Proper sad about John Sullivan.

Everyone knows "Only Fools & Horses" but I really rated something he did called "Roger Roger" which didn't really grab much attention.

havent got an album - but still have 3 singles - Oh Bondage - Identity and Germ Free Adolescense - I dont think Polystyrene's lifestyle was particularly riotous in her post punk days - she was into a very spititual existence - what with Ari Up from the Slits and now Poly gone theres not so many leading ladies from Punk around anymore -makes me feel old!

Brilliant Chewy - bring them along to the RPM club next wednesday at the G & G. It's really good fun - bring along your tunes on Vinyl and write down the play list and Tambo does the rest et voila! There was even dancing! Funny dancing

Old? Old? We haven't even reached our prime.

Genuinely upset about Seve. One of the greats. So sad to see such a vital man taken too soon.
