I can assure you, young Ian, that at no point during my childhood, did my choir-loving parents guide me in any way towards enjoying a piece of pop perfection by four young chaps from Sheffield who had a penchant for lame suits and a producer who wore extremely large and silly spectacles who, in a previous moment of clarity, had anticipated the birth of MTV.

My parents did have Telstar though, so it wasn't all bad.

PS Yeah, Dollar had been shit Guys & Dolls spin-off, but I can assure you I wasn't the only person who was into the likes of the Teardrops and The Fall to fall in love with Hand Held In Black & White. Not by any means! And it was how Horn got the ABC gig...
