Into the red

Shopping. Eugh. Save me from those emporia of tat. Those dunghills of merch. Those dark satanic mills!

No, shops and "retail parks" are clearly the devil's work and best shunned. But some kinds of shopping I can tolerate. For example, the punk-funk band Shopping dipping into the red in east London last month....

Don't make him upset

If he doesn't get his daily ration of grindcore he'll only get angry ....

Sorry for the Crass-posting ...

Don't get angry, don't get cross .... just posting the Heartfield/Hamilton-esque wonder that is the cover of Crass's lovely Stations LP.

Yeah, it's a really nice piece of work from Gee Vaucher. Eat your hearts out you major-label punk bands with your crappy posed shots of moody group members.

Anyway sorry for the Crass-posting! And if you'd like to get off this mailing - you can't! You can't unsubscribe, you fucker! You cunt, you fucking tool of the establishment. Listen, there ain't no unsubscribe button in this world, no! They've fucking got you. With their mailing lists, their pop-ups too. No unsubscribe, no unsubscribe. There's no unsubscribe, no unsubscribe. But don't listen to what they say. They ain't got me. They ain't got me ....

Er, sorry! Came over all Steve Ignorant there for a moment ...
