Wonder if he fancies Prezza's wife because she's got big hair, too.

Imagine those two getting their barnets entangled, it'd be like the fluff in God's belly button.

Must agree,good interview.I also got to see JCC perform just over a month ago ,just as good as the past times -fast talking non-stop show of 80 min.A laugh a minute.
Opening for him was his tour manager,Johnny Green who was the Clashes tour manager back in the day

good program mainly for JCC himself. Could have probably done without most the luvvies banging on. Some interesting stuff - living with half the velvet underground etc.

didn't realise they'd used chicken town in the sopranos. Also heard a bit of that PLan B 'Ill Manors' stuff the other day. Sounds good until it goes all sweary andlike, you know, rap.
