Well, hello Tasmania! I am, let me say, ASTONISHED that people (well, a person) are buying our stuff so far from home! Hope you like it there.

The "Heaven" bit on Angels is, of course, a total steal from Eraserhead. It was Dooj Wilkinson 's idea, and it fitted perfectly with the mood of the time. There it is.

See also the Twin Peaks reference in Honey on Condition Mogadon. By the way, George, David Lynch and Laurie Anderson use the same pet-psychologist. Dogs on Prozac - it's already happening!
