From The Drudion (Julian Cope): "...
on the Sunday following the G20,
myself and eight other Black Sheep – Holy McGrail,
Acoustika, Antronhy Øh, Big Nige,Michael O’Sullivan,
Fat Paul, Common Era, David Wrench and Christophe F. –
amassed at the BBC’s Maida Vale studios to record our
first radio session. Three brand new pieces entitled
‘Not Happy’, ‘Bank of England’ and ‘Vachel Lindsay’
spewed forth. At times, the music was a wild switchback
ride and a cacophonous Cack Off, whilst at other moments,
it became a dozy slug inching its way across a
salty baking tray. Yowch!"
