Stunning photo of Roy

You can almost see mysterious intelligence shining out of his eyes!

Interesting to hear how he defended his 'puerile' songs like Pan, Forbidden Fruit, 'Zappy Nappy' and that ilk etc., and even though they sound superfluous they  certainly do break up the over-preaching tedium, and  there are always deep subterranean messages within each song anyway.

Like Sir Francis Bacon , Freud etc. that if it's human it should be put under the microscope and not regarded as alien but a representation of nature itself which we are born into [ or for that matter culture] and can be objectively analysed/represented as such without fear or excluding anything.

Sounded like Crop was fun. Hope you weren't refering to me when you told him that you get upset sometimes when bombarded with crap! Ha!
