1974: LOVE SONGS

1974: Love Songs is a trip down memory lane to a more innocent time when the 7 inch vinyl single was played over and over again; words were memorised, dance moves were worked out and relationships began and ended at the local Church Hall disco.

A taste of Juicy Fruit, of paper rounds, flared jeans, Green Shield stamps and a badge on the lapel of a blazer.

1974: Love Songs is a trio of poems from broken teenage hearts inspired by the music of the Rolling Stones, Jimmy Ruffin and Sparks.
