"We were just innocents doing no harm at all and only tried to protect our precious clothing from being ruined. That jam gig was actually at the start of 1982, the start of The Gift tour."

Motown replied to Andrew McCarthy's item Where should i put my spare wheel !!
"In my opinion the leg shield is the perfect position for your spare. My problem with inline carriers is that they completely change how you mount a scooter. In affect you have to throw your leg over the seat like a motorbike not cool.
Second they d…"

    Short Story

    There she was just walking down the street and I could see that she wasn’t just carrying but that she was loaded and if I could see it, in her hunched shoulders and deep thrust pocketed hands, then so could anybody else who had an ounce of intelligence and two seconds of experience. This street was full of people like that and most of them you wouldn’t cross the road to piss up their legs if you were a dog, because the general rule of the sea you swam in was that if somebody didn’t want to roll you then they wanted to bust you and that was okay because everybody understood.
