This is a question Childhood bad taste

When we start out in the world it's not our fault if we accidentally latch on to liking really bad stuff. Well, at least, that's the only reason I can come up with for owning Huey Lewis and the News' album Fore!

What early bad taste can you confess to?

Ah the Old Days
When I think back of how I used to be so fussy about having my Armani Suits altered and making my valet spit and shine my hand crafted Churchs loafer's every evening I cringe with embarrassement.

Fortunantely I have now seen the error of my ways and I now shop at JD sports for all my clothing needs. Thank god for UK Garage sensations Blazin' Squad and So Solid for showing me the true path........

I was a very, VERY disturbed child. Exhibit 1- I had read Phantom of the Opera at an early age. 2- To compensate for this to the peer group, I just HAD to wear red jeans with a really, really terrible shirt. I mean, it had little puppies and kittens and FLOWERS. It looked like a department store threw up all over me.

When I left school and started working in 1993 we all had to wear shirt and tie. So me and the other young imp I worked with thought it would be great to wear waistcoats as well. We started off thinking we were the mutts danglies, but I think I may have taken it too far by having one that must have been made out of a old rug. It was thick with bright red and blue squiggles on a black background. It was also the itchy-est bastard known to man. must have been made out of the wool from round a sheeps arsehole or something.

Also had a leather waist coat which is bad in itself, but when u wear it with a white t-shirt and a bloody demin shirt unbuttoned ontop of it, you just look a tit. Actually started a small mini trend with that one for about 2 weeks till we noticed that no one who wore it was pulling the girlies in the pub. All that and a curtains haircut.

Just to carry on the music theme, first album - Bobby Brown, My Perogative.

Think i have grew wiser with age, can't get any worse.

the reason Thunderbirds is so slow and repetitive
is because they were originally made for a 30 minute time slot but then they had to pad them out to a 1 hour slot for some reason - we seem to only get the padded versions.

Cyndi Lauper
I used to be into Cyndi Lauper, which is OK, but I also used to think a lot, and talk to my brother a lot, about how I wanted a robot who looked like Cyndi Lauper that I could have sex with. I think I didn't have enough self-esteem to ever imagine having sex with Cyndi Lauper or a real woman who looked like her.

Like the reply below
it was studio line hair gel for me. All crackly and set like concrete. Why didn't anyone tell me I looked like a complete tit? Even my parents?

My first record when I was young was Showaddywaddy - 'Let's go for the little one .. dadadaDA ... under the moon of love'. Oh good lord.

Also, I tried body popping at discos for a while in the eighties (we got in by sending my mate in first, who could grow a moustache). "Chaka Khan .. Ch-Ch-Ch-Chaka Khan" I was very crap at it. It genuinely makes me cringe to think back. A friend has old footage of me doing it at a wedding, and regularly blackmails me with it.

That's your lot. I think I've humiliated myself enough now.

/edit - oh, and Travbot - there's nothing wrong with liking Kraftwerk.

Hair, oh the hair

Gel, what the watermelon was that all about. Its like at the end of the eighties they had all this gel. like some kind of EU gel lake (swamp) that they had to get rid of before it set or went off or whatever. I swear, I used to have so much of that crap in my hair I could have been hit by a football sized meteorite and now even known.

I have blocked out the styles so I can tell yo unothing about them I'm afraid

Well I firmly stand by my liking of them
but I'm told it's horrific to like the Pet Shop Boys.

Not a gayer neither.

Though my girlfriend thinks so now that I showed her my collection.

Those of you who complain that they used to like 'A' music, but now like 'B' shouldn't be embarresed
it not old tastes being bad, it's Evolution. Sure, some of you are evolving into Morons, but hey, it's who you are.

first comedy show i went to see...
...was Russ Abbott. Used to love him when I was wee.

And Roy Walker was his warm up act.

Sad. But I met Bella Emberg in the chippy afterwards.

Hawaii Five-O, Jack Parnell Orchestra....
...yes, it had Black Beauty on the other side, and a picture sleeve. No idea where it it is now though.

I used to fancy Debbie Gibson you know. Which way for immolation through shame?

A tragic child of the early ninties

Oh Lord, just remembered some other things....
"Kylie's Lucky 7 Megamix" by "UK Mixmasters"

NOTHING would get me jiving as a four year old, than THIS record. It was a mix up of every Kylie hit (to that point) edited with a tin-opener and some masking tape. Truly crap and unforgivable... Hit me... go on, hit me.....

The first record "I" ever bought however was a few years later, it was the $%£%^$£ Mr Blobby single and the vinyl was coloured pink with yellow spots. (Yes my family were still buying vinyl singles from "ourprice" as late as 1993)

terrible trainers
In the early nineties I went on a school football trip to Cork to which I took a brand spanking new pair of 'converse' trainers- except these were M&S rip-offs which were entirley made up of the American flag. Yes, one half of the trainer formed the stripes, the other half the goddam stars.
Whilst wandering about our holiday park with my chums, another group of school kids decided they wanted a scrap with us. For reasons unbeknown to me I was singled out for a good shoeing and it may have been something to do with one of the scrotes saying to a few of the others 'Ha! Look at his trainers!' then proceeding to kick my bloody head in.
I'm not sure the Guns N Roses bandana on my head helped either.
They must have been bad trainers as none of my mates helped me- I truly paid for childhood bad taste.

This one got passed round my dad's office a bit:
I went to the bog in a local pub with my dad, aged about 6 and saw a vending macine with lots of pretty colours and names of flavours on the outside. My then fragile un-corrupted mind instictivley asked my father for two english pounds to purchase what I percieved to be sweeties from this mysterious mechanical vending contraption.
Needless to say, I will never ever use flavoured condoms EVER. Even if it means going without.

Bad music taste
Oh, the crap I would listen to when I was young - Weird Al (before I even knew many of the songs he'd parody), the Monkees, and the crap Chicago of the 80's.

No apologies for lack of length.

Very bad taste
I can think of something from my childhood with a very bad taste indeed. The piss I did into my hand and drank to see what it tasted like.

Although it wasn't as bad as the shit I scraped out of my own arsehole and tried. It tasted like shit. So I smeared it all over the pages of my sister's Ladybird books.

When I was younger
I really LOVED PJ and Duncan.

Now I am very ashamed of this fact.

Better watch out they're after you...

Somehow i think i got punished for this
The white knee high pop sock with a blue and white terry cloth mini dress and black patent shoes. I wore that for my 1st communion, needless to say I chose the outfit myself.
Maybe god decided to punish me because a few hours later, we went to a horse race type of thing in a field, and I got run over by a horse.
