With our regular Friday night top deck disco Nancy’s bringing you our favourite DJs week in and week out for a while now, we thought it was high time to get to know the Nancy’s residents a little better. And what better way to understand someone, to look into their soul, than to find out who their first embarrassing teenage crush was! Without further ado, may we present a slightly cringey trip down memory lane…
“My teenage crush was Clare Grogan from Altered Images. BUT at around the age of 16/17 I was at a house party in Glasgow with mates in bands , you know that kinda thing standing quite innocently in the hallway chatting and the toilet door burst open and Clare pops her head out and asks some girls quite loudly, “Anyone got a spare tampon ?” I Could Be Happy never ever sounded the same since that day.”
“I think I was in love with John Travolta for a bit… I had a life-sized poster of him on my bedroom door in that shorts and t-shirt look from Grease… it was a very innocent affair. But once puberty hit I WANTED a Magnum’d Tom Selleck so bad. I wanted him inside me…. you know what I’m saying. I wanted to stuff all of him, deep inside me. Fuck love. This was serious man-lust. If I married him I’d deffo take his name. John Selleck is such a hot porno name, no?”
“Christian Slater in Heathers and yes I may have had posters from Big mag on my wall and yes I may have sent him a love letter……….
AND yes the sight of Christian Slater in Name Of The Rose VHS got a bit worn out in a certain scene……
“Robin Campbell from UB40. I went to see them at Sheffield City Hall in 1981 and I think he was wearing Farah slacks and a Gabicci shirt. Someone from the support band snogged my sister so it was more than my early adolescent hormones could take!”
“Nathan Moore from Brother Beyond. When The Harder I Try came out I realised I was a massive mo, no arguing. I even styled myself on his look in the video for the summer of ’88. (Cringe.) I almost booked him for Carpet Burn years ago. He was super sweet but I cancelled as thought the set would be on the thin side… and I found out he was married.”
Join us in the top bar every Friday for Nancy’s, with Martyn Fitzgerald and Discosmack on duty tomorrow night Friay 27th June from 9pm – 3am with Abattoir in the laser basement.
