Girl, You'll Be A Woman Soon is jolly creepy, although a fantastic song.

Good Morning Little Schoolgirl starts with a request to go home with her, and finishes with the suggestion of murdering someone (perhaps the same girl) if she won't be Muddy's baby.

Champagne and Reefer- well, no explanation needed there!

Kinky Boots is poking fun at the blind following of fashion, but 'sexy little schoolgirls' is a line which wouldn't wash today, especially delivered with such glee.

And of course, there's always Dismembered And Molested (and that's one of the more gently titled ones) by Cannibal Corpse if you really want to make a hipster cry. 😆

Beats pulling the wings off of house flies when you're bored.

I don't see how.. I mean, have you ever tried to catch a hipster in a butterfly net?  It usually takes several attempts.  They're a bit like squirrels - the beard acts like a decoy in the same way that a squirrel tail does.

Fly paper doesn't really work with hipsters though, I agree.

Ah, you're going about it the wrong way. Lay bait of a bowl of Frosties with a £7.50 price tag. They're temporarily distracted whilst trying to find a machine which will let them pay by waving their phone over it. It's then that you pounce, death metal LP in hand!

I thought hipsters wanted everything to be "authentic". Therefore they would be paying by cash - probably in groats or guineas.

It was a throwaway joke, don't forget. Part of what makes it fun and silly is that you can't actually generalise about the tastes of a group of people.

It won't stand up to this kind of scrutiny! 😆

I had to go to his house once back in the '80s when I worked for the Beeb. In his basement along with his extensive record collection was a signed framed gold disc from Frankie for relax

Which part of Aunties' glorious empire were you working in?

Our paths may have crossed, I was in TV News picture library and then on attachment as Clive James' picture researcher for a few years. Started out in BH in 1980-2, TVC until 96, KH 88 until 91 or 92.

I was in TVC basement (VT) from 82 until 85 or 6, then moved up to the 4th floor spur when I got a job with News, apart from the attachment to Doc Features in Ken House 88-91/2 that was where I stayed until I left in 96. 

We were certainly in the same building for a couple of years, though.

Yep we had our photo studio in the basement. Probably queued  for a sausage roll at the same coffee bar upstairs 

Small world. We were lucky to have worked there at a great time, pre-John Burt for me !

Maybe I'm old (maybe?) but I'm not seeing much of a problem with that,

given a couple of minutes I could come up with stuff that made that look

positively Disneyesque..............

I had the (mis)fortune of meeting John Burt. You're not wrong at all!
