We named the CAT

Anyway, Spiggy & The Stooges?

(I think it sounds a bit like a portmanteau of Speed and Twiggy, but I know that's not the origin. Yes, I have read the FAQ.)

Thanx for opening up your immense collection, Mr Spiggy 7 Cool We are not worthy!

Me too, i'm sure I read that before, but I can't remember seeing that pic before... or else it got erased from my mind. Also possible Mr. Green

BTW Spiggy is from Private Eye - their stock rock-star character is Spiggy Topes.

Ah, don't think I'd read that Melody Maker article before but the final paragraph seems familiar.

Where's that second version from? A reprint? It says "TLFe Book" but I don't know what that is.

Yes, I know, but the article refers to Von as Spiggy.

Is "Spiggy" a reference to his much vaunted skinny legs?

You're right, it was re quoted elsewhere, possibly in the article in the York Rock Festival Programme ?

there is also a live review of the gig NME Feb 20th with no picture, but mention of John as the stand in - starts by saying 'the rhythm guitarist is in detention... '
