Notes

Special Jubilee Mayhem

Wilson + full supporting cast in a punk rock special - The Racehorse, Northampton NN1 - Monday 3rd June 2002.

Pat Says

Thought folks might enjoy a brief round-up of the various kinds of pop entertainment available to the lucky British punter on the 50th anniversary of our sovereign's accession to the throne.

First off, Wilson Headstone spills his guts on the Racehorse punk rock all-dayer:

The Great Jane Goes-Shopping having set out to recreate the Spirit of '77 with a punk rock knees-up, the Jubilee was well and truly stuffed in Northampton NN1. The sun shone and we enjoyed looted champagne and a great deal of herb. There was a Union Jack with a dirty word on it and a big bloke with a load of punk records and a smoke machine, whose entire family were through the doors on the stroke of three o'clock. P-Hex graced us with Tarantino Funk and a truly, authentically incompetent God Save The Queen; some band with inflammable dreadlocks and jungle elephants made a punky ska sort of row; UK Waste are just unbelievable altogether - what are they playing at, eh? What's it all about? - Screwface did Full Metal Jackoff by the Dead Kennedys and Wilson did Police and Thieves.

After the raffle we played God's Green Earth and told entire swathes of British society to go and feck themselfs with a stick at night, entirely careless of the possible consequences. People were weeping in the aisles. Several floppy-haired types from villages were trapped in the alley where Peter Wyngarde was arrested for cottaging and triumphantly torched by the inflamed republican mob. A nice family day out alltogether, concluding in a blaze of Raki, reggae and barely suppressed ultraviolence at Shakespeare Villas. Marvellous!

Max Eider writes from our capital city, London:

"Glad to see you celebrated the Jubilee with respect, Pat. Wish I'd been there. Tamaki and I watched the bash on TV - I thought Tamaki was going to do herself an injury laughing. Nice touch failing to turn up Rod Stewart's mike for his big moment during the final gross-out version of 'All you need is love'. Oh, wow, and of course there was Queen (QUEEN, geddit?) without the singer (or the bass player, come to that - did he die too?). And Brian May played God Save the Queen on the roof. Really, if you'd set out to take the piss, you couldn't have done a better job. Who said it was the Americans who didn't have a sense of irony?"
