in the MOIR HALL at the MITCHELL THEATRE in Glasgow on
October 20th, 1984. (So blame him.) I well remember my subsequent
trips down to London to the IPC offices at KING'S REACH TOWER in
Stamford Street, and sitting chatting to Steve one sunny lunchtime in the
garden of a cheery wee pub just up the road from IRWIN HOUSE,
where the Youth Group had been relocated to in preparation for the
sale to Maxwell. If I remember correctly, art assistant KEVIN
BRIGHTON was also there.
I may have told this tale before, but Steve, Kevin, and myself
were standing looking out of a window on the 26th floor of KRT one
afternoon (previous to the one above) in 1986, when I asked him what
2000 A.D. might be called in the year 2000. He did a good job of hiding
his boredom at hearing a question he'd no doubt been asked hundreds of
times before and said something like: "Well, that's fourteen years away,
Gordon - we don't have to worry about it 'til then." And, truth to
tell, it seemed an eternity away at the time.
