And censorship rolls on.

Censorship is the suppression of ideas. Dancing Kirby is hoping James shows a little sensitivity. Very different things.

One thing I've always found odd about that line is that in the GT booklet it runs as per the famous Burrough's quote "in the Mona Lisa's face" but as far as I know it's always been "your face" including in the pre-GT demos and other versions.
I guess getting hung up on the accuracy of booklet lyrics isn't a very worthwhile use of time though.

The Manics never called for MPs (Kill A Tory Before They Kill You I think was title) to be killed so defeated own point about Killdren response, dropped from Glastonbury slot etc, milked publicity.
Killdren probably don't have a politics degree!
That must be really unusual for a Festival corporate money no enslavery money corporate Festivals to drop an act from bill.
This should also go in another thread but the Loaded, Select and other 90's magazine's influenced the fuck out of how Boris Johnson used to present himself.
So do reckon we're getting "Sweet Child O'Mine (is it Of or O?)" this Autumn then?

He doesn't sing it. Stops at I laughed. Has done that for years. He's said he's uncomfortable with it in the past....
The line is barely intelligible anyway ...likely most people are unaware of it these days ...hardly the latest hit is it?
