Artefacts #005: Letter from Naomi, July 1997
Back in 1997, in the wake of the heartbreaking Ptolemaic Terrascope interview, I wrote a fan letter to Damon & Naomi. To be honest I can’t remember if this was a real letter or an email. In my head it was a real letter with a stamp and everything. But that maybe the romantic in me trying to convince myself that I’d written a proper, old fashioned fan letter.
For the sake of argument let’s assume that it was real.
This was, I’m fairly certain, the first fan letter I’d written to anyone. I had previously joined the Motorheadbangers fan club but don’t remember ever sending Lemmy a gushing letter.
The response I got was this lovely, and very real, letter from Naomi where she touches on the PT interview, and the first Terrastock festival.
There’s more beneath the envelope but… I need some secrets.
The last line read:
Congratulations on your new baby
That new baby graduated from university last month.
I thought I’d just go through some of the stuff I’ve acquired over the years and post about it here… how interesting the posts (and artefacts) are will undoubtedly vary!
