Thread Name: ADD: Kilroy Was Here (Ewan MacColl)
Subject: RE: Kilroy Was Here-Ewan MacColl
MacColl (1980) says:

The chip and nuclear energy! And if the one don't get you then the other one will...

And Kilroy, who has heard it all before and who is accustomed to getting the shitty end of the stick begins to wonder whether the world wouldn't be a safer place without all those talking heads and this shrill pantomime dame whose verbal diarrhoea threatens his world with imminent inundation.

Almost all the bands on this disc are about this or that aspect of Kilroy's condition: Kilroy old, Kilroy young, Kilroy male, Kilroy female, Kilroy hoping, Kilroy despairing. Above all, it is about the terrifying dangers that confront Kilroy now, _now_, NOW.!

MacColl may not have meant exactly what others meant by "Kilroy" but the question seemed to ask what MacColl meant. I think Guest, John was pretty close.

The text given above are good except for a very few words.
