Everett True, Melody Maker, 11 July 1992

JULIANA SCREAMS. SHE SOUNDS PETULANT, ANNOYED FRUSTRATED: "I JUST WANT A BIT PART IN YOUR LIFE! I JUST WANT A BIT PART IN YOUR LIFE!" The boy is ignoring her. How could he? She's hung around him all this time, camped on his doorstep, chatted up all his friends, and still he avoids her. She's got grace, charm, passion; what more could a boy want? She's not asking for much – even a walk-on would be fine.
