Professor Longhair was a very odd bluesman from New Orleans, he played honkytonk piano and wore a turban. Sultry downs-syndrome warbler Lily Allen used the hook from 'big chief' in one of her hits. Check out 'crawfish fiesta'.
Alternatively dont and just watch X-factor instead.

Maybe its just middle class white boys perogitive but ive always been of the opinion that hip hop was at its best during the 90's. Solid hooks etc and people actually being good at rapping rather thanblahblahwankgobbleblah[insert usual whinge commonplace in music circles about 'contemporary urban music' being utterly vacuous for a myriad of reasons here]wankwankblah. The fact that the best big uk rap prospect since..well pretty much ever has had to make it properly mainstream by making awful hip house records says a lot.

Road to nowhere (or Spital tongues, slightly less poetic)
A Nike box i drew on, CHECK ME OUT AND CHILL!
Finally, me and former AC Milan midfielder Bish have a new rowing machine, we are probably going to enter some sort of mixed-race triathalon. If such an event exists we will win it. MARK MY WORDS WE WILL WIN IT. Heres a nice picture of Bish sacking his own mum from his textile factory whilst converting carbs.

I actually forgot to put this on earlier, this is a picture i did a while ago for a flyer of my favourite tramp in Newcastle, he goes by lots of different names (none of them i remember) but hes always struck me a quite the gent, ive never seen him geting lairy and he always seems to 'keep it real' (i suppose its pretty much a prerequisite of the outdoor lifestyle) Hes eating a record because im all hip and that (got my own blog and everything)
And finally a bit of wor Popeye, my favourite cartoon character barring that kid who looked like Carlos Tevez off 'mysterious cities of gold'
I think this cartoon was made in the 30s or 40s but its still pretty mindblowing today, hats of to you Dave Fleischer
(or whats left of you seeing as you've probably been dead for around 30 years)

Went on a hunt round my dads 'hoarding room' at the coast, i'd love to get through all of it but i think weeks wouldnt be long enough, still found some interesting stuff
Derek Pell, one of the oddest books ive ever read.
I can think of a few people who'd want to get their filthy mits on the one above
A nice cup of tea safely smashed in and i was hurtling back to town through the picturesque suburbs of shiremoore and longbenton on Nexus' finest.
