'Contributory Negligence' - one of my earliest poems, about judges' attitudes to rape. Sadly still as relevant today.
Recorded at Rebellion Festival in Blackpool this year (2013)
'Looters', 'Bye Bye Banker', 'Maggots 1 Maggie 0' and 'Libyan Students From Hell' live at the Poetry Folk Fusion Festival in Amsterdam in February 2013...
I've been gigging occasionally with my mate Otway for over 20 years now. Otway has always done his unique version of Bachman Turner Overdrive's 'You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet' and I thought it'd be a good idea to do a simultaneous translation to make the lyrics easier to understand for any Germans who happened to be in tha audience. Recorded at Glastonwick.
The very best video of my stuff I've found on the net. Hats off to Andy Fleming. He head a piece, he liked it, he animated it. Didn't even tell me. Respect. True punk DIY!
Brilliant cult German film 'Doppelpack' about two pissed punks wandering round Dortmund (that is LITERALLY what the film is about - it's the ultimate 'inaction movie!') Myself and my band Barnstormer have three songs in it. Here's the ending of the film...
This was on BBC News at One in 1989 when 56 of us made a trip to the still very Stalinist Albania to see England play Albania for the first time in a World Cup qualifier. Myself and my great friend Steve Drewett from the Newtown Neurotics ended up doing the very first punk gig ever in Albania in the basement of the Hotel Dajti in Tirana..to an audience of the rest of the tour party and some very confused Albanian Sigurimi (secret police)
This one is about growing older doing what I love - using words to entertain, inspire and annoy (some people!)
This one was made by my old mates at Cherry Red, with whom I did my first two albums "Ranting At The Nation' and 'Sawdust And Empire' in 1983 and 1984. It was at the party to celebrate their 30th anniversary.....'Russians in the DHSS' was my most widely-heard early poem. 'Asylum-Seeking Daleks' brings the theme up to date...
