  • (JP: 'I remember once, a few years ago, there was a fellow who'd made an excellent record who was called Space Demon. There was a phone number on the piece of paper that came with it and I thought I'd have a word with Space Demon. So I phoned up and of course I didn't know what his real name was so I had to say - a woman came [on], 'hello, how may I help you?'... 'Can I speak to Space Demon' and she said, 'oh no he's not in. I'm Space Demon's mum, he's gone to the shops for me.' And it didn't seem quite right, I thought he should be out there destroying galaxies with a name like that. I mention this because Primetime, who's on in just a couple of seconds time, wants us to say hello to his mum, who's listening. So hello to Primetime's mum.')
