Is that "They Live?" One of my favourites. Especially with that blues lick that absolutely crawls along. Hello from London, Joe

Joe! a pleasure to hear from you... how are things on that side of the planet?

You picked it. I love this film! Damn... I remember (vividly) seeing a clip from it on tv, just after it had been released in the US (it topped the box office there for a couple weeks, from memory). As soon as I got word of a local release, Sydney, I rang the distributor: any screenings, nearer to me (Brisbane)? Nada. So I caught the greyhound south - spent a w/e staying with my great aunt, & her husband (an emphysemic retired police commissioner). Ha! Also I saw Cronenberg's Dead Ringers, and band Lubricated Goat (at the Evil Star, as the japesters used to refer to the Evening Star Hotel). Couple months later, a review of this was the first thing I ever had published (I got paid for it, even!).

I was 19. I had a mohawk (not really - it was shoulder length but shaved up the sides - in a high wind it flapped around all over the place) and shaved eyebrows.

Anyways. Watched this again & it provided for a rousing nostalgia. heh!
