Full English Breakfast
Sometime circa 1972 before they were famous Roxy Music were out on tour in a transit van; feeling the need for sustenance they pulled up at a greasy spoon causing some consternation amongst the regular clientele when Eno and the boys marched in resplendent in their stage gear of: platform boots, fake leopard skin tops and eye liner. History doesn’t record what they ordered but one can almost guarantee that at least one of the band had a full English breakfast.
A full English breakfast is one of those of things that make life just that little bit better. Comprising: sausages, bacon, eggs, baked beans and fried tomato, there is something comforting about a full English and a mug of British Rail strength tea. It is even a folk remedy for hangovers. Personally I gat a craving for a full English breakfast on an almost weekly basis but normally manage to hold out and just have one a month.
Anyway I was pleased to stumble across this particular website though its not strictly speaking a full English breakfast it is in the right area. Here to encourage you further is a free MP3 of the Storm Bugs track from 1978 called Full English Breakfast
