Vincent Crane

Colin Harper, unpublished, 2004

Author's Note: This was commissioned for Mojo but for reasons unclear to me never ran. It was during a period where a lot of writers were dealing with a lot of exasperation around delays in commissioned work running or, in some cases, not. There comes a point where one decides it's too much hassle, as I did. A lot of this material was eventually used in my notes for Universal's Vincent Crane 2CD anthology Close Your Eyes, but a fair amount – include Roger Glover's recollections – is unseen. Hanging the feature on an anniversary was the editor's idea, I think – and a fair enough one. But only if the feature actually ran on the relevant date!
