This is for Grace, although I’m not sure she’ll even remember why by now. Hint: The clue’s in the intro.

“We had a plan and it appears to be working. All we have to do now is be brilliant” says Johnny.
Yeah that’s always the tricky part isn’t it?

On the day Jade Goody gets married there’s sage comment from Mr. Agreeable.
“Do you yearn for notoriety? Then you’re probably a c***”
I wonder what the Mark Coyle from 1991 might have written to his future self if this interesting website had been available back then?
Still nothing from any of the former featured c***’s.

So there was this one time…at a Slowdive gig…
where somehow I caught the eye of Rachel during one of the band’s more ethereal instrumental passages and for a second or two we studied each other, something intangible passing between us, and then she turned away with a coquettish smile, borne out of what exactly….embarrassment, flattery, irrepressible derision?

Truth be told this is a pretty uninspiring issue of Melody Maker but there is this, a review of Mercury Rev’s debut, a record that’s brought me immeasurable pleasure over the years and for which I’m grateful to long time friend and sometime commentator Phil for telling me about. The fact that pointless, one hit wonder, girl duo Soho get the featured review spot seems incomprehensible to me – the only reason HippyChick was a hit was because it used a Smiths sample which seemed quite daring and novel back in 1991.
