MENTIONED IN THE GUARDIAN! AND SLAGGED OFF ON BBC RADIO!!!
14.03.03

BLIMEY!! This has been the Le Strangest week of all, since we launched our site just a few short weeks ago! We've been mentioned in the Guardian, we've been slagged off on Radio 6, and we've been receiving wonderful mail from ALL OVER THE WORLD!!

WWW.GARYLESTRANGE.CO.UK MENTIONED IN
THE GUARDIAN!!
14.03.03

Yes! You heard us! I bet you don't believe it, but it's true!! Our website, that we lovingly crafted with our own fair computers, was reviewed in the online section of The Guardian yesterday! No, not the Walthamstow Guardian--the real deal! The big one that Michelle reads, and my Mum. My Mum was so proud of us, she took us out to Pizza Hut last night and bought us both a MASSIVE pizza--EACH! With Diet Coke! And a SALAD!! Even Michelle's Dad was quiet for once. Of course, the article didn't mention us at all, so he didn't believe it at first--and he said it was only the Guardian, and only poofs and communists read it. And he said Gary Le Strange is a poof and a communist as well. But nevertheless, he did seem quite baffled by it. Maybe he'll finally accept the fact that Michelle has grown up after all, and stop making her work at the Golf Club every Sunday. HURRAY!!

WWW.GARYLESTRANGE.CO.UK SLAGGED OFF ON RADIO 6!!!
14.03.03

As if having our site mentioned in The Guardian wasn't enough, this week we also had a mention of our site on BBC Radio 6! In which we were mentioned BY NAME!! A nice man called Dave Green with a "Best of the Web" slot on Phill Jupitus' breakfast show decided to do a review of our site. But the bearded "comedian" wouldn't let him get a word in, and proceeded to SLAG OFF our wonderful tribute to Gary. He said:

  • That we were Gary's ONLY TWO FANS (not true: see below)
  • That Gary's new CD belongs IN THE BIN (not true: see our review)
  • That in Gary's new photo session (see our gallery) the duvet he is sitting on looks "very tatty"
  • That Gary looks like he works in an UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFIT OFFICE (not true: he looks like a SEX GOD)
  • And finally: "If you put a link to Mr Le Strange's website on our site, I'm gonna break your legs."

We couldn't believe our ears! We salute Mr Green for making such a valiant attempt to bring the Neo Regency Face Warrior Movement to the masses. But Jupitus just made our blood boil!! We didn't cry or anything, we were just very angry. Michelle said she knew some Chaos Goths who might go down to Radio 6 and beat somebody up, but we thought that was probably a bad idea (Gary believes in warriors, but not in war--we must always remember that). Then we thought we might set up a "Boycott Radio 6" campaign, but then we thought it better that we just boycott Phill Jupitus instead. So if you would like to join us in never watching Never Mind the Buzzcocks again, we salute you!

Gary has always said he doesn't like men with beards, and now we know why!

SORRY! NO NEWS FOR AGES!
13.04.03

Well, thanks to me MOVING HOUSE and having FAR TOO MUCH HOMEWORK TO DO and DEVELOPING AN EAR AND THROAT INFECTION, there have been no updates to this site for OVER THREE WEEKS!!! News has also been very quiet on the Gary frontů UNTIL NOW!! We have updated the Gig List page today with several of what we think will be the best places to catch Gary over the coming months. But there are rumours that Gary is working on an HOUR-LONG THEATRICAL EXTRAVAGANZA called POLAROID SUITCASE, which we'll tell you more about when we hear more! Rumour also has it that, hot on the heels of his Sex Dummy EP, Gary is BACK IN THE STUDIO recording NEW SONGS for a FULL-LENGTH ALBUM which is due to be released in the summer!! Hopefully the album will contain some or even all of the tracks on the EP, but we've heard that some of the extra song titles on the new album will be Catwalk Women, Prince Charles and Is My Toaster Sentient? Gary is apparently going to be ready to unveil these new songs in a special gig at the end of this month! We'll let you know more details when they come up!!

On top of this, we have seen some FANTASTIC NEW PHOTOS of Gary, which we are just DYING to show you on the site! More news about them later!!!!

As for me and Michelle, well, we feel a little bit guilty. In his letter to us, Gary said that he thought we ought to change our names and form a band!! But with our A-Levels coming up, it's been very difficult to do that!! I wanted to call our band
The Dummigurrlz but Michelle says we should be called Toxic Clock Syndrome. I hate to sound thick, but I don't really understand that name. We spoke to Gary's manager about it and said we were sorry we hadn't done it yet, but he just told us that being a pop star is very difficult and we'd be better off going to college and getting a decent job at somewhere like Dixons.

MORE NEWS LATER, GARY CHUMS!!
