When I (Gary) released Do What You Like in 1991 I thought for sure we would maybe get in the top 40. I thought the idea of me and the lads writhing around in jelly whilst two (a bit young for this kind of shenanigans) girls rubbed our bums with mops was a winner! Alas we only made it to number 82 in the charts.
Was I deterred by this? No was I heck (to be said in a dead northern accent). I went on to write some marvellous songs and made videos where I didn't have to wear bondage or have jelly up me crack. Look at me now! I'm a general all round housewives favourite and everyone including the Queen loves me!
End of analogy. I'm dead happy (to be said in a Brummie accent) I got just out of the Top 1000. And if anything it's made me want to write more and hone my skills and try even harder. And I can do all of this in my living room and there is no jelly in sight! Bar when my kids consume it obv.
And now for a decaf tea to celebrate!
