Primal Scream - Loaded

OLD PA'S WEDNESDAY CLUB

TAIPEI

How Tall is that Tower Max?


PRIMAL SCREAM - Loaded - Live (1991) 

I was on my way to Taipei to assist Saudia Airlines Cargo Department, to cut over to an Automated System. There was a welcome stop over in Bangkok so I could get a few alcoholic refreshments as Saudia was a dry flight. I probably had about a two hour connection time to Taipei. Enough for a few. It was then a short flight to Taiwan.

I was going to be met at Taipei Airport and taken to my Hotel. I, as always asked them to get me a cheap Hotel so that I could save money and have more to spend on local entertainment.

I waited for over an hour and nobody turned up, so I decided to get a bus to the Centre of Town and then get a taxi to the Hotel. It was proving to be very difficult as nobody seemed to speak English. However, I eventually arrived at the Hotel. I was shown to my room down a corridor in dim red lights. Very tasteful I thought.

I immediately phoned down for some beer and a few minutes later there was a knock at the door. An older woman was there with a very young and beautiful girl wearing a Suzy Wong dress. It took me a few moments to realise that I was being offered this beautiful girl. I declined the offer and decided to drink my beer and watch a bit of local TV. I nearly fell off my beer, when I found out that all the channels were heavy duty Porno. It seemed to cater for the whole spectrum of tastes. Gay Boys in Bondage, Busty Bimbos in Heat etc. etc.

It then donned on me, Red dimmed light Corridor!. The Porno TV!. I was given a room in a Brothel.

Later I went down to a club which was underneath the Hotel. It was my first experience of Karaoke. I sat at a table and before long I had several beautiful girls sitting with me and before I knew it I had a crate of beer and I was sharing it with my new friends. We were having a great old laugh!

After sometime it hit me, how much was this costing?. I got the bill and it was very, very expensive. What the hell, I paid for the beer I may as well drink it and retire to my room when it was finished.

I woke up the next morning with a raging hangover, I was fully clothed and lying across the bed. It then dawned on me where I had been but I had no recollection of what had happened. I fully expected to have lost a kidney or even worse, my wallet missing (well I am a Scotsman). But thankfully all was intact.

I made my way to the office feeling like death, thinking I had a lucky escape. Another valuable lesson learned. Another drink too many!

Don't get loaded when you are abroad and alone.

To be Continued.....

A room in a brothel? Crates of beer shared with the ladies? Looking forward to Pt. 2!

Hahaha.

After an experience in Soho...which I will not get into...I never bought a drink for any woman that approached me in a bar I wasn't familiar with.

Once outside of the train station at Frankfurt...I was captured by the sidewalk barker for this bar. He was relentless...fine I'll have a beer. As soon as sat down this woman comes to me and wants me to buy her a beer. After several terse NOs. They sent a dude over. Ha.
No he didn't get a beer either.

I was actually listening to Loaded when I opened this...it came up on the phone. Love it.

Oh my life! What a state to get yourself into. I'm so naive, I can see this happening to me. Infact I remember a night out in London, it was very late and despite it being the Big Smoke, most pubs were closed or closing. I was with a friend and we didn't want to go 'clubbing', just for a nightcap. We were around Leicester Square and I asked someone if there was anywhere open to have a drink. The guy was in a suit and said that he was heading to a place he 'knew'. After about a 10 minute walk we came to a door guarded by a guy with a thick neck which grumbled something in a thick accent, could have sworn he was ex Russian Special Forces. We walked up a flight of stairs with 'interesting' ladies up the sides and with the obligatory pink lights. I was on about defcon 3 at this point as this didn't look like a normal watering hole. We all sat on a couch in what looked like a large living room, surrounded by colourful clientele predominately heavy petting, again not the standard pub etiquette. It was only when a scantily clad lady took our drinks order, the suit guy spoke for us as he said they only did spirits and wine by the bottle, that I realised I should raise my defcon level to 5. We were in a back street brothel in Soho. The suit guy took a wad of twenties to buy a couple bottles of red and said not to worry, just get the next two. Three girls came back with the bottles and 6 glasses and proceeded to sit next to us, closer than close. I had a girlfriend and the proximity of the ladies leg to mine and the sight of her boob was making my upper lip very sweaty. My friend and were clearly uncomfortable, we manage a glass of red whilst fended off any advances. The suit guy was luckily a bit worse for a wear and a tad busy as we made our excuses to leave. We hastily made our way down past ladies by the stairs and manage to negotiate out exit with Dolph Lundgren by the door to escape to the next night bus home. Naive and clearly out of our depth, 20 years on I would be the same if not worse.
