Tom Robinson at his 60th birthday party

Oops! Yesterday's Scotland/England contretemps, the former playing their trademark 'snatching defeat from the jaws of victory' card, reminded me of my own little footie cameo. I was a pretty decent amateur footballer, if I say so myself. Fast. Brave. Scored a few goals. One Saturday afternoon, I'm having a pretty good game, when disaster...I score a hat-trick. "Has he been at the sherry again?" I hear you ask. 3 goals notched. Disaster. How so? Well, two of them were in the wrong net. Post-match, I was feeling rather wretched, so buggered off on my own, to a small indie record store, to find this little number playing. I bought the single, took it home, lay on my bed and played it to infinity & beyond. My goals faux pas simply drifted into the ether. I don't own a single other piece of Tom's music. However, he's a fascinating, complex guy. I believe this is his musical masterpiece. It is very 80s, but none the worse for that. It's also very topical, but sadly, war always seems to be...   29

When this came out in 1983 it was quite a shock, but it is a classic now. It is generally regarded as the song that Tom Robinson seems to be the most proud of. #HopeYouLikeIt #TomRobinson   7
