The truth about Everett True Part 2
Already too many bar owners know my first name and spell it
wrong - you'd've thought they'd've heard of the town they named after me by
now. People have cold, transparent skins here. They are very earnest and
have only the smallest amount of humor. They tell me I should hang idiot
boards round my neck or speak slower. But I have the QUEEN'S ENGLISH! Three
nights ago at Aerospace I sat on a music panel full of old people who still
remember dimly what fun smelled like. An argument broke out over an unpaid
bill. I revealed my love for the stench of corruption. Grunge guru Jack
Endino pointed out that all the classic million-selling Led Zeppelin and
Pink Floyd LPs of the '70s were slagged off at the time by elitist hipster
But they'd have been correct to have done so, right?
