Nice to see other fanatics are out there ! I first saw Virgin Prunes at Heaven , 1993 , I thought that they were absolute crap ! Yet , there was something so compelingly , camply awful about their performance I became completly obsessed and grew to love them . I was fortunate to meet Gavin Friday a couple of times , backstage , and had the rare distinction of having Strongman rip up an autograph paper , I dare say I asked for it !I have followed Gavin’s career and the prunes but I guess I sort of grew out of it , except for the rare evening , whwn I’m by myself and go back Fifteen years . Well Done !
