I was sitting at my desk last week when my much younger work colleague Charlotte came back from lunch in a state of high excitement.
‘Omigod!’ she squealed. ‘I’ve just seen Glasvegas in the canteen!’
My immediate reaction was ‘Glaswho?’ And then I quickly realised that I am yet again losing touch with modern popular culture.
Glasvegas for all you other suitably wizened readers are a popular Scottish beat combo who are rather cool and hip with the young music-listening fraternity.
Naturally, since I heard the name Glasvegas I have seen them everywhere – albums reviewed in newspapers, referenced on TV, posters… still haven’t heard their music, though, and I would NEVER be able to recognise them if they sat next to me in the staff canteen!
