That was pathetic – a few branches and a handful of small, rather elderly trees came down – one in our front garden. So, I got to West Middlesex Hospital fine.
One great Oak was felled – Lou Reed.
While punk in Britain was partly a rebellion against the 1960’s , in America it was different and sort of linked the two. At least it linked the alternative worlds of both times.
Famously Lou Reed once said;
“One chord is fine, Two chords is OK, three chords – that’s Jazz”. Couldn’t have put it better myself.
I found it easy to write about the mods and Northern Soul. Then I tried to write about punk and I couldn’t do it. Too personal, too close.
Lou Reed was interviewed about a month before he died;
“I still believe in punk, I still want to blow it all up”.
For the moment that will have to do.

This ‘help me’ is for everyone I met at MDU today.
