‘Americanos’ – Holly Johnson


‘HA-HA!  APRIL FOOLS!’-type thing.


We begin the month with ALCOHOL.


I ventured into Wisbech today, as it is a Saturday, with a head full of FLASH, MAGGIE and RAQUEL.  I got the Berwin photos developed and they’re ‘VERY GOOD’.  I think.


I got the ‘Love Train’ 12-inch by Holly Johnson. 

His new single, ‘Americanos’ is good too. 

I’ll get that when the price comes down.


I bumped into Legs and we got very plastered in the park with a big bottle of lager.  Loads of horrid new G ‘n’ R fans about.  LITTLE TWATS.  They all seem to be fresh from the packet and act like they’re ‘fans’ of Ash.  It was nice to see Ash, though.  He’s fine and we all chatted lots.  Ash + Legs asked me to go out to The Angel tonite, saying they’d missed me.  I told them I was skint (I have a bit of money but not enough to get me back in and out of town and then to buy myself and others drinks).  Very kindly, they promised to ‘keep me merry’, but, alas, I’ve been unable to go.  And I feel so disappointed in myself.  Oh well.
