Good to hear from Kulkarni regarding this issue in the comments. Here’s the interview that “utterly changed [his] life forever”. Hope it stirs happy memories.

Chris Roberts reviews Disintergration, 6th May 1989

Quite a sniffy review for Disintergration. I always thought this was the last really decent album The Cure made.

This for Steven who runs www.thestoneroses.co.uk to make into another cute little pdf book thing.

I know I’ve been lax again recently with the blog but I’ve had a break through at home with the dark art of wi-fi configuration so hopefully that’ll encourage me to post on a more regular basis.

Look at baby faced Shaun in the photos! No time to read this tonight unfortunately. Is it any good?

This is for Taylor Parkes….”a fucking flute!”  – thanks Taylor, I laughed my head off.

It doesn’t get much more rock and roll than press shots in a freshly plough field propped with a tractor and a German Shepherd now does it? And I’m sure everyone can remember where they were when Fish split with Marillion – the cider flowed freely in the leafier parts of middle England that night I can tell you.

But the last I can remember of Fish was seeing him on telly in a spliff rolling competition with Tony Banks (the M.P. not the exulted Genesis keyboard player) about a hundred years ago.

What is Fish up to today I thought? Well he’s a Sony award winning Radio DJ and has churned out a steady succession of solo records since 1989 to the present. So there you go.

Jonh Wilde interviews House of Love. Melody Maker 28th October 1989.

Another one of those difficult to scan oversize glossy Melody Makers but for House of Love I felt it was worth it.

If I ever meet Guy Chadwick I will ask him – “Is it better to have been loved and to have lost it or to have never been loved at all”. If anyone knows the answer to that question, he does.

Any graphic designers out there might be amused by the awkwardly placed, ‘type on a path’ experimentation of subtitle “Building Sights”. Look at it – surely this was a mistake?
