AND TALKING OF BEING TWENTY FIVE AGAIN…
Yesterday Gary Hill posted video from 1967 video on Facebook in which the late lamented John Peel interviews me for a Dutch TV station about IT, the underground press and The Deviants. Strange to encounter one’s younger self coming back at you. Although I’m surprisingly lucid and even relevant, there are moments when I find the 24 year-old me a little scary. The idealistic determination of this radical youth seems very serious. It was a time, though, before the shitstorm still to come, when so much still seemed possible and the future might really be bright ahead. I guess I had yet to discover how reversals – and ducking and diving to survive them – can make a sense of humor so crucial. (And watch how the sexist egomaniac doesn't let Joy get a word in edgewise.)
