Check The Guy's Track Record



Anthony H Wilson presenting The Fall live in '88, on The Other Side Of Midnight. A fairly youthful Mark E and the classic Fall line up then play Big New Prinz, my favourite Fall song. Mancabilly. The wobbly nature of the VHS does not detract from the performance- if anything it adds to it. Brix Smith, in frilly green shirt, has gone on to mix in very different circles, as you'll know if you watch daytime fashion makeover TV.

This version, with Michael Clark's dancers is also making the grade. Mancabillyballet.



We are off to see Primal Scream tonight, a friend's birthday night out. Who, on a three date tour, decided that the best date for Manchester would be a Sunday night? Eh? Support is provided by someone called Andrew Weatherall, playing records apparently. Supposed to be quite good. Chances are primal Scream won't play this piece of C86ery..

Did you see M E Smith in yesterday's Guardian? In the "What do I see in the mirror feature in the magazine? He certainly has a well-worn face.

It was rather startling George to see his coupon in the sort of beauty and well being section.

He's got cheeks like rosy apples. According to his Greek relatives.

His blind relatives. Looked more like fusty apples that had been lying in the grass for 5 months.

Actually "Crystal Crescent" is another great contender for your "The B-Side Was Better" - thingy, George ....
