I've just spotted that the novelist Iain Banks is championing Screen-Freak as his "ultimate lyric" in the Let’s Get Lyrical campaign created and run by Edinburgh UNESCO City of Literature
 
Quote:
.....My ultimate lyric, though, comes from Clive James, when he was first collaborating with Pete Atkin.  It’s from a song called ‘Screen Freak’, about somebody obsessed with movies. He writes about seeing Atlantis, Atlanta up in flames and plywood cities meeting their doom. Perfection

Though he had no great gifts of personality or mind, he was quite well respected.

Hi Ian,
 
I did not put a link in because there is a link to the at the foot of Iain's full posting. If you don't want to use that one, then you might like to try this, or maybe this.

Banks' piece seems to have been edited rather ruthlessly: I can't imagine him quoting from Screen Freak without getting 'Atlantis down in bubbles, and Atlanta up in flames' precisely correct.  
On the other hand,  I can't imagine him picking Desperados Under the Eaves over Poor, Poor Pitiful Me either (or spelling it wrong).
