Or what I mean to say is, 'knowing' someone doesn't mean what it used to.
This a remix of my song Purley Way by The All Golden aka Pete Gofton.
I 'know' Pete but I've never met him. I met him on Twitter. He seems more than alright.
He made me laugh a couple of times by the way he hated Van Morrison and loved Mike Nesmith in almost the same nuanced way that I did. Made me think I could drink with him or that he would make a good job remixing one of my songs.
Purley way is a strange one, when it comes to Lido history. It was closed in 1980 but the unqiue Deco diving board still survives inside a gardening centre. Dan Mayfield did some field recording there for my album Lido.
As well as the album and CD I'm very proud to announce that Lido will also be an exhibition.
