Subject: And while I'm at it. . . .
Two more things for y'all to gnosh:
1) There is (was?) a mag here in Chi called _Pure_ that not only seemed
to have been run by JBC-heads (can we think of a better name for
ourselves?), but featured lotsa JBC-related material, including
a tip on when Pat'll be in town to record with the Rev. Botus W.
Fleming, and an article by Pat hisself. Ennybody know these
2) More serious: I'm obsessed with the Fall. In fact, one of the great short-
comings of my current e-mail server is its inability to direct my mail
to fall-list at E.S.A. somewhere in the Netherlands. Regardless,
JBC-Fall coincidences never fail to impress. Start with their mutual
use of Mr Legras' artwork. Then go back to, uhn, 1985, is it?
"McGinty thought he could fool the Fall
with his imitation speeds
but he could not know the psychic nose. . . ."
(--"Pat-Trip Dispenser," M.E. Smith, et al)
Pat? Trip dispenser? Surely he couldn't mean. . . ? I asked Pat
last time he was in town: "Is 'Pat-Trip Dispenser' about you?"
The cryptic response: "Well, Smith does shout 'McGinty!' at the end. And
'Southern Mark Smith' was released the week before." (Or was it
the week after? I can't remember.)
So: What's this "McGinty" stuff? Was this two bands slaggign each other
off on vinyl? Was Pat bonking Brixie? (After all, we all know how
much he likes American women.) Were he and Smith just havin' fun?
There's something here. I know it. Anybody have a good NME/MM/Sounds
file from the time? I suppose it's too much to hope that the UK
version of Nexis carries those. Sigh.
Theories solicited. Facts preferred.
