In Minute 106 of The Whole Shebang, Mike and Jenny finish up their time with Maxwell Demon’s goodbye number, the sprinkling of flower petals gets us talking about the secret origin of confetti and the fragility of avians, we look at Arthur in the crowd at the Tommy Stone show, Tommy Stone’s sorta-fascist logo, rock and roll logos throughout history, and rock and rollers who use symbols instead of words for their albums and own names. And then we talk about the personal dimension of Arthur in 1984, and how the world of music changed around him, and how Velvet Goldmine might be more about the personal rather than the political, going to gigs as a 40-something, and Tommy Stone’s impromptu stage door press conference, the egoistic impulse to market a mask of your own face, and Tommy’s weird mid-Atlantic accent.
