I must be one of the few people who actually have the Charlie Manson album, Lie: The Love and Terror Cult.
It isn’t bad, you know. He has a reasonable voice and he can play the guitar fairly well, or at least, he could when he was hanging out with Denis Wilson. He sounds a bit like a psychotic, murderous James Taylor, or maybe a deranged José Feliciano. That kind of thing. I particularly like the ninth track, Don’t Do Anything Illegal.
I was talking to Wrinkly Joe at the weekend, and he mentioned that he was re-reading Helter Skelter, about the murders all those years ago. What a coincidence. I was thinking about them too, because the anniversary has just passed, and I thought maybe it would be a good idea to commemorate them in some way.
I had in mind producing a range of cheesy snack-foods. What do you think?
Only two spring to mind at the moment but who knows? Maybe you might come up with others.
I think people might like to buy a bag of Manson Munch, made in the shape of fingers and toes. Classy or what?
But that would only be the start. I think the real success will come when we launch the cheese-and-onion-flavoured Sharon Tayto.
Isn’t it a great idea? I knew you’d agree.
