    I was actually going to say "a Labour government"

    No need for a duel with Simon though. He's one of my favourite writers on music. (Which obviously doesn't mean I think he's always right.)

    lol brilliant Version.

    I have to admit I'm starting to think that I will never really get the 'nuum. It's beyond the cultural barrier for me.

    Instead I want a picture of everyone so I can see if they look like how I imagine them.

    I'm not sure how mindbending they are and I dunno about a top five, but there are some really good ones out there, particularly on Gravity's Rainbow. That znore one on Yoyodyne is one of my favourites.

    For the record, I hate merchandise and t-shirts like the above. There are people who get stuff like V-2 rockets tattooed on them as well. Awful.

    I fucked up Blissblog's list by putting Warhead when it should have been Bambaata.

    DJ Trace was deejaying - and "Bambaataa", one of the few contenders for a Tune during that dismal era, came on for the fourth time that night and i found myself MCing - not on stage i hasten to add! - in the midst of the crowd, inaudible to everyone i'm sure, or at least i hope - MC-ing over the stiff as a stillborn kitten beat:

    "Stagnant music! Stagnant music! Acrid Bassline, another Acrid Bassline!"

    I did actually feel close to tears.
