Resplendent in warpaint, wampum beads and silk swimsuit via Cardin, armed simply with a tomahawk and vibragun, he returns to the napalmed ruins of London to resurrect his sister and wrest from the disgusting Bishop Beesley and his ambitious henchwomen the black field which has diffracted the cosmos and set the area spinning at super-speed in the direction of its personal ultimate resolution. Lock up your daughters, conceal your stash, maintain to the shadows."

Jerry inhabits an international at conflict with itself and, armed purely with an occasional "vibragun" seems to struggle "against history" for the liberty of "randomness" opposed to the straitlaced conventions exemplified through his brother Frank. after all Jerry's quest, indirect because it is, is likely to be extra creative than political.

"Jerry didn't brain the bombs up to the rock scene. He wouldn't care what they despatched as long as it wasn't Simon and Garfunkel."
