I remember as if it were last week… reading the entire infamous Attitude interview in a long-gone international magazine shop on Broadway by Astor Place (NYC) and I regret not buying it!! (It was then, as it is now, super expensive!) 😎

The only thing close I can think of is that they turned down their TOTP invitation to perform Go West because the programme wouldn’t finance the backing dancers / choir they wanted to use (or similar). The not clapping along clause doesn’t sound credible. I remember them being critical of the show when they started to insist on live vocals.

If anyone’s finding any of these hard to read because I haven’t quite got it in focus or lit well enough please let me know (unless the answer’s “all of them”).

A particularly revealing interview with Neil from the Telegraph Magazine, probably due to the lunchtime wine. The journalist, Lynn Barber, comes across as slightly predatory.

That's a big jump from 1994 to '96. I guess they didn't do much promo for Paninaro'95 in 1995? Or Dog was growing-up and the adult world was time-consuming :)

Yes, these are the dying embers of the scrapbooks sadly. Some more big jumps to come.

Lynn Barber was known as the ‘Demon Barber of Fleet Street’
Wonder how Chris felt about the reference to Pete Andreas and they’re living together. I’ve got a book compendium of her various interviews, the Neil interview was included. Very good read, she was a very incisive interviewer.
Still waiting to hear the Adam Freeland, Manhattan Clique and Axwell mixes of Integral.

I had this advert (a 12” by 12” cardboard promo thingy”)on my wall in the halls of residence. Happy days

Very striking visuals. Anyone know the thinking behind it?

It's a strait-jacket.

It’s the front and back of a straitjacket, used in Georgian times to treat mental illness and restrain patients in asylums. Now more often used by escapologists.
