If there was an article of clothing called a Heston what would it be?

I think this is Heston’s motto:
My new motto is "web page not available?"

I feel that there is a fascistic element, for example, in the Rolling Stones . . .

I've studied the phenomenon of neo-provincialism in self-isolating online communities but this place takes the fucking cake.

Ok, I visited. I have never heard of this bloke and he is supposedly the most famous tweeter in the world?

As a pop song it's ok. I think Mika has done better. A pretty tune but the lyrics are a bit shit imo.

His tunes get in your head.

"Grace Kelly" is a great pop song.

It's 1982 your latest album Combat Rock is just dropping out of the charts. It's reached number 2 in the UK and number 7 in the US. Your band is at its most successful /commercial phase to date. Where do you go from here?

Certainly not pissing about with a silent movie. They should have took a few months off before the US Festival. Then a UK tour in June/July 1983 to bed Pete Howard in, promoting their new live album recorded on their short tour of Texas earlier in the year. Sept/Oct record a new album for release in early '84, preceded by a new double a-side single This Is England/The Bottom Line featuring Don Letts on guest backing vocals and percussion. Proceed to global domination and do not pass go.

Must Bernie Rhodes fall in 82?
Authority is supposedly grounded in wisdom, but I could see from a very early age that authority was only a system of control and it didn't have any inherent wisdom. I quickly realised that you either became a power or you were crushed

Bernie had a lot of good points, they just needed to know when to listen and when to tell him to fuck off.
