      Off on an outrageous trip to teenage dogshit heaven.
      Enthusiastic vagueness passes for scholarship in the twilight world of the disc-jockey.

        Shame. RIP. Seems a good place to mention this tune Liza plays a lot and which everyone asks about



        I'm of the opinion that it's some kind of homage to this (it even says "let's take a trip" at one point)



        or maybe this



        What do you guys reckon?

                Sad to hear, but boy did he live it to the max!
                Thanks for this, ( among so many other wonderful, strange records) Well done that man.

                  Was he horrific? I've heard mixed stories about him.

                  Anyway, my fave of the many pieces of exploito trash he put his name to

                    People I know who encountered him seem very positive. Perhaps he was more of an agressive perv in the 70s when this was expected behaviour down at Rodney's English Disco.

                        He's someone else's problem now.

                            ...

                            Met him once, at his infamous London gig about a decade ago. Certainly seemed a character, although I did but say hi to the man.

                            Love some of his stuff, especially 'Outrageous' and 'St John Green'.

                            Perhaps he''ll be back...
