I saw them on Top Of The Pops 2 doing ‘This Town Ain’t Big Enough For The Both Of Us’. I liked that somebody could get something so extreme across and yet it’s still so catchy and direct. A couple of years ago I heard this guy talking behind me about doing this European tour back in 1973. I turned around and it was Ron Mael. I completely froze. Just what do you say to guys like that?
