Even those of you not of a certain age will be familiar
with this 1970s rock anthem…..
‘School’s Out’, Alice Cooper, 1972…..! ! ! ! !
…..Alice is actually called Vincent and quite why a
boy called Vinnie preferred to be known as a girl named
Ally is one of rock’s great mysteries !

…..realising that beer-O-clock had hove into sight…..
…..and with the rallying call of ‘School’s Out, Beers In’…
…..it was a slick shimmy down to ‘The Parcel Yard’ in
This Fullers pub is in an original parcel sorting building

……when I pointed out that a very large man wearing a miniskirt
had just walked out of the front door past her simply replied…..
…..’I only work here and I mind my own business’
With a mighty effort the Groover managed to refrain from replying..
…..’Oh fuck off !’
