on the track, Preposterous Tales,
"They’re very funny, I Ludicrous, and I like a lot of their stuff. They rip off The Fall a lot, ripping off riffs and everything, but I don’t mind that because they make me laugh. If it makes me laugh, it’s OK. That’s a good basic rule. Pavement don’t make me laugh. They don’t make me angry, though. I can’t get angry anymore about people copying The Fall because there’s just been so many. We’ve been ripped off so many times. I Ludicrous are a good funny Northern band. Like the Macc Lads? Well, it’s not quite the same thing, is it?"
