(JP: ‘And I hope you heard them [The House Of Love] on Tuesday night on that concert on Mark Goodier’s programme from the Waterfront in Norwich, because they were exceptionally good I thought. I mean they only played a 30 minute set or so, but a lot harder than I thought they were gonna be; and just a real treat. As were Jacob's Mouse from Bury St Edmunds, and of course most particularly The Fall. And as regular listeners will know a couple of weeks ago I saw them in Cambridge. Not disappointed, how could you be disappointed with The Fall, but I mean you know they weren’t absolutely at their peak, but they certainly were on Tuesday night. What a great gig it was. And I got to exchange pleasantries with Mark E Smith afterwards at a kind of showbiz do. You know just a kind of expressions of mutual whatever on a staircase as I left, but nevertheless great stuff. And he shook our William's hand and our William was much touched by that and quite rightly so. This is Big Black.’)
