The Rolling Stones singing "Street Fighting Man" is total nonsense.A millionaire singing working class songs is a total lie.(hello,Russell Brand!)
Saying that ,I loved this song in the 1970s.I believed every word....Sometimes artifice is a very comforting distraction.innit?
We are critical of politicians & the lies they tell us.Are we any better with the lies we tell ourselves?
Cath took this photo of me in Athens in 1987.She was still recovering from her first miscarriage.
I asked her to take it.
at the time.
I suppose ,in this photo , I wanted to give an impression of a 'Gentleman Abroad'.Living with 'real' people.[Not on some dodgy package holiday!]
on my return.("Working Class Noir"!).
Chris was born safely the following year.I guess it worked....
