Artist mentioned in despatches and so here for your week-starting delectation.
New Order famously nicked the title for their fantabulous new 12" single in 1983 leading, I remember, a Smash Hits reviewer with a ridiculous pseudonym ('Red Starr') and even more ridiculous (and out of place) intellectual pretensions to liken this to Harold Robbins calling his new paperback 'War And Peace'. This seemed slightly odd to me, even at the time.
