Terry Nutkins is a much loved TV animal observer in the UK; rose to fame on Jonny Morris' 'Animal Magic' and went on to present 'The Really Wild Show'.

Would you class this as 'Off Topic' Markus? :smile:

When I was at Heathrow a year or so back guess who was in the waiting area near me - none other than Television's Terry Nutkins.

He had a look at some magazines in the shop, was very tall, and then left.

Top bloke. I was starstruck.

This is such a cool board where people talk about influences in Pacific 202 and one of them just happens to be the guy what wrote it.

gerald is also credited as composer on the 'pacific state' track on quadrastate.

one of the b-side tracks of gerald's 'f/x' 12" is called 'specific hate'. same chord-theme, funky-drummer-style drums and some whisteling. He did his own version.

I guess this was caused by problems with rights or royalties or something, after gerald left the band and 808 state had the hit with 'pacific 202'.
