You'll Always Find Me In The Kitchen At Parties /Jona Lewie

Do you remember when this was an anthem? Or was that just my small crowd of friends?

The lyric, the message couldn’t have been more universal. Who the fuck doesn’t hang out in kitchens at parties, or in general. It’s always nice when there’s a lounge, sitting area or den attached to/part of the kitchen but if not, then all bets are the kitchen is the place.

To be honest, I don’t recall if this was even issued in the US. If so, it would have only been on a promo 12″, but I seriously doubt it.

Jona Lewie stuck it out for a long while, having a one off hit with/as Terry Dactyl & The Dinosaurs, predating punk conveniently as part of pub rock, then stumbling onto the Stiff roster. Perfect timeline.

Never a mention of this one in any of those Best Singles Ever lists, just goes to show you their value.
