Nostalgia isn’t what it used to be . . . . . .

Idly browsing the internet I Googled Bicycle Thieves, a Didsbury band from the 70’s, as for some reason I was thinking about an old friend Stuart James who was a guitar player I used to work with. Whilst doing so, I came across this article by Paul Morley who whilst praising Stuart’s band says: Manchester is well-known for producing tasty ultra-competent, deadly boring rock bands (Sad Cafe and Harpoon spring to mind)

I was the guitar player with Harpoon . . .. .

I’m happy with tasty ultra competent but deadly boring … ah well if you’ re going to be criticised then it might as well be by Paul Morley….

Mind you he also slags off the new Manchester Review . . which was somewhat unkind

By Rowland Jones

Jones spends his time writing & performing his songs, writing to the papers, doing illustrations for Zuiderlucht and browsing idly around the net for considerably longer than any adult should . . .

Any thoughts?
