saw him once nearly four years ago, performing at a Joe Strummer tribute event He was amazing, did a stunning version of Sexuality, and a great adlib filled Great Leap Forwards - changed the line about singing in tune to a reference to how Joe didn't mind, added a self depreciating reference to him having a mitsibushi in reply to "mixing pop and politics he asks me what the use is" and that "the revolution is only a ethical t-shirt away" My mum (I don't even know how she'd even heard of him) thought he was great too.

he was certainly great when he played in my village in December. He changed the words of sexuality to sing as beastiality and he brought a line about talking cats into shes got a new spell. All in all it was a great night out made all the better when billy shuck hands with us all from the stage. I have the set list too which is a nice momento. He did the joe Strummer tribute thing, Jhonny Clash that id never heard before, blessed be
