If you’re hanging on to a rising balloon, you’re presented with a difficult decision — let go before it’s too late or hang on and keep getting higher, posing the question: how long can you keep a grip on the rope? They’re selling Simon Love wigs in Woolworth’s, man. The greatest record label in the history of mankind is over. We have failed to paint it black.
