this, a fair bit of recent stuff was in there eg Robbie Williams with abou 2

However there was one entry that stood out and nearly kicked you in the
teeth it was so surprising.....................That entry??

Beware of the flowers cos I'm sure they're gonna get you yeah!  Brilliant. I
bet an Otway list got together and organised this.

Nick  ps Otway/Barrett played onOld Grey Whistle Test at the time of the
first album. Barrett had one small amplifier. It packed up half way through
a song and they just walked off. They were great.
