Wrongangles Motherlode   7 comments

On the old Um website with the apes and the novel “online diary” and the Year Of The Artist logo (ho ho ho) there was a section called “A Cast Of Mill Road Characters”. One of them was a Professor Wrongangles, who I later came to understand was in reality one BL Walker, of whom local Romsey types will doubtlessly be aware. Lives on Gwydir Street, and manic in the most genteel and agreeable way. The Doozer once chanced on him photocopying a cassette cover of his own improv spoken word/poetry/guitar material and bought a copy off him, which turned out to be enjoyably all-over-the-show, albeit shot through with a zany melancholy, so when I saw a laundry bag of cassettes out side his house this morning, I was faced with a bit of a dilemma. Obviously there’s an ethical dimension but if you’re Pete Um and it’s raining…?

That’s 87 cassettes. Took a few notebook/diaries too. Didn’t even look at the medical notes. If you want any of this stuff back at any point Bernard, leave me a comment here.

  1. Actually there’s 83 cassettes once I’d got rid of Tina Turner’s Acid Queen, a Paul Robeson collection, a broken Indian music tape and a recording of African Forests & Savannas.

  2. DUDE, DUDE, DUDE. When are we having a Walker Night In? Shit, well done. Saviour.

  3. Oh yeah, I didn’t buy it off him, I swapped ‘Dog Walking’ cassette single and then a few months later he just left 3 more tapes in an envelope care of Raj Mace. But, anyway, so glad you got ’em.

  4. You’ve kind of committed to be the official Professor Wrongangles archive now. Amazing.

  5. He he. Right on. Yeah! Walker Night. Might even have to fall off the chong wagon for that one.

  6. Fall off it, Walker style.
