Jamie Atkins, , January 2017

ADAM ANT revealing that, as a child, his father used to call him Fadius Nicodemus; the peculiar habits of Robert Smith ("Today I dressed up as my mum and cooked curry. There's always an undercurrent of insanity which goes on in private."); John Lydon stating his intention to land an acting part in Crossroads, rather laudably not for personal gain, but because "it will add a whole new dimension to the programme"; convincing the Angelic Upstarts to don lederhosen for a photo strip loosely based on The Sound Of Music.
