"Nothing left but infinity.some great records. photos filed in neat sections. ny dolls. heartbreakers. gang war. oddbals. solo shots. press cuttings in platic bags. gotta keep the hungry mites out. hanging in the wardrobe is a vibrant blue cowboy shirt made for jt in bangkok. he liked to shop and to swop. had more chic than than chanel. i came into posession of the lone ranger shirt during a frenzied trade session when johnny got the hots for a chinese print blouse of mine and went trawling through a stuffed to breking point suitcase. turning a friend's living room into a pick and mix disaster area. we were late for a photo session. assaulted the damn bag into repacked submission and headed to the the studio. a peeling maida vale basement. we had to have something for the last page of the "in cold blog" biog. a pic of me and him. the photographer looked like leonard cohen. it seemed appropriate in late december. so much for hollywood. this was more like a squat. not a scent of mtv technology. just johnny and i blinded by the lights and a storm of loose face powder that he liberally applied. afterwards we went out for dinner. thunders gave great restaurant scenes: although usually polite. he was given to committing first degree menu crimes. ordering triple icecream to start with spicey prawn something for dessert. johnny thunders taught me a lot more than just how to misbehave in restaurants. he was so witty. with that funny crackly razzo voice of his. snapping the filters off full strengh cigarettes for a stronger smoke. buying me banana daquiris. make sure i had enough money to get home. he knew the world could be colder than the arctic circle. whenever we got together. it wasn't." N. Antonia (from the sleeve notes of "VA - I Only Wrote A Song For You")
