The Clash, what a great band. Jon saw them live and puts that gig up there along with The Sex Pistols as one of his most epic band nights ever. What was mine? Tricky one.
My first ever gig was the Stray Cats at Birmingham Odeon in 1980 and I've seen so many legendary acts over the years .....The Smiths, The Cult, The Cure, Siouxsie & The Banshees, Echo & The Bunnymen, Pulp, Prodigy, The Specials, Stone Roses, Hawkwind, Gong and Muse to name but a tiny few. Best of recent years has to be Pendulum.
What about you, dear readers - first gig, best band?
Anyway, back to clothes. What kind of crazy person puts purple with orange? Well, me and the person who made this coat for a start off.

There's been a couple of attempts at photographs this morning. I've realised that a late night, half a bottle of Pondicherry white rum (at £1.20 a litre) and big screen footie don't make for pretty peepers.
