Occasional lyrics and site contributor John Anderson has just written a book about his time as a “globetrotting sports reporter”. John admits that the HMHB connection to “A Great Face For Radio” is tenuous, but he says: “In the introduction to the book I describe an imaginary dinner party where I borrow the loft conversion joke from Friday Night And The Gates Are Low, as well as deliberately citing Annie Lennox as an example of excruciating music.” That’s good enough for us.
