It was my birthday the other day and Mrs Pajp asked me what I wanted as a present.
Having heard Ezra Furman’s “Love You So Bad” on 6Music over the last few weeks and having subsequently spent far too much time watching him on YouTube, I told Mrs P that I would like an Ezra Furman CD (I had to spell the name out E-z-r-a-F- and so on) and I mentioned Perpetual Motion People, partly because of Body Was Made and Lousy Connection and partly because Transangelic Exodus was not then out.
Anyway, Mrs P bought me Day Of The Dog because – she said – she didn’t like the look of the others.
Now, I don’t want to seem ungrateful, but despite my reasonably explicit request, I am getting a CD (it is on its way from Amazon) on the basis of what Mrs P (not ever likely to be, or want to be, an Afterworder) liked the look of.
Have I been hard done by?
Still, it doesn’t stop me buying the others for myself, does it?
