Not that I wish to upset the apple cart as I genuinely like Partridge and I loved New Order, Hacienda etc - I am not in conflict with the late Tony Wilsons of this world and even appreciate their maverick quality - but there is quite a lot of what Michael says which makes sense to me. Here is the controversial point. I don't mean to upset fans or the people involved but I was watching an interview on stage between Armando Ianucci and Steve Coogan and I reckon they are like the living Tony Wilsons. It is all a bit "moi" whereas people like Kenny Williams were all a bit "me" and that is what I am.
A bit "me" rather than a bit Kenny. I prefer the mes to the mois as I would do being a me myself which is neither a great thing nor an awful one. It just is. For the record, I see McLaren and Lydon as having been between mes and mois so actually more attractive than mois although both being Aquarian (and me is an Aquarian ascendant), they fought like ferrets in a sack by being too peculiarly similar and one can do without such aggro can't one. They were best combined. I do do nuances. Nuances is what I do do. That is why I am the crazy man I am. I know my vibes because I know nothing else. Bez? On his own planet, love him. I saw a lot of nice nudes on their stage. Then he single handedly f**ked fracking.

The fantastic thing about this one other than it is glorious is that it is pretentious but utterly from the roots of his soul. It is a veneer in an artistic sense which he knew and created and yet it isn't a veneer of him. It is what he was. I liked him.
Let's let in the ladeez, Viv W is between moi and me too. Sorry luv, you so want to be a moi but you are "me-ish" luvlier.
