Here's Grace

A number of years ago there was a stall in Glasgow's Barras market which sold huge posters which were designed to be put on advertising hoardings by Mr Bill Posters. It may well still be there for all I know.

Anyhow, I had a pretty much life sized poster of Grace Jones which hung proudly on my bedroom wall for  a good few years and which scared the bejesus out of any tradesman popping in to carry out some maintenance!

All of which is somewhat of a preamble to sharing with you a couple of tracks  from her 1981 Nightclubbing album on the Island label.

Grace Jones - Pull Up to the Bumper

Grace Jones - Nightclubbing


  1. A life-size Grace Jones on your bedroom wall? How did you sleep, man? How did you sleep???

  2. The life size poster is a somewhat terrifying thought. Fine pair of tunes though.

  3. As in above comments, I was just thinking what a great burglar deterrent the poster would be. Every home should have one...
    I remember having the cassette of that album and playing it on my Walkman when I was at college, oh how that puts it in a timeframe! It was an odd addition to my collection at the time which was mostly post-punk/early goth/tribal stuff. But somehow it fitted. Still sounds good.

  4. It was only very recently that I realised what Pull To The Bumper is actually about.

    I was such an innocent child...
