Number seven: Killing sound: The bug versus the rootsman.

The Impostume only leaves the house for three people these days, Kevin Martin, David Thomas and Juana Molina. What can I possibly say about the man that hasn't already been said? Nowt. This link (back when Kevin was still using lots of his Techno-Animal effects in his Bug set) will doubtless express just why he is England's most exciting and worthwhile human being. Have I ever had a better experience than seeing either Techno Animal or the Bug live? No.* Do I slavishly worship the ground upon which his podgy shadow falls. Yep.

Arise Sir Kev of err.....Brixton.

Coincidently, I too, only leave the house for exceptional musical experiences. Indeed, I'm just on my way out for my yearly pilgramage to see New Model Army at the Astoria...

You can take the boy out of Yorkshire... etc

No 'No Rest' actually - though a cracking run through The Hunt ("this song was a big hit for some Brazilian friends of ours, Sepultura"), but it feels a little 'funny' these days, to howl along to a track that endorses tabloid friendly vigilantism...
