He arrived sporting a cane and a black eye, mumbled something about not having a white (i.e. coked) or brown (i.e. skagged) Christmas and then launched himself in a hilarious defense of his friend Amy Winehouse and her hubby. The best line was: "I speak to Amy almost every day. She just wants her man back for Christmas. They are desperately in love". Spectacular.

Equally influenced by Chas & Dave and the Clash, their debut bears witness to the desperate beauty and battling British spirit of the fatally torpedoed ship, Albion’.
