And this is what FIRST introduced me to work of Johnny Deluxe
A rather pithy and pointed piquant pulchritude of passion poignancy and persuasive poetry
Great poem … great voice … love it!!
And a huge thanx to Meester Mainey, Kilmarnock’s finest, for the introduction

I thought this wee film was superb … it almost moved me to tears, probably due to the fact that it was so poignant, and has a particuklar relevance to me as I’ve known two young guys who’ve committed suicide, with homophobic bullying being a major factor in their depression … poverty being another
I posted the film on Facebook, and left a note on a FB page, thanking the lady who’d tipped me off on the clip … and then this FB conversation resulted … I tried so hard to be polite throughout, but ggggrrrrr!!!!
