New York: The Dark Side Of Town

Nick Kent, New Musical Express, 5 May 1973

THE GRAFFITI IN the toilets at Max's Kansas City is abysmal. It's the only word that comes to mind – there's not one subversive scrawl, not a single debauched pinko faggot scribble, not even an abrupt vulgar expletive carved with a switchblade.

Total word count of piece: 1803
