Or maybe it’s just that the above was The Child Our Parents Wanted Us To Be.
Meanwhile being deprived of rock & roll adulation still festers. The following was posted on the blog of Urbanmutation, who has exactly the opinion we should value…
“Last night should have been the reunion gig of the Kings of Oblivion line-up of the Pink fairies at the Roundhouse in London. Unfortunately, Larry Wallis buggered his back up (that’s the official reason at least) and so the gig had to be shelved. It was an especially bad blow as Mick Farren had been booked to come over and do a few numbers. So if the gig had gone ahead it may have been of mythic stature, the kind of gig that people talk about for years to come.”
And just to prove that I am really freefalling, I have written a lively defense of Fox and 24 in this week’s LA CityBeat.

CRYPTIQUE – I don’t feel so well.

I suppose it was kinda inevitable that I spent a goodly part of the day just passed wondering why the hell I wasn’t on stage as advertised at the Roundhouse in London, and reflecting (with a measure of suitably narcissistic self-pity) the close to absurdist sequence of events that had conspired to transform this unique opportunity to close what would have been a nearly lifelong circle into an embarrassingly pear-shaped debacle, and pondering what possible ways might be found to restore collective credibility and attempt some kind of substitute rematch, because, having had a whiff of the possible fun and frolic, I would sure like to pull off some modestly spectacular performance in the old country before this year is out.

Meanwhile the excellent Valerie sends a report from the BBC about how the poppies are blooming in Afghanistan, but the collective prejudice of multiple governments continue to prevent anything useful being done with the potential opium crop.
