The fella that used to be in Game On with Samantha Janus and the ginger tosser went to the same school as me, but I never knew him. My brother might've done, though, as he was in the same year, I reckon? I can ask him next time we speak, so I'll let you know around Christmas time!
 
Now I think about it, my brother was once at a Frank Black (of Pixies fame) solo gig. EVeryone else was only interested in hearing the Pixies' songs, so were standing at the back with their arms folded. Tom, who is a bit of a Frank Black fan, had been dancing away at the front all by himself. In between songs, a chorus of requests for Pixies' songs arose from the audience, and Frank Black silenced everyone, pointed at my brother and said: "I wanna know what this man wants to hear". Tom shouted the name of a song (I forget which) and he just launched into it. Great stuff, I wish I'd been there!

Ring him NOW! This is important.
Have you seen the time? :laugh:

I couldn't even remember the fella's name, but I just looked it up. He is known as Ben Chaplin. Been in some Hollywood stuff too, looking at his IMDB bit.

Spect you'd be ahead of him now though, if you put yer mind to it and pedalled really hard, that is.
He was/is one of those annoying buggers who are good at everything they turn their hand to. So I doubt it.
