Has anyone ever seen this 1994 interview with BF, which was deemed to be so dull that it was converted into dingbats format to make it more interesting but essentially unreadable? Just wondering if it is possible to translate it to see what was so dull about it?

Just found out that the actual decipherable (English) version of this Dingbats interview was printed at the back of the same magazine (Ray Gun). Is anyone able to share a scan please....if only to see why the interview was deemed so dull in the first place!

From Wiki:
Ray Gun produced over 70 issues from 1992 through 2000.

Maybe it would have lasted beyond infancy had it engaged journalists with the wit to get the most from their subjects or, where they can't, to make 'dull' entertainng. It's linguistics, not rocket science.

I`ve never seen this. It was from a time where I would have gratefully embraced everything Ferry. Anyway it`s linguistics, right? So why be concise when discussing music? It`s volatile by nature. I always employ an oblique glance. It doesn`t make many friends, though.
