‘We had a couple of lifelines to the world and Limelight was one of them. I don’t know how we would have breathed publicity-wise if it weren’t for Limelight and The Little Express in Canada. It was an essential breathing tube for us. It was the paper-and-ink internet. Limelight was the internet with added staples.’ - ANDY PARTRIDGE
 
‘Limelight and The Little Express did us proud in putting our name about in the early days.’ - COLIN MOULDING
