Where were you when.....Written by Tim Moll
...you got your copy of Q, Are we not men. I was on Pottergate Norwich UK with Mark Alistaire Roland Keatinge a drummer, after school, on the pavement outside Robins Records. My order had arrived, and it was first a case of what colour vinyl will t be? Sealed in plastic I stood and stared hardly daring to open it, but the prize was mine, a beautiful green platter. Home on the bus and an hour later those four snaps of drum stick on drum stick. I still get a little shiver up my spine, and 35 years later I still get that shiver every time I hear that beat! Thank you Devo. A few years later my dear friend Mark was knocked off his push bike and suffered a severe head injury. Mark can still understand what is said to him but cannot fully communicate. We can still share this memory and a few others. I'd like to thank Mark for sharing this particular moment with me.
