The Hounds of Love

Listening to Dead Or Alive.


We all came to Pontefract, so Mum could spend the day with Jack. I visited Danyel ‘Flash’ Gordon. I tape-recorded his new Kate Bush LP: The Hounds Of Love / The Ninth Wave.

It’s great! I especially like ‘Waking The Witch’, ‘Cloudbusting’ and ‘The Big Sky'.


Flash’s also made a great recording / song, using taped samples of Malcolm McLaren records, called ‘Fuck Off, Flash Gordon’ – of which I taped various versions. Snazzy, jazzy, tazzy and spazzy!

Good old, Flash. See you in two weeks, old chap!

OLD DIARY ENTRIES…

This time 2 years ago:
‘I got Return of the Jedi Weekly 15.’


This time last year:
‘Daphne and Giles have come down from Yorkshire to stay. They’ll be managing the pub while we go to Majorca. Trouble is, Jack’s very sick now, isn’t he?’
