We were due to support Wire again at the next gig they had in London. We decided we should go in something else rather than the murderous Crow-mobile and got another friend to drive us to London. Unfortunately, his van broke down and we missed playing the gig entirely.
Parry was furious, and told us in no uncertain terms, "You have to be more professional."
