I like that Nik Cohn.
Maybe cos Stones, Led Zep... Eagles etc were so ridiculous in themselves and in their excess it's difficult to add much by making stuff up. Anyone got any tips for things that buck the trend?
Thought it was Queen... must be an urban myth though cos of the way it changes from one band to another.All I can think is the party thrown by the Stones (I think in another version of the story it was Free, but maybe they both did it?) where they had midgets employed to mingle amongst the guests carrying platters of cocaine at ideal sniffing height - which Robert Rankin bettered in one of his novels, about a Grand Millennium Ball, where the midgets had their heads shaved and went around with lines laid out directly on their naked scalps.
The same book mentions "human ashtrays" but doesn't go into details.

Hey jenks you'll know this -
I downloaded DH Lawrence in his entirety on my kindle for 2 quid. I got it for the critical writing/essays but I thought I might read one of his novels, or at least have a bash
Any recommendations on which one to bash?
Sounds about right, I seem to remember dying really slowly for the rest of the book.Thanks!
I started reading sons and lovers last night and i ploughed through all the boring stuff about the mining mis en scene and my brain's ears pricked up when he started talking about how the mother's life was depressing and looking at the rest of her life she felt like she was being suffocated.
