I’m gonna buy new swimming shorts


Posted by Bingo Trappers | Posted in News | Posted on 30-11-2013

Straight from the airport, Loretta, Roelie and I drove with my friend Luigi along the beautiful Adriatic coast from Bari to Monopoli. On the right there was dry brown soil with very old and twisted olive trees, and on the left there was this enticing Mediterranean ¬†scenery of rocks, beaches and, of course, the sea. It was so goddamned hot there that the first thing we wanted to do on that sunday in August was to jump into the water and stay there as long as possible. But I couldn’t find my swimming shorts anywhere when packing for this trip.

Somewhere in the old centre of Monopoli we finally found a shop that was open, and I’m not gonna show you a picture on where I’m actually wearing the green swimming shorts I found there. ¬†Instead of that, a picture of a Bingo Trapper and Almost Halloween Time Records-boss in Alberobello, world famous home of the trulli, a congregation of very old small white houses that reminded me a bit of the Smurfs-village. And a picture of the Bingo Trappers-show in Aquaviva della Fonti, on our last evening in wonderful Puglia, and that’s a region in the south of Italy…

Oh, and I added two appropriate songs as well. ‘Solar Holiday’ (called track 6 here – my mistake), from Nine Songs of the Handsome Pouch, and a brand new acoustic version of ‘Water Boy’, originally from the Girlie Food-cassette (’96). Guess it’s a long time since you’ve heard that one…
