about

Bog roll
To Poundland we go
Where I can’t not look at the CDs
I don’t need any obviously
Obviously All Saints, Jet, Daniel Merriweather, Wet Wet Wet
♫ Caught up in your wishing well ♫
Bog roll
But allow me first this detour
For a fix I used to get at HMV
Now there aren’t so many
Places to flick through CDs
There’s ASDA
But they photocopy the covers
And I need art in colour
I’m lucky then
There’s three Poundlands where I live
One in the Mall
That’s always been there
Then another opened on the High Street
A few doors down from the 99p Store
Which later became Poundland
Three Poundlands
Can you imagine
The recurring characters in that triumvirate
A
Savage Garden
Dodgy
Steps
Wet Wet Wet
♫ Caught up in your wishing well /
Your hopes inside it ♫
Bog roll
The Silk Soft WOW Best Ever 6 Pack
Razorlight
Cassius
Keane
Moloko
Kooks
Don’t seem so long ago
Then I look: 2007
The Feeling
The Enemy
The Music
The Others
And the occasional stray I have to rescue
Like this album by Ben & Jason
I saw them support Elliott Smith in Manchester
Must have been 1998
Memories
Memories pulled from those
Poundland CDs
Remind me of me
Obsolete and born in the 80s
