I loved 1982. Dunno why, its not like there was anything going on especially interesting. Although Safeway at Barbican opened…and the Barbican centre itself actually. We used to just walk around the Barbican me and my best mate imagining we were in the film Logans Run. Geeks. I also saw Star Wars and Empire Strikes Back as a double bill at Holloway Odeon. Double geek. Comics were going through a good quite ‘cosmic’ period and I spent as much time in comic shops as record shops. Triple geek. Eating oven pizzas from the new Safeway fed me and almost every chart hit from 82 soundtracked me. The following year every mood changed. 82 was probably my last flush of innocence.
