A few brief words about me…

(Not that you’ll read beyond the first paragraph…)

I would gladly give all my worldly possessions for 5 minutes in a room with Simon Cowell and a pointy stick with broken glass in it. I would then, cackling and weeping with joy, dance a jig on his remains with nailed boots on. I am also filled with bile at the Daily Mail, Richard Littlejohn and T4/E4 presenters. Seriously, I would vomit if I met one. All over their alternative retro-crap clothes. When did Sunday morning TV become the preserve of the hung-over teenager? Whatever happened to the Littlest Hobo? Did he finally find a stop, make a new friend and then settle down in a nice cosy kennel to make lots of Littler Littlest Hobo’s with Mrs Littlest Hobo?

(Got bored of reading this yet? Thought so. )

On a more positive note, I quite like the music of Tom Waits, Nick Cave, Richard Thompson, Julian Cope, The Pogues and various other weirdos who you probably wouldn’t want to sit next to on a bus for too long. I also ‘dig’ Ray Lamontagne, Sam Cooke and the Stone Roses. ‘The Band’ is one of my favourite records, along with ‘Astral Weeks’, ‘No Other’ and ‘Liege and Leif’. Sandy rocked like a mutha.

‘Ah’ you’re now thinking, ‘old fart eh? Like a comfy cardigan and some Horlicks before bed do you?’ Well, yes. I suppose so. All the rest is just a noise isn’t it?

Oh, and I can’t stand ‘cheese’ of any description either - unless it’s served on a plate with a cream cracker and a confident Merlot. As far as I’m concerned, ‘Grease’ is most definitely not the word. ‘Bollocks’ is.

(Wow, got this far did you? Too much time on your hands, eh? There’s a whole world out there you know. Seize it!!)

Heroes: Tim Buckley, Peter Cook, Christoper Lee, Swarb, my mate Ed, Stephen Fry, blah blah Ned’s Atomic Dustbin blah blah Bill Hicks etc…
