  • 06 March 2003: I Can't Handle It (LP-An Introduction to Minute Melodies) Awkward (JP: “I've just done something stupid, I don't think I've ever done that before....Well, I really took myself by surprise there, because I pressed the button on the wrong CD player and stopped the record that was playing, which was by Grandmaster Gareth, and 'I Can't Handle It' was the title of the track. Seems very appropriate under the circumstances.”)
