18 june 2005 – for all it’s righteous anarchist posturing, flannel’s biggest known tune is (let’s all go to a) ketamine party. it’s a song all about a horse tranquillizer which became a popular drug of choice on the uk underground scene in the 1990s.

the song itself got previewed on the uk charity show children in need. don’t ask.

tonight i am performing the tune with bloke and stan, but not as flannel. stan is conducting a 20-piece samba band who are playing it on their drums and joining in the chorus.

it is quite surreal.

carnival collective were amazing, as per. samba mixed with ska, punk reggae, who would have guessed it?!!!!

during flannel’s own set, i mouth off about how we’ve been telling the british public to demonstrate against the governemnt for years without anyone taking too much notice, and then geldof comes along and suddenly it’s happening. this is more like it….

something about the past seems resolved. i was hoping for some photos but i can’t seem to make the program work. stand by for some after i get back from glastonbury. see ya then!
