Full Follies Colour!

ERMEAGEERRRRRRD! IMMA GONNA CRY! I am ssssoooo happy this is up there. But I am sssooooo scared it’ll get taken away. PLEASE stay up there until morning, so I can make sure I can copy it for my own personal collection.

Jim is just off his tits glorious in this performance. I mean…he really is flying high, but I just love how he is. He’s just….EVERYTHING!

Simple Minds In Canberra…

I absolutely LOVED Graham Kennedy. Known as “The King” in Australia, he wasn’t without his controversy. He particularly enjoyed performing impressions of Australian crows (which are actually ravens – just putting that ornithological fact out there for you) – which can sound like they are swearing rather painfully if you’ve ever heard them?

Anyway….I have no recollection of this, but I can bet I was watching the show that night. I was always watching Coast To Coast – it was essential viewing for me.

Finding this clip on the DVD had me tickled pink, it really did.

More little snippets of clips to come…

The Prince Charles Of Stadium Rock?

OMG! Those clips on the DVD were GOLD DUST! There’s a clip from 1989 from Good Morning Australia (seemingly) – Basia Bonkowski is interviewing Jim and well…just watch the clip below. Lol (It’s the ears, right?)

The observant amongst you MAY see something that actually shouldn’t be there. I couldn’t help myself.
*smiles sheepishly*

Aussie Ogling…

This arrived in the post today…of particular interest for this Aussie SM fan. I need to cast my professional ogling eye over it and see what’s what.

Some things I have seen before, others not. I am hoping for a surprise or two. We’ll see.

I hope there’ll be something good to share. It’s Kerrsday after all. Fingers crossed!

Fan Folllies

That Folllies performance of Factory back in 1980? It was such a great inspiration for a spate of art. I think I just got mesmerised by the way Jim performed in that clip.

I’m always in awe of the young Jim. Just…that self-belief he possessed is…intoxicating. Silly, because I find myself both wanting to be him (not a singer, as such…but just to have the balls to pursue that artistic thing) AND be *with* him.


When I look at the images I am working on, or I look over at my walls, I just find myself saying over and over again “he’s beautiful. He’s just so beautiful. Beautiful. He’s beautiful.” – like a mantra.

OGWT Gems – Yeah, My Lips Were Whistling Alright!

I have been subscribed to this person’s YT account for a while – but a certain Mr Machray beat me to seeing this gem first.

I had seen the SSIS footage before but had never seen the Hunter And The Hunted clip from it…Just a few little gifs taken from it going back years ago. Both clips are in wonderful condition. I’m pretty sure the SSIS clip is shorter than the one I have seen previously.

OMFG! The Kerr deliciousness on offer! Fuck me! Looks to camera, licking lips, tongue poking out. I think my ovaries imploded this time, rather than exploded! Dare I offer a critique and say his singing seems…a little flat in it? Like he’s worried about being too loud or something…but frigging hell, he’s fucking beautiful!

Ya damn wet MY whistle, that’s for sure! Lol. Maybe OGWT should now stand for Old Grey’s Wet Test? 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

HELP ME! 😜😜😂😂😂

I may be some time…excuse me…

UPDATE: April 20 – I thought the clip would get taken down – so I had a backup plan!
