Cheers Mr Q for a full and frank response...I like the cut of your jib! Yes conversation with Monte Conner often takes unusual twists but it's never taken a turn in the I-Ten direction! Did you know, however, that Monte is a fully fledged early seventies buff? What he doesn't know about Grand Funk Railroad and Frijid Pink is not worth mentioning...to be honest I share the same interest in some of that twaddle and it's an amusing sight to see the both of us engrossed in conversation comparing the delights of Budgie with, say, Sir Lord Baltimore.
As for Roadrunner itself I've been bringing some lighter, shall we say more cerebal, fare in here for about a year but so far nothings shaking which is something of a disapointment but that's life and it has to be lived. Still the mandate is alive for change and who knows what might happen when the Toilet Boys actually get their record made and shoot lazer beams sky high. I know one thing, it'll be a hoot if nothing else.
Hey nice shout for the Mother Station...one of my all time greatest disapointments in what one might term my 'professional' career. Hugely talented bunch with one of the globes greatest, if anonymous, vocalists- Susan Powell (she went on to join 'alt' favourites Afghan Wigs!) whilst superstar guitar slinger Gwin Spencer moved into TV work (playing guitar on celebrity talk shows) although she's got a new project in the pipeline which might see her receive the star like attention she deserves.
Meanwhile Derek Shulman continues to fend off offers by 'mad' (and they don't come much madder) Gentle Giant fans to reform and cut some new tracks...sad. Very sad. Hey, maybe John Kalodner could sign them to Portrait? Someone told me he's recently signed something even more ludicrous....but I can't for the life of me remember. Is'nt there a law against such stupid tomfollery?
