T-Rex '75...Good Missionaries...ACR...Mud...By God, sir, you are Stephen Ives of The Daily Mirror and I claim my £10!! Already got the Pop Group 'Newpaper', thank you very much! Did you get the Slits/Pop Group joint poster? Ha! I thought not...bally Johnny-Come-Latelies. I met Viv Albertine once and, by jove, she was a comely young filly! Get a job, you young rascal! Up the Empire! Gawd bless the queen!
I am jealous of that T-Rex scarf, though. Didn't you write 'Bring back T-Rextasy' on your pencil-case once?

Nah - I write for the Sport these days - much better editorial freedom... ain't got the Slits/Pop Group poster - but do have a cool 'Slits in da jungle' one on fetching yellow paper - as produced by Bristol Students Uni for a gig - when - WHO KNOWS - anything pre-1987 is complete foreign territory for me !?

Not sure about the pencil case (maybe you were thinking of my fetching school folder covered in old-pages of Sniffin Glue (easy mistake sir!) I however do still have some posters from circa-73 bedroom wall - of a fetching tie-dyed bolan - in Les-Paul grimmace (god bless the little lad) - also have sheet music for Telegram Sam - that must be worth a straigh-swap for the Bon Jovi clock! I will even throw in a Lynard Skynard and Deep Purple poster - just to show what a fair guy I can be !

Hmmm. You seem like a reasonable chap for a youngster, but that Bon Jovi clock's been in the family for an awful long time....how can I be sure you won't flog it up the Portabello Road, or shamelessly parade it on Antiques Roadshow. Mind you, that Bolan scarf sounds tempting. I'll see what the wife says. Bit of an heirloom, that.
A "Les Paul grimace", eh? Heh. Genius, but I can see why you write for The Sport, old boy.
