|The Bug Club|
Not for the first time, I have a new ear worm and this one has really taken hold and is showing no signs of leaving anytime soon. It comes from the Bug Club who I discover, after bit of fishing* on Google, hail from Caldecott in Monmouthshire. Now I'm going out on a limb here and saying they are probably the only band of any note to hail from this particular enclave of south-east Wales. Though, as ever, I stand to be corrected. Before I sign off I must mention that I have seen a lot of these short and round haircuts on young lads of a certain age. I was in an Indian restaurant in town on Friday night and six of them on one table were sporting identikit haircuts; with the ubiquitous beard, obvs. I wanted to take their photo but two of them, at least, judging by their demeanour, may not have acquiesced to my photoshoot opportunity. So I left it. Anyway, here's that song...
