  • "On the reverse of Happy Shopper you get, well, it's their single from last year, She Loves You, Yeah, which sort of made, would have made, the Festive 50 but the trouble was, that somebody, I don't doubt associated with the band, better be careful here, actionable things, but sent in like an absurd number of vites,  there was no attempt at all to disguise that they were being sent in from the same location, because they were all on the exact same kind of postcard, which was a Foreheads In A Fishtank postcard which had got a penis on it, which is rather worrying of course, because it's one of those things you think, can I be arrested for being on the receiving end, as it were, of what would be classed as obscene mail, but it was a flaccid penis, so I think that's probably in the clear. ... There were so many votes, it would have been number 1 by a mile if I'd counted tehm, they used to come in in sheaves of 40 to 50 at a time."
