Outrage Cohen snapped this one on a Shenton park bus stop. Not quite as arresting as finding THIS at a bus stop, but a great worst nonetheless. “Redder than our nearest competitors”? Sounds a bit like “Never mind the quality, feel the width.” And on the theme of piss, someone has graffitied “cider” on this bus. Are our graffitiing youth drinking fucking cider now? I won’t be surprised to see Scrumpy, or even “White Wine Spritzer” scratched into some long suffering public transport servant. Cider. Jeezus.
I wanted to find some video of the excellent Perth band The Bamboos, performing “Bottle of Wine” or even “Drunk Highway” as they did so many times at the Shenton Park Hotel, not far from this bus stop. What a great band they were. Was that really a quarter of a century ago? Shents, as discussed here several times before is sadly now an oldie home. Maybe lead Craig Hallsworth is ready for that retirement home by now. Could only find this clip.
