What a cool song by The Mekons, I don’t remember hearing that before. That TV21 album is being reissued as a double vinyl LP in Scotland - it’s such a great album. Did you get a chance to see Norman when he played in Ottawa with Shame. They were great.

Interesting tidbit of musical connect the dots - Andy Diagram who plays in Spaceheads also played trumpet with Michael Head in various of his incarnations going as far back as when he played with him in The Pale Fountains
