So as the usual underemployed creative musician I was trawling the web for porn…..no sorry ignore that….trawling the web for something interesting to read when I stumbled upon this – http://straitjacketmusic.co.uk/ – The Dire Straits Story. Written, created, imagined, and contrived by the one and only Robert Marshal……
After a bit of reading I decided to take the bait and post, and low and behold I received several responses from an obviously intelligent coherent individual.
Wow could this be true I thought?
Slowly but surely the contact and conversations continued, yet at every step I asked Robert for his evidence, and at every step I was told ‘Soon’, ‘i’ll upload to YouTube in February’……but low and behold no evidence was forthcoming.
Now most recently Robert has started to remove my posts from his site under the immense weight of my judicious cross examination (not). Hence I thought I would start a little blog here to allow free expression not just about Roberts claims, but about anything to do with the internet and its ability to create (often ludicrous) myth.
So dust off your record collection, blow away the mind bending cobwebs, get up off the sofa and let the conversation commence!
