Being somebody that was totally underwhelmed by This Charming Man and Hand In Glove, I was looking for something that I could relate to as a fifteen year old kid from west central Scotland who had the wants and desires of your average teenager . I started to get really pissed of at these guys in their horrible cheesecloth shirts, carrying copies of the Complete Works Of Oscar Wilde under their boggin’ Oxfam overcoats, talking about celibacy when the only thing that I wanted to do was get deep down and dirty with a member of the opposite sex.
Thank fuck for the Mary Chain. When they exploded on the scene there was no need for all of that sensitive shit. Us philistines who could not give a fuck about what happened in Reading Gaol or who was found at Victoria Station could be safe in the knowledge that there was nothing wrong in wearing tight black trousers and Ray-Bans and wishing that we were part of the Factory.
