A Cantankerous Observation
Mike Essig
1945

I was once stop/searched by a very nervous RUC policeman in Belfast, around 1977. It was during the punk days and I was suitably turned out as we were on our way to a Stiff Little Fingers gig. I was wearing a black button badge in which this gent took a very special interest but the writing was so tiny, he had to squint, up close. And the legend? fuck off, of course.
