Very nice manners, unlike the back-stabbing interviewer.

Yeah, the infectious disease crack was a cheap shot. Ha ha, get it? You see, it's a rat.

I have seen pics of these same exact guys years ago, running the tourist picture gig. Can't blame 'em for doing a bit of honest work.

One of my favorite movies of all time is Dogs In Space, it's Australian. Another favorite is SLC Punk. Both are well worth watching.

RIP Michael. Ooops, wrong thread. Ah well ... you might enjoy this clip from UK/DK.

I liked the mockumentary Hard Core Logo.

"What's the category?"
"Bad Canadian band names."
"Faster, Leonard Cohen, Kill Kill!"
"MacArthur Parka!"

Where on earth is Ilsington? Somewhere in North Korea, perhaps? Kim Il-Sington?

Weird Al should do a tribute song.
Perhaps "Man doll in the wind".

I wonder if the current owners of that house, which would now be worth a fortune, have any idea of its colourful history? I lived in Islington for a while (in an £800/month hovel mind you), and that looks a lot like my old street (although admittedly, a lot of them look like that!)
I know Peter McD was being sarcastic, but Islington's a town in near- North London (N1 & N7). Apparently though these guys would commute a long way down to King's Road in Chelsea to hang out. I guess that's where the scene was back then - it sure isn't these days!

D'oh. I just noticed that Il typo! Who's bad?

I stayed in a squat once, near the Manor House stop. It was interesting, to say the least.

During the "Cyril is a glue man" bit, I think the guy behind him is starting to play "Alternative Ulster".

I'd really like to see some kind of "Where Are They Now" update on these kids, too.

Or, in true anarcho-nihilist style, "Where Aren't They Now"
