Ian Watson quizes Supergrass, 2nd March 1996

Ian Watson quizzes Supergrass, 2nd March 1996.

It’s Wolverine, the wife swapper from Primrose Hill and the other one.

God this is so dull but then it’s probably not meant to be read by 38 year old men. The only piece of trivia to be gained from this is that Phil Jupitas used to be the warm-up man for The White Room and that Danny thinks “It’s quite a beautiful, fascinating thing watching a turd come out of someone’s arse”. And that, presumably, from the man when he hasn’t snorted a blizzard of cocaine. Man those parties with Sadie must have been positively Bacchanalian.

I’m sure Google’s going to make me regret typing that combination of words into the blog.

Dave Jennings reviews the singles of the week, 2nd March 1996

[AMP trolling Jennings...AMP trolling Jennings]

If Taylor wanted to punch his face in when he saw his old Singles of the Week column photo then Jennings will surely be searching his house trying to find his knuckledusters when he sees this.

Not much else to say except that I agree with single of the week. Love the Clouds Taste Metallic album that This Here Giraffe comes from. Remember discussing the album rather drunkenly with Brian Molko at a showbiz party I somehow found myself at back in 1997…the preceding track is called Placebo Headwound fact fans! And then I asked him for some Rizlas and, very graciously he obliged, although did question why I needed 3. Hmmm…

Have also added a scan of the Fiddling While Romo Burns tour dates to the Plastic Fantastic interview which I came across inside this issue. There’s been a few, pretty lengthy comments added since it first went up so if you’re interested the link to the post is here.

I’ve stared too long at Gallagher’s ugly Arthur Daley meets the missing link visage tonight to have anything much to say about this but I did laugh my head off at the irony of Jonathan King’s opinion being sought about Jackson’s notorious paedo-friendly Earth Song performance though. And there’s still time to get those Knighthood forms filled in.

Hi to all those visiting for the first time from the B3ta boards. The honour is all mine. Cheers!
