Isn't it "All minions to messiah Pepsi Can" which does at least make some sense.

Back on track - sorry, can play the various bits and pieces but don't have any notation or the like.

Yes, a sad ode to the state of Western allegiances in a consumerist world...

Agreed. The twin totemic icons of Western culture: trousers made out of tent material dyed a cheap shade of blue, and a drink that's essentially a pantheon of E-numbers, a flavoured drain cleaner with burp seeds in.

The link to e-numbers is something I never considered. But you're right - 'Oh mystical e's, all taxi cabs, all ultra neon, sign of the times'. It all makes sense now.

Mike L may be able to help you with the notation as he is rather good at things like that wink

Always remember seeing in one of the computer music magazines of the Eighties a copy of an assembly manual for some kit. The manufacturers had obviously used a Japanese to English dictionary and had mis-transalted the word "screw" into a four letter word beginning with F. nutjob

whilst on the subject of the slightly less-known Ultravox songs does anyone know how to play Paths and Angles. It's a great song, shame its not a little more known!

thanks in advance,
Monuman
