Trixie's Big Red Motorbike: an insider's story

Funny how it goes sometimes: clicking on a link on someone else's blog and then being taken back to the comments section of your own, to a very interesting comment that I hadn't discovered myself yet. Thanks, Martijn!

You can read Trixie's Big Red Motorbike's story as told by their 'producer' Michael Sparrow here. I thought it was too interesting to keep it hidden away in a comment.

This was my original post, including some MP3s.

I have a funny story about TBRB. Well not THAT funny, but here it is anyway. As a provincial teen listening to John Peel under the bedclothes, I became besotted with Trixie (aka Mel?) and started writing her letters of admiration. Imagine my surprise when, instead of getting a reply from Trixie, I got one from her clearly rattled boyfriend (Mark?). I have derived a certain twisted satisfaction from that over the years...

What's your name? Mel has kept all the fan letters. Don't know who the rattled boyfriend was though-Mel's was invisible.
