Ian Dury, sadly missedLord Upminster did have a bit of bother after this was released...today he'd have snowflakes screaming for his head...... when I look at the motley crew of failed circus clowns on the mtro and in the street daily, I can't help imagining them singing the refrain ?I'm spasticus... I'm spasticus... not for quite the same reasons as Mr Dury meant...
Apparently Gilmour did a gig with audience there a couple of years ago. I think it might have been the mayor of Naples told him, I've seen you here before. He'd been a young kid skulking in the background in 1971.The audience look bored stiff.
One evening in 1971-2, I was having a quietish drink in the Smack, Leigh-on-Sea, with my friend and the 2 brothers we used to pit-crew for in Clubman's Formula. At the other side of the bar another group of blokes were having a riotous piss-up. One guy in particular was centre of attention and had the others in fits.The wonderful Viv Stanshall!
As an aside the you tube poster must have been a Captain Beefheart fan as his avatar at top left is the cover of Trout Mask replica
