The first LP I remember listening to when I was young was The Rocky Horror Picture Show. I knew every word to the whole musical and was completely fascinated by the album sleeeve art work.Dr Frank'n'Furter- Tim Curry in fishnets enthralled me! It was all so dark and sexy and illicit.
When I was twelve my father took me to see it for the first time at Founders Theatre. We got all dressed up - me in a bowler hat and Dad in a tuxedo- we brought along props and danced the Time Warp.
But it was completely different to what I imagined. I had written my own story out of those songs. The movie was weird and a bit silly.
Rocky Horror is still one of my favourite albums. I love how cheesey and mad it is. And now I do like the movie... but I wish I could remember the version I wrote in my own head.
