Re: (TV) Re: wire
Oh fantastic. Everything they did before their first split was great. My
favourite? Has to be the 'I Am The Fly' single. 3 or 4 of us in school
always used to get it played at school discos--it was great cos it didn't
just annoy the teachers....it also irritated the rest of the schoolkids--I
suppose we were being childishly elitist but what the hell--great memories.
EVERYONE should own this record(sorry to be a bit fascist about it).
