I was at Art College with Geno Crewsy,
who, with his band the Crewsy Fixers
was a wonderfully wild unforgettable
performer on a mission to
save Rock and Roll from
phoneyness and complication
and return it to its wild hillbilly roots…..

This is where Kathy and me
stayed for her birthday treat this year....
In recent years, songs have come from these
visits to decaying seaside towns...
Rochester High Street being a recent example...
Big Brother was watching us...
as we watched the apististras flying
as we came up for air
on the road to Clacton Pier...
Happy summer days in Lancaster...

This is us at The Wilmington Arms Clerkenwell
A shadowy frontman harangues the fanatical audience....
Next Stop...The Railway Hotel, Southend
Wednesday 31st July 8pm
with support from
Local Legend David Woodcock
and his famously falling off glasses
The Wilmington interior prior
to us opening the doors...a truly lovely venue, sadly bought up
by the ghastly food police and soon to be turned into
yet another gastro pub where you can go and watch the
aspirational rich cream their pants over gourmet burgers
and responsibly scourced rockets.
Mckean practicing the ending to Penge..
and opening the show, the slightly blurred Jerkcurb Himself.......

The Jeans Of Aft
(Formerly known as
The Jeans Of Nencini)
Just a quick word about my jeans,
in case you were wondering..
I've had these jeans for all the time
I've been with my partner Kathy Round, 13 years I think,
although originally they were hers.
They are levi 501's and 30 inches round the waist.
They used to be called "The Jeans of Nencini" because Pete Nencini,
the noted artist and designer,
gave them to Kathy because
they didnt fit his wife any more
( we used to all work together at
Camberwell College of Art).
I have worn them at some stage
in every live performance I've done
since the first Afterrabbit gig in 1993
and I have added a patch or
stitched something to them every time,
so they are in effect a map
of my performing life since then-
Just thought you'd like to know...
Come and see them
in action on my legs tommorrow
(Friday 26th July )at
The Wilmington Arms
69 Rosebery Avenue, London EC1
we'll be on after the lovely Jerkcurb
at 9-30 ish and its only
a fiver on the door
