The notorious fish 'n chip counters!

Posted

Have just been reading JM's  description comments on his auction site for Frank Wilson's 'Do I Love You' on Tamla. He mentions about a Soul copy being left on top of a chip shop fryer, very similiar to what Dave McCadden did with Richard Searling's copy of The Jades. I've heard Richard talk about that incident a few times on his radio shows but never anything about JM's version of FW. Has anyone else, just interested to know?

Wasn't there a story about a Lou Roberts LP being left on a car roof? And a tiger walking past a chip shop in Blackpool?

It was said many years ago that Tim's copy of FW was slightly warped due to a chip shop incident

That's what I heard running photocopys of the label off ? Am sure someone knows Tim enough on here to bell him and reply - fill in the gap

Maybe whoever put the record on top of the fryer was thinking..

 'Do I Lard You?.. Indeed I Do!

Not naming names but I know a chap who got pissed up after djing at a local gig , hailed a cab , to get home , when he got up the next morning he sickeningly realised he’d left a 100 box in the cab , he couldn’t remember the name of the taxi firm or anything so he rings round all the firms in the area to no avail. Probably some pisshead picked them up and frisbeed them somewhere.

I'm not naming names either - But a lad I know left a pile of records on his mates' car roof after a do, they drove off and he didn't realize until they were home! They went back and collected most, but some were never found.

Oh dear - The evils of drink :D

It's a classic isn't it? I can picture it now - Folk chatting after a great night, all in good spirits, maybe after a few nice record deals......."Yeh, great to see you too, and thanks for doing a good turn on those few, well pleased! See you at The 100 Club next week!".........(Enters mate's car)......"What a night! Did you hear.....?" (The 'verbal' starts).......'Broom Broom' the cars zooms off........ :D

I can imagine if that had happened to me I’d have had that thousand yard stare syndrome for the rest of my days .
