Cor Blimey, guv'nor - we just picked up the CD of Sir Henry at Rawlinson's End in a sale at the local music emporium. And a Bonzo's CD collection too.

When I was a teenage dirtbag and went to London for the first time, I sought out the first ever Virgin Records store, which was in fact a small upstairs room at the "hippie" end of Oxford Street full of floor cushions and headphones. And rather exotic... aromas.

I plonked myself down, someone who looked like a roadie for Hawkwind (or possibly one of the band) handed me the headphones and through them I heard the Bonzos doing "Shirt".

In such moments, futures are changed.
