Whats in the bottom draw

Postby King Of Kings » Sat May 16, 2020 6:53 am

Ok

The Jam did it with About The New idea

So here my Idea. A book by the fans for the fans.

Each person gets one page with space to add one Photo

Its a bit lame, I know, but all you do is list your favourites.

The aim is also to have a section that lists rarities and collectables

What do you think -It would go something like this.

Please add yours if you like

oo I've got on of those pins somewhere. When I started contracting in the early 2000s and having more interviews for jobs than the average chap I took to wearing it in case I might be being interviewd by a secret bunnymen fan and I'd be a shoe in. I don't think anyone even said, hmm, thats an interesting tie pin, when can you start. never mind.

speaking of autographs, after a gig at the royal court I, think, I found myself stood next to Will - I was just hanging around and hadn't noticed he'd come out to sign stuff for people, so when this crowd of peeps went there's just me and him. Couldn't think of anything to say but I had the rerelease of Acvalanche (witht the original version of baseball bill on it) in my hand having just bought it from the merch stand, so I asked him to sign it and he said something about having to go cos 'my missis is waiting' and turned to go, then relented and did the famous siggy thats basically just a wiggly line and dashed off.

oo, I didn't think of electrafixion as a side project, though it has the same number of members as the current lineup, and poltergeist, but less than MK II. I miss these kind of discussions.
