Clear-Out


1.10am

 

Favourite drink:

I’ve been listening to the Dark Is Desire demos and reading old lyrics.

 

CLEARING ‘THE ROOM’ OUT AT THE MOMENT.

 

‘All Fired Up’ – Pat Benatar



 

ha!  JUST FOUND AN OLD VALENTINE’S CARD.  1985.  IT’S FROM CAROL RANSOME.  REMEMBER HER?  WELL, I’D BEST JUST THROW IT OUT, BUT HERE’S WHAT IT SAYS…

 

‘FROM THE ONE WHO REALLY LOVES YOU,

I LOVED YOU THEN,

I LOVE YOU NOW

AND ALWAYS WILL,

SO PLEASE BE MY VALENTINE…’

 

ooh-la-la!

 

‘Let’s Stay Together’ – Pat Benatar



 

Here’s a bit of unused lyric found on a bit of yellow paper.

 

Rich man, poor man – what are you?

This dying age has a hold on you

Can’t breathe in for petrol fumes

 

I think it’s a forerunner to ‘Tribulation City’.

 

Some other lyrix:

 

Behind the locked door of the morning

When it’s still dark, darker, darker still

Autumn fades and night-time

Chills my – backbone!

 

Found some addresses too, for the likes of Gaby Hill, Windsor House in Richmond and – at last!  I’ve found William’s address.  But is it the correct one?

 

‘Christine’ – Siouxsie & the Banshees



 

Also found some plot outlines for The Situation’s Waxy X-Periment!

 

Yvonne Cracknell’s address, too…

 

Nacker!  Poo!  Widgies!

 

Will We Ever?
