The 25th of May: Praise The Barricades

Richard North, Siren, May 1992

"IN A WAY it's beyond words. I've got so much respect for the way he lifted himself above the surroundings, that he was brought up in. He turned me onto something that went beyond cutting the sleeves off my leather jacket and stitching on the latest heavy metal band. He opened me up to the outside world and stopped me being insular. He opened up my heart to people."
