From Graham Wilson:

Uttered a moment ago by Jo Whiley on wonderful Radio 1:

"On John Peel tonight, The Fall doing their twenty-first session for the programme.   That'll be twenty-one too many then surely"

Clearly a grudge is being borne.

Adam Marshall:
My bet goes on MES sacking the airline pilot on the way over and attempting to fly the plane whilst imitating Brian Wilson - then deciding that he doesn't like the way the plane looks, cutting the front off a totally shagged boeing 737 and sellotaping it onto the front of a 757 (a la "Everything but Myself") trying to fly it and then buggering off to crouch down at the back of the plane whilst reading the flight manual having a fag.

Al Reynolds found this:
> The buildup of mold, mildew and fungus are the cause.
> Worse yet,continued inhalation can make you sick!
> There is a solution!


The Biggest Library Yet

Issue 10 of the excellent (and now official) fanzine TBLY came out a few weeks ago, put together by Graham Coleman. For details have a look at the TBLY pages at http://members.tripod.com/~GColeman/index.html - some back issues (3, 4, 7, 8, 9, 10) are still available for the bargain price of £1.00 cash/chq/PO (overseas send 3 IRCs or $3US). Any enquiries to spleen@valise.com

Rob Waite is taking over management of the TBLY from issue 11, so submissions for the next issue should go to Rob, 19 Wellington Street, Retford, Notts, DN22 6PR, UK. I'll put up the order details once they're finalised.
