Thanks Padraig and Blacktulip for the stuff re :Adam. I always found that song IMMENSELY helpful growing up and realising I was mixed race.

Phil Best's latest vehicle, Consumer Electronics, supported Sleaford Mods at the 100 Club last night and also on Thursday, when I went.

Here's part of what I heard and saw with mine own eyes and ears

There was autoerotic nipple tweaking, inchoate screeching, baleful droning (Russell Haswell working an eventually lager-soaked box festooned with plug-in leads), pink noise, a fucked up photo album, a wrestle over an audience members mobile phone, violent snogging and tit slapping. Quite a show. Funny. The shouts of "you fat bastard" and "get off the stage you fat cunt" didn't phase him, the James Whale of power electronics, at all. Towards the end there were three 100 Club staff to the side of the stage making desperate throat cut gestures which were totally ignored.

I'm glad they're not supporting at Brighton tonight, though I expect I'll still have to endure Mark Wynn who supported Sleaford Mods no-show in Brighton last Spring.

Sudden Infant, the first support act on Thursday, were great, their Joke Lanz is a showman.

it would almost worth paying to see Sleaford mods to see that. I suppose you could always leave before they come on.

Consumer Electronics are as old as dads, occasionally great though.

Just read this on Phil's wiki "In 1998 Best published his doctoral thesis at Durham University entitled "Apocalypticism in the Fiction of William S. Burroughs, J.G. Ballard and Thomas Pynchon" and later received a doctorate in English literature." Figures

I was at the 2nd night at the 100 Club where CM did a slightly different set and Best kept his clothes on.

I think they are a lot more interesting now they have Russell Haswell with them. He isn't "as old as Dads" and neither is Sarah as far as I can tell. Not my Dad anyway.

Their set finished with Best doing solo spoken word: "I hate men, and their violence, and their weak, murderous minds".

I thought Mark Wynn and Sleaford Mods were great but Sudden Infant were a bit too normal. Top night out though.

Christ, Russell really needs to change up his outfits, I never realized how much that useless prick Pete Swanson tries to look like him. Scared me away from this stuff more than Best ever could.

I must have pulled the shorter straw with the first night, it was a much better Sleaford Mods performance at the Haunt in Brighton the following Saturday too.

Was surprised to learn that Russell Haswell is married to Amanda Donohoe.
