Toun legends: Billy George photographs Disco Deek on Bruce Street

Two toun legends, one stunning image. Billy George’s brilliant photograph of a lonely Disco Deek walking along Bruce Street sums up our times, our town and our country.

On the bright side Donald and Stuart Mackay have written a TwinsTown song about it all. It’s called The Girl on the TV. I think it’s currently unfinished. As are we, hopefully. We are unfinished too. The Smiths remind us, “There Is A Light That Never Goes Out”.

Take me out tonight

Where there’s music and there’s people

And they’re young and alive

Take me out tonight

Because I want to see people

And I want to see life
