Life comes at you pretty quickly when you’re 17.
Summer 1979 Jim, an idiot: “Because I don’t like that annoying “Roxanne” song that is all over the radio, I can safely ignore The Police’s clearly novelty fusion of reggae and punk and concentrate on the Clash, Jam, Television and Ramones albums that are turning my world upside down.”
Christmas 1979 Jim, a brain genius: “I just bought Reggatta de Blanc at Tower Records”!!!
