East Leeds Magazine – Issue 70 Editorial

She’s so 20th century.

She’s so 1970s.

She knows the right things to say

She got the right clothes to wear

‘cause she’s a modern girl, oh yeah.

The Boomtown Rats with their late 70’s classic ‘She’s So Modern.’ Talking of 70’s it’s our 70th issue and Fuzzy Jones takes us back to that era by releasing her new single on 45 rpm vinyl*. Armley Press look back over the last couple of years, Lee Murtagh looks back on his 10 Year Anniversary show and Alan Cuthbertson… er… looks back on a visit to a Spanish doctor! Abel Kubare talks about the pitfalls of getting on in years and maybe Chapel FM are feeling bit old as they attempt to jazz it up a bit.

*a vinyl record or simply vinyl or record, is an analog sound storage medium in the form of a flat polyvinyl chloride (previously shellac) disc with an inscribed, modulated spiral groove.  If you’re under 30 ask your parents!

Warren’s got his cheery head on as he walks on a ‘carpet of Crispy red- golden brown leaves’ which all sounds very nice – he might see a couple of the Grace Communion Church leaping over walls although chances are his eyes are looking down as he searches for rodenty type things.

Loads happening with St.Gemma’s Hospice; Leeds Art & Photo exhibition at Leeds Grammar School, their own Vintage Fair and Winter Ball plus the City Centre Takeover. And if that’s not enough to get you to donate, then there’s

always the ‘Wear it Festive’ day as Christmas approaches.

As National Clock Breaking week approaches; don’t forget to move your clocks back on 29th October and if you break any, give W.Uttley a ring.
