(JP: "I just opened another present, in fact: I should have more of these birthdays, perhaps several a year, like members of the Royal Family. I think it's only the Queen that has two birthdays, but I reckon I ought to have a couple as well. My chum Winston Smith has sent me posters and still photographs from my two favourite films ever, which are Repo Man and The Blues Brothers, so those will be up on the wall back at Peel Acres before you can say 'night'.")
(JP: "My thanks again to Arnie Matthews for this excellent LP: I look forward to hearing the entire thing. I shall drive my neighbours mad with it. Actually, I haven't got any neighbours, but if I had, I should drive them mad with it.")
(JP: "I shall always regret that I never saw any of their final gigs: really stupid of me not to go. They were on in Leeds, my name was on the door, and I was sitting at home about five o'clock in the evening, and I thought, no, I'll just stay in and get an Indian takeaway and watch the television instead. And I should not have done that.")
