My Favourite People & Me: 1978-1988

Alan Davies

Alan Davies was once continuously a hoarder. Pages from spoil Hits, rolled up gig posters, Cup ultimate price tag stubs, Woody Allen paperbacks, NME covers and Blondie calendars stuffed containers as soon as used to ferry procuring domestic from supermarkets (back whilst supermarkets would depart containers out for the ferrying of shopping). now not a lot that got here down from Alan's bed room wall made it into the bin, by no means brain the uninvented bin-liner.

turning out to be up isn't really effortless. such a lot of judgements: Who to revere, Sheene or McEnroe? Who to mimic, Starsky or Hutch? Who to dislike in a single day for you to express adulthood, Thatcher or Scargill? the best way to make a decision which pin-ups to unpin whilst a batch of Animal Rights leaflets or a satirical poster of Ronald Reagan call for wallspace?

The Impressionable Age of a tender guy lasts round a decade and the idols and icons of that interval can demonstrate a lot of the time and of the inspired subject.

Nostalgic, hot and laugh-out-loud humorous My favorite humans and Me 1978-1988 is an affectionate journey via a suburban adolescence in Essex and an eighties schooling in Kent. As Alan says, 'an try to have in mind who and what I cherished as a boy/youth/idiot and to determine why. There also are a few pictures.'
