GIVE ME BACK ME BRAIN!

Hurrah, it's:



DUFFO!




Yes, but did you know he once made a single with Billy Curry and Warren Cann ("Watcha, Warren!") of Ultravox!...? Hmmm: funny, that seems to have been airbrushed out of UV conceptual continuality by middle-aged Glamanistas...

Always loved that picture of him with his head wrapped up in cling-film (one of me special prizes to anyone who can dig up a jpeg or a scan of that). Y'know, I wonder if he's secretly Nash the Slash too...

Fucking Duffo! Brilliant. On Ebay his singles go for absolutely fuck all.
I think Nash The Slash was actually Bobby Gee from The Fizz.
PS Watcha Warren!

I love the fact that Duffo gave Tony Parsons an exploding cigarette: how brilliant is that?

He should've put a whoopee cushion under Burchill too while he was at it: NME's "hip young gunslingers": pah!

For those of you who don't know who/what we're talking about, Duffo was a shite late-era Aussie Glam wannabe who moved to the UK and tried (unsuccessfully) to ride the Punk Boom. The early Eighties found him hanging out w/ the Blitz boys/Nu-Roms, desperately trying to ignite something that might resemble a career. Wish I'd seen him live now.

When he was younger he looked like a Bizarro-World Bowie: "Me am not Jean Genie/me am not let meself go-ohhhh..." or: "Me am only not dancing, John/She not turn me on, no..." etc, etc.
