So what does Marconi playing the mamba mean? "Marconi" is referring to the radio itself. It plays a deadly snake. The snake - the mamba - is slithering from the speakers. Ready to kill greedy corporations. Ready to free the world of all that is evil, and to leave behind only the youthful idealism encompassed by the tenets of rock and roll.

No, she recently had relations with him because he now looks like an old lesbian.

I was so hoping someone would take that and run with it.

You know who really looks like an old lesbian? That Clark Duke guy. He's starring in the upcoming release "Hot Tub Time Machine."

Clark Duke was actually pretty funny in the web series "Clark & Michael," with Michael Cera before Michael Cera got overexposed and ruined.

And yes, there were a few jokes about how he looks like an old lesbian.

Dave Gregory, who became XTC's lead guitar player at the start of their middle period album greatness (Drums and Wires, Black Sea, and English Settlement).
Just my opinion, but I don't think former member Barry Andrews keyboard playing would've fit with those songs. They needed some inventive guitar playing which Gregory provided.

Bingo. Gregory is brilliant and what an unassuming chap. The way he jumped between keyboards and guitar live is an underestimated talent.

He's actually very funny on Greek too, which is a show that I would be totally embarrassed to watch if it were not so clever.

THIS.
He's on Braxton's Monk record, btw.

Have you heard his duets with Shepp on Left Alone Revisited? I believe that was his final recording.

He disappears up into the mountains and is never seen again. Believe me, he'll never be seen again. He'll live forever because of that."

Agreed. He can claim he did it all himself, but he needed a Jonesy or a Wobble or a Levene or an Atkins to actually execute his ideas.
Glen Matlock
Oops. Didn't mean to leave him off.
Bill Laswell and Afrika Bambaata deserve a mention here along with Leftfield. As a non musician it's fair to say John required the springboard.
