One minute he's getting his girl home in time with 'Don't Stay out Late' with 50's crooner / doo wop but with brilliant brass soloists (but this extra distorted rhythm guitar), then he's calypsoing with Ma & Pa. Genius. Perfect gentle party music. Even earlier than Desmond Dekker, but heading in that direction. (I saw Desmond Dekker twice (or three time) in London, brilliant).
Vegetarian still? Probably not.
I found myself having a sausage roll yesterday. This last week has been distinctly lose on the food front. And had more John Dorey last night.
I like this 15 minute recipe we've brewed up:
- Fry an onion / and or leek, garlic, chilli - to taste, salt and pepper, with lid on. Not too hot.
- Put fish in, in 2 bits. Medium heat, with lid on.
- Turn fish after a few minutes. drop a bag of Spinach on top, with lid on.
- When Spinach has collapsed / cooked Serve.
