Hippo weeknotes, volume five


04 June 2024

Week five already! How did that happen?

This week…

The city

Birmingham is much changed. I’m from around these parts; I was born near Walsall in the Black County and visited Birmingham a lot as a teenager when shopping for tie-dye Nirvana t-shirts.

There’s clear space and lovely, clean buildings around the centre. Walking up from the station towards the library, I found the facades of the buildings unrecognisable.

It’s posh round 'ere, aie it?

Track of the Week

GMF by John Grant (and Sinéad O’Connor). I can’t get it out of my head.
