Pah! My media presence continues to grow, unbidden, like a medieval pestilience...

Chris, choking on tears of laughter, tells me I've just appeared on BBC2 on an Indian Cookery program! The fuckers have been after me for weeks, hassling me for my recipe for Astral Bombay Cauliflower...

The programme's producer chased me across a field a few weeks ago (no lie!), but I didn't like the snotty-nosed Hoxton bitch, so I refused permission for them to broadcast, digitally or otherwise, my likeness or any caricature or analogue thereof.

I am aghast! The BBC will be hearing from my solicitor.




Uber-satirist Steve Aylett, the Anti-Matter Neil Gaiman and author of such luminous, bejewelled goodies n oddities such as "The Caterer," "Fain the Sorcerer," etc checks in with news of a live appearance:

"By the way, in case you're interested I'm doing a reading/performance on July 22 at stand-up venue the Troy Club, CROBAR, 17 Manette Street, London W1D 4AS, W1D 4AS (just next to Foyles), starts around 7.30pm. Other performers are Toby Hadoke, Liam Mullone, Eric's Tales Of The Sea. MC is Andrew O'Neill..."

Steve is responsible (tho he'd prob. deny it) for the multi-layered Kilgore Troutesque beast that is Jeff Lint. If'n you still don't know who Steve is, then I suggest you pinch yrself, wake up, then run on over to his website and score some of his cool shit pronto.

Says Mr. Aylett: "Haven't done a proper stand-up club before & probably will be torn to shreds. I might take along an old-man mask and do the whole thing as Lord Pin."


Dom has posted this already, I know, but what the hell, it's produced/directed by our old friend Stodges, who's, like, one of the most totally excellent people on the planet...and the song's total genius!

"Captain Moregone" by UWAKEUS

I need to catch up with him, but I think this is his son Tim's band, and what a wonderfully rawkous chunk of Rural Pirate Punk it is too! Looks like a chip/old block type situation. The song's really great fun - drunken singalong stuff - and I wish them all the best of luck! Anyone reading this who wants to offer 'em a deal or something, let me know...

Love the muttered piratical "Fuckin' Wankers" at the end...
