MES 'Quote Unquote'

More of in 85?
24-hour TV, less toadies, pirate radio, original ideas, friendly landlords.

Less of in 85?
Top 20 groups with the aura of AIDS. Also less careerists and more genuine purists.

Best thing that could happen to you?
Win a million pounds out of nowhere, be allowed to continue, write clearly and still the best.

Most influential artist?
The one who had the biggest success in Autumn 84.

All 'ANTI' lunatics, ie Townshend, Stoppard, CND, and all that encroach on personal choice.

British material, re-birth of 'English' reggae, quality of music, quality of life, reduced ambition; to expose rock TV as HOAX and alter mind-state of music appreciation. All the best.

Vulturous in the aftermath
