The Mercury Music Awards

We were at the rehersals, and something didn't feel right. So we called in some friends......

The El Rascino's were in town, and we put them on. The normally play for Basement Jaxx, but not tonight.

I couldn't make it to the performance cos' of the tube strike, so I got my Cousin, El Semtexo to cover for me.

El Semtexo did his thing on stage - I doubt we'll ever see him again!

Dizz didnt get it this year, but he's got one of those awards anyway.
We had a wicked night, and it was a privilege to be at the Mercs.

Time to celebrate with Uncle Jack!
