By a cunning process of elimination, I’ve deduced that I illustrated this headboard when I was in late second or early third year i.e. some time after the release of Suede’s debut album in March 1993 (I’ve clearly copied the Suede logo) but before the release of Pulp’s His n’ Hers in April 1994 (or else that surely would have figured.)
I’m not sure how much peyote was floating around Ballyhaunis in the mid-nineties, but I had (until now) blotted out all memory of having ever liked The Doors.EDIT: Another clue to the date here is what’s missing. (“The dog that didn’t bark in the night”, as Arthur Conan Doyle might put it). In 1991/92, after the release of Nevermind, Nirvana were my favourite band in the entire world ever. But by 1993, I’d kinda gone off them. It wasn’t until Kurt died in April 1994 that I suddenly remembered they were still my favourite band in the entire world ever, and that I’d always liked them even when other people said they were shit.
