Re: (TV) Quotes About Television
nick's post earlier wherein hitchcock is quoted as saying rew ruined the
band is really both obnoxious & funny cos without rew, i'd have to say
hitchcock's a pretentious arch geek who churns out what he calls
"surrealism", but what i call high school "poetry" that is far more
bourgeois & obvious than the worst of dali's worst.
rew's guitars at least gave the shit some stench & bite.
