Chris Townson/Andy Ellison interviews

Our heroes are featured in the forthcoming book 'Wired Up! Glam, Post-Punk & Bubblegum European Picture Sleeves 1970-1976'. With a nice snappy title like that, they need all the support you can give them. Chris talks (well, 'talked', I suppose, to be accurate, but we like to present-tense everything around here, much more snappy and compelling) to Phil King about John's Children, Jook, Sparks and Jet, Andy talks about JC, Jet and Radio Stars - excerpts here. And more to follow...
