Some words from “17” by Bill Drummond:

“What this bloke seemed to be saying to us was that if you want to do something,
don’t wait to be asked or given permission by anyone, be it your mother, teacher,
peer group, music press, record companies or art establishments.

The fact that you may lack confidence and don’t know what the f**k you
are trying to do should not be reasons for not doing whatever it is.

There will be a million people out there who will want to let you know that you are sh*t. Ignore them.
There will be others who think that without their validation what you are doing is worthless. Ignore them.

This, if anything, has been the guiding principle in everything that I have tried to do ever since.
I am a person riddled with insecurities but that one day in the Deaf School made me think ‘F**k ’em!’ “


Love always,
