On his decision last year to emigrate to the US:

"Every village and town in England has a bunch of thugs running around in it. The riots were the nail in the coffin. I have been sitting on the application for the last two months, asking Gemma if she is absolutely sure because once it is done, it's done forever. The day after the riots, I got onto the lawyer and said, 'let's do it - get on with it'. I do love being English and I am not anti the country but I have got to think of the children."


Were you thinking of them when you supported Thatcher Gary?

"America clearly has its own problems, but Santa Monica is great. It has beautiful beaches and the Pacific ocean. There is not one bit of trouble and not one surly or aggressive person there. Everyone is friendly. You ask the teenagers there for directions and they are polite and helpful. Do that here and you are as likely to get stabbed as you are to get directions. The fact is the English are pretty miserable."

YES I WONDER WHY. Fuck off and don't come back you tory cunt.

Every song on Parade is evidence of Prince's genius and Kiss is just one of them.


Salut!

And just in case you missed it:
Fuck off and don't come back you tory cunt.


I've a funny story about 'Cars' that I'll recount sometime unless Ryan or Jake beat me to it

Huh, how bout that. I guess I've never seen the cover art for that 7", now I know.

Edit: I'll take "Cars" over most of the Prince catalog.
