THE LAST DAY OF JULY 1988
‘Superfly Guy’ – S-Express
PARENTS GONE TO WALES.
FLASH AND I WATCHED WUTHERING HEIGHTS ON TV.
WENT AND WALKED TO MAGAZINE LANE PARK NEAR B.M.W.’S. DRINKING SHERRY ON ROUNDABOUT.
STARTED WATCHING THE BISHOP’S WIFE.
‘Love Will Tear Us Apart’ – SWANS
‘LOVE WILL TEAR US APART’ BY THE SWANS is my single most favourite record at the moment. INDEEDY!
JULY is hard. And sad. It has been a trying time, and never dull. ONLY IN LITTLE BITS.
Flash … Kat … Marilyn Monroe … Doctor Who … SWANS … Siouxsie … Stump … Transvision Vamp … money … Wuthering Heights…
I HAVE SURVIVED ANOTHER MONTH. JUST!
What is the end result?
AUGUST IS ON ITS WAY…
A horned beast with twitching talons and a snorting equine face that speaks of Satan and his domain…
