Eric idols


If you're quick, you can catch the fab documentary about seminal Liverpool nitespot Eric's on the BBC's listen again thingy. It's up for another two days at time of writing.

An aside to the above- in the documentary, Steve Lamacq continually refers to David Balfe as a "former Teardrop Explode", i.e. as one of The Teardrop Explodes. I always thought that in the group's name (The Teardrop Explodes), the word Explodes was employed as an intransitive verb. So it's a short sentence. That's certainly how it was used in the Marvel comic strip from which they took their name.

Have I been wrong all these years? Were they really The Teardrop Explodes, i.e. a plural noun? Like The Smiths or The Cramps or The Ramones?

You should drop Steve a line and tell him. Although he might get upset and carve 4 REAL into his arm

Mr. Plamf. Is there any interest from your end in seeing Mark Stewart and the Maffia at Edinburgh's Voodoo Rooms next Thurs?

Sorry, I like your MySpace site, but I can't seem to comment or contact you without being a MySpace member...
