The Flinging Faust Tapes From The Flat Window!

Today I spied a clip from Stewart Lee about his meeting with the band Faust and some twisted vegeance for an incident that was steeped in some urban legend that he heard somewhere or other (he supposedly “learned it from a booook”), about Johnny And The Self Abusers and some Faust records. You can watch the clip by clicking the link below.

 Stewart Lee: Simple Minds & Faust clip

Well, I *had* to ask Sir about this. As I said in linking the Stewart Lee clip on SMO, I was aware of the story of him (Jim) throwing a record out of the Kerr flat window for him later to find that Charlie Burchill received it as he happened to, rather serendipitously, walk by below.

But Sir was also kind enough to clarify some details, whilst eleborating on others. Sixteen edits later, I think he’s finally happy with the final tale. Lol. (If this autoboigraphy EVER sees the light of day, no one will be more surprised than me!)

This was the post I saw (and in earlier posts to this, the fuck wasn’t even sensored. RIGHTLY SO! Lol. thank you FB edit history…my poor darling is naive to such things, god love him! Now, don’t you be blaming me, Jim! The edit history is there for ALL to see!)…hence I left a comment about “no tortoises being harmed in the making of this post” and saying I always thought the Don’t You picture disc looked like a squished tortoise.

The one below is the most recent version (subject to change!) on SMO. Slightly reworded, and no swearing. I wish he didn’t feel the need to sensor himself so much! What’s a “fuck” between friends? *bats eyelashes and looks sheepishly innocent*

Thank you again, Sir, for making my day :-))
