Got any interesting thoughts on a set of lyrics? Any that don't involve the word "indeed"? Find yourself struggling to decipher all those obtuse references Von makes? Read "1959 And All That" and still no clearer? Nope, us neither. Postcards found lying in a skip around the back of the Chemists can be found here... Don't say you weren't warned.

From what he described, it sounds like an eventful week (methedrine apparently keeping him awake for that long).
Methedrine, maybe. Acid comedown is quite the same ...

Making free associations was a modern style of thinking decades ago, while nowadays most would hardly dare,

How do you all feel about the interpretation proposed in Waiting For Another War where the song is about Patricia Morrison? I feel like it's a possibility, however it could just as easily be about any number of lovers I suppose.
