Day trip to Rotto

Ljuke assures me this is as shithouse as you might hope. And this is the A side. What’s the B? Two weeks in Rockingham?

    Certainly got a hammering on radio back in ’79. I remember it too well.

    Ten times the price of the object featured yesterday? Seems about right.

    Transcendent Worsting. “Sea sick all the way, and covered in spray”…….fuck I remember this ditty like yesterday. 720 had it on high rotation back in the day before Toto’s Africa came along and knocked it off the perch (where incidentally it’s remained ever since). And I thought this had been lost to the anals of time.

    MP3 this diamond without delay Ljuke. If you don’t have the gear, I’ll pay for the transfer. Failing that, name your price.

    I would have sworn that was originally a 6WF song with different lyrics, not some Bazzaa & Wattsie 6PR promo number. Could this be Rottogate? Either way, after hearing it I now realise it’s just turd on a platter. Worst.

      The original was “Day Trip to Bangor” a 1980 hit by Fiddler’s Dram.
      This blatant rip-off by a bunch of 3rd class wannabes is typical of an overpaid crew who somehow imagined that they were comic entertainers.
      Then, as now, I cringed at the very mention of them.
