Talking Heads - You'll get the joke...

The Trash has discovered that the Head, Admiral General Szpecialskowski, was, in his youth, a Punk, and flopped his A-Levels because of it.

Saying in an interview given to Leader Magazine (which has since been changed to Supreme Leaders of the Größere Bildungssystem) the Head, Lord of all the Beasts of the Earth and the Fishes of the Sea (and the dance, of course), said of his younger days:
"[I] came unstuck a bit because I didn’t realise A levels would be such a different kettle of fish and required hard work. I was a punk in 1976 and spent a lot of time in clubs like the Roxy, the 100 and the Marquee – going backstage to meet some very interesting people – and nowhere near enough time studying."
It seems that Señor Szmoothcriminalkowski couldn't have been far any further removed from his present self when he was down the Roxy (oo-er missus). It's laughable that a man that openly deplored anarchist ideologies (and kicked someone out for simply having them) probably has Anarchy in the U.K on is iPod (which he won from Mr. Galifreyfalls for giving his attendance 110%). How far removed from his former self he is that he himself has become part of the establishment, and is intolerant to young people expressing themselves, their views and anger vocally, which is what the punk movement was all about.

Also laughable is the fact that he admits flopping his A-Levels on top of being a Szexpistolkowski, and then going on to be the Head of a school. Its cheery prospects for the 33% of A-Level students that failed this year. Now, we don't deplore the Head for not doing so well in his A-Levels, everyone is different and good at different things (some people are amazing at phone calls), but if he says you need to be working harder, even though it might be sound advice, you can see through the hypocrisy with a simple "Never mind the Bollocks, sir."

  1. I was at school with Szemalikowski throughout the 1970s and i can confirm he was very much a narcissistic psychological bully with control issues even then. One thing I do have to take issue with is his somewhat spurious assertion that he was a punk hanging out at the Roxy and the Marquee in 1976, when it in fact took him far longer than his contemporaries to catch on to what was happening. When he finally did, Jacques was a highly vocal (some might say deeply bloody irritating) champion of the Boomtown Rats, Sham 69 and the TRB- whom everyone knows were... well, completely s***. No, Szemalikowski was actually still in cheesecloth and flares, wearing his hair long, reeking of patchouli oil, carrying around Yes album art and championing legalisation of cannabis before he finally woke up to the fact that Curved Air and Jethro Tull weren't the future. His punk epiphany came around July 1977, a full year after punk had had its first flowering . I distinctly recall JS attempting to trick me into selling him my first pressing EMI copy of 'Anarchy in the UK' and the Buzzcocks Spiral Scratch EP for a couple of quid shortly before we both left St Jospph's in 1978 when these records were already worth considerably more. More ironic when I remember he had ridiculed me mercilessly for buying these records when first released. Your blog just feels like the most amazing karma to me. Thank you. The guy was- and is- a complete Tool. Please keep up the excellent work. :-)
