I too much Grolsch, your head Will Hurt. More than with many other beers, I might point out to the sceptical. Grolsch has a very attractive old-fashioned bottle, and its bizarre name leads the Unwary to imagine that it must be the product of generations of dedicated Germanic brewing obsessives. Well, it's not. It's Dutch and it will make your Head Hurt.

Yes, they were Bloody Awful at the Albert Hall, weren't they? A rented sitar! Sophie the cellist, who ought to know, said that the string section (yes, "string section") had been really badly arranged. My guess is that it must have been the work of Andy "I'm A Genius And My Swedish Wife Has A Record Contract Of Her Own, Thank You Very Much" Bell. Good old Andy. It was like watching Free! Rock shat.

The Black Watch come from L.A. We have got to know them pretty well since we met on tour in 1989. They're good people. They opened for us at The Roxy in June 1992. J'Anne Jacobi, their violin vixen, played with us that night on Racheland , which REALLY dragged out the Velvet Underground influences, as you can imagine. I'm glad they gave me a credit. I'd be gladder if they gave me a copy of the LP. We would like to play with them again in America.

Strangelove are grand. They are

Alex Lee - Guitar, songwriter, Provisional Member Of The JBC In Perpetuity.
John Langley - Drums, ex The Blue Aeroplanes, brother of Gerard, all round leading human being.
Patrick Duff - Singer, not really as miserable as all that...
Joe Allen - Bass, ex-Levitation, played all the bass on Condition Mandrax.
Julian Poole - Guitar, played lead with the JBC on 1990 tour of USA and Canada.
I've seen them twice on the recent U.K. tour and they were very good. A severely cranked Mulreany, however, watching the London show, pronounced: "It's fuckin' Bauhaus, innit?" I don't know about any touring plans for Strangelove in the US. Sorry.
