Television - Marquee Moon
I was faced with a choice at a difficult age. Would I write a book? Or should I take to the stage? But in the back of my head I heard distant feet. Che Guevara and Debussy to a disco beat.

Well I hope that Undertones - Teenage Kicks gets some more votes to make it into the HOF. It was annoying when Black Sabbath - War Pigs missed out on the HOF by one week. This almost happened with Nick Cave not so long ago!
