Q & A with Phill Jupitus
I first became aware of Phill Jupitus in the mid 1980s around the time of Red Wedge and The Housemartins and things like that. (As you probably know already) Mr Jupitus is a key member of the splendid Idiot Bastard Band, he has directed great pop videos for artists such as Billy Bragg, he's a decent cartoonist, he's been an honorary member of two of the best British music acts of all time (The Bonzos, and The Blockheads), he's written brilliant sleevenotes for Ian Dury compilations, he's penned the forwards of books about The Specials, he's been a DJ, a performance poet, a stand-up, he's performed in the hit musical Hairspray and he's been a regular of TV shows like Never Mind The Buzzcocks and Q.I. and he's been on loads of radio things too blah blah blah. There are worse people in the world than Phill Jupitus...
