Theory of: Jez DeCarlo

‘I Walk the Line’ – Alien Sex Fiend

No matter what I say or however much I try to deny that part of myself, Jez DeCarlo always exists within me.  He is the wilder me; the boozy, woman-loving me; the me that goes into The Angel and goes to gigs and wild parties.  I am glad of it, too.  It won’t ‘leave’ me for some time, of course, this other persona; not until those wild, uncultivated passions are finally curbed and possibly replace with high society and la-de-das.  I wonder sometimes.  I would really love to crimp and back-comb these greasy, no-longer-dreaded locks; shave the beard and these sideburns; and instead, put on make-up, the tailcoat, the frills, studs, gloves and boots of my 1988 existence, just to feel something of that youth and dynamism crawling back into me; that ‘different’ youth.  I’d love to be able to tell myself I’m still capable.  We’ll see.  One day.
