Pipsqueak Parade: Strawberry Switchblade

Bill Black, Sounds, 6 August 1983

IT'S LIKE A scene from Roeg's Don't Look Now. Between the grim, grey tombstones that populate a Glasgow cemetery like so many broken teeth, fleeting glimpses of polka dot and ribbon catch the eye and tease the mind with images and meaning, reminiscent of the little red horror that led poor Donald Sutherland to such a sticky end.
