The answer here lies in the fact that, in later years, Bill Beaumont used to appear as a stunt double for Dave, presumably whilst he was off ferriting or somesuch.
The thing that Marc was the most famous for was that rumour about him swallowing sperm and ending up in hospital. It was a sport but I don't think it's been accepted at the olympics yet. Not officially anyway.
Given the number of things he admits to, I think we can believe him when he says that's just a rumour.
Yeah, I've seen him get quite cross when asked about it. Probably because it's the only thing people ask about and it was such a long time ago. I've heard this urban myth applied to other celebrities as well.I had a few pints with Dave Ball and The Go-Betweens' label boss a few years ago. A very, very nice chap, Mr Ball. Knows his shit when it comes to northern soul, let me tell you.
I first heard that story told about Rod Stewart before Marc Almond ever had a record out.
Hey, I have been so lucky to come across some of your photography work.. and its simply put.. amazing.. I have something I would really like to talk to you about. If you would be so kind as to email me.. i would love to tell you what that is..firstname.lastname@example.org you. hope to hear from you soon.-PS
my word you lot are keen on swallowing sperm - now what about the bleedin' football ?i blame the polari lessons...
To go back to the original question. Marc would take the piss and say yes, Livingston FC as they play at Almondvale.Dave would also take this piss, say yes and answer with Hull Kingston Rovers.Fact.
