For the dirty-stop-outs and the ones who got lucky, for the loved, and the unloved, East London’s spangliest duo Bourgeois & Maurice present an extra special post-Valentine’s Fork Of Shame brunch. Ahead of Sunday afternoon’s fun, they sent us over a little playlist of what to expect in-between the endless Bloody Marys, the horoscopes and their own music…
Shamir – On the Regular
Begin Valentine’s day by sitting your date down and playing them this. Then explain that no matter how much you try you will never love them as much as you love Shamir and his heart shaped sunglasses. It’s just scientifically impossible.
Diana Ross – Love Hangover
Every good weekend morning should start with both of these- love and a hangover. If by some error of calculation you happen to be sober and empty bedded then just let the vocals of Lady Di soothe you. And then have a Bloody Mary for God’s sake, it’s Sunday.
Bumblebee Unlimited – Lady Bug
Everyone loves a good nectar and tonic. And everyone’s had a crush on a really hot bumblebee at some point. Don’t lie.
Murray Head – One Night in Bangkok
When people say they don’t like musical theatre we just put this on really loud til their ears bleed and they fall to their knees asking for forgiveness. Only ABBA could make a nice game of chess sound so downright drrrrty.
Betty Wright – Clean Up Woman
Because every morning-after should involve a good clean: flat, fridge, brain and orifices. We’re more gender non-specific than notorious misogynist Betty Wright, but hey she lived in olden times before women voted or drank jaegerbombs, so you can’t really blame her.
The Juan MacLean – The Future Will Come
This is one for suicide Tuesday. Stay strong, it’ll be over soon, the future will come.
Join Bourgeois & Maurice for their Fork Of Shame brunch this Sunday 15th February from noon – 4pm.
