Subway Sect: Vic the Vague

Paul Morley, New Musical Express, 9 January 1982

A PIECE ON VIC GODARD BY PAUL MORLEY SAUCILY ENTITLED VIC THE VAGUE.

Paul says: "I wish to be referred to at the heading of this piece in the way that the Sunday World described George Bernard Shaw in 1891. That is... 'Fabian socialist, art and musical critic, vegetarian, ascetic, humourist, artist to his fingertips and man of the people right to the tip of his boots.' Perhaps you might care to add 'amorist' as well."

Total word count of piece: 4150
