Perhaps it was on some of your "Adders Venon / Death Rattle" or "RATTUS PSYCHEDELICUS".

Too good to be true :lol: :lol:
Well spotted MULLY and "unbroken69" (April 1st '79 issue)... i just couldn't resist adding to this great MIB myth...
cheers

PS. You're right "unbroken69" i came up with the above tale after TWO bottles of "Adders Venom / Death Rattle"... half way through my third bottle i started a conversation with a fat green phosphorescent Squirrel... two bottles of the old "Rattus Psychedelicus" isn't enough... but three's too many!
Something better change!

I want first dibs on your premier novel, on less of course you are already a published storyteller. :lol: Although you could always turn your hand to dangerous liquor.

Wasn't Charlotte Hatherley in her band at one time? I could watch that with the sound off :grin:

Saw KT Tunstall last night opening for Squeeze. She's still telling the same story!

Not sure how many folks in the Cape Cod crowd were familiar with the Stranglers though...

I wonder if her fans roll their eyes and go "not that story again", the same way that Stranglers fans do when JJ starts banging on about that fight?

Allow me to re-arrange your face, sometimes I'd really like to get to know you better
