Richard Thompson

David Sinclair, MOJO, April 1994

THEY SAY THERE'S ONE IN EVERY CROWD. BUT HE'S ALWAYS hard to spot because he looks so normal. Quiet, polite, a little shy even. You know the type. Wouldn't hurt a fly. But underneath that reserved faced, strange demons flit across the landscape of his mind, like bats beneath the moon. He's the friendly psycho in our midst, the Michael Douglas character in Falling Down, the unassuming John Doe who turns out to be the Midnight Rambler.
