Congratulations! For reasons best known to yourself you have arrived at the blog of Kid Slender in which a middle aged man comes to terms with his fading interest in new music, grapples with his total ignorance of computer chip technology and takes a stick to his natural inclination to stand in the wings. Stepping centre stage I shall be bringing with me the blueprints for my perfect band and an unshakeable belief that the Beatles and Bob Dylan killed popular music. Over the coming weeks, months and years I will be attempting versions of songs which I deem worthy of the Kid Slender treatment and treating you, the reader, to the results and an explanation of the choice. As a wise man once said, “hurry up and bring your jukebox money”.
