(JP: 'Just having a look through the new Top 40 to see where that is, and it isn't anywhere.[1] It's rather shocking, you certainly buying terrible records I don't know. That Petrol Emotion and Big Decision. This is the Cookie Crew and how pleasant to hear them in session in Janice's programme last night')
(JP: 'And now this is the highest new entry in the charts')
(JP: 'Jesus And Mary Chain, number 19 in the charts this week with April Skies, that's the 12" version. They were saying on Janice's programme just over an hour ago. Endorsing what I'm being saying for some time. I'm not saying that they're I'm echoing what I said, but saying the same sort of thing, in that, there is nothing in the charts at the moment, as I am a parent should disapprove of. I think this has social implications well beyond popular music. I won't go into all of them now, as I haven't worked out in theories completely and at the same time, I think there are implications which are quite worrying. These are the Capitols, I Want To Be Alone')
