Pink Floyd: The Final Cut (EMI SHPF 1983)

Lynden Barber, Melody Maker, 19 March 1983

JUST PICTURE IT: over on the left there's wacky old Jack-the-lad Tony Ashton bobbing and weaving away beneath his dad's mangy cloth cap like Kevin Keegan having an epileptic fit, stage centre Alvin Lee contorts his upper lip into a quivering imitation of blancmange and selects a mean little lick from '101 Things To Do For The Retired: Chapter 9 — Being An Ex-Guitar Hero'.

Total word count of piece: 870
