“My karate moves”

WHO ARE YORKSHIRE’S FINEST IN CULTURE, SPORT AND MUSIC?
Glass Mountain, Thank, Household Dogs, Bloodhound and Team Picture are all very amazing.

Myself cloned 11 times. Four of me are playing bass, two drummers, three synths and a vocalist who screams uncontrollably but in all the wrong places. My Bez is me again, but naked, and holding a big neon sign pointing at all of me.

GO READ THIS BOOK: Nothing to Envy – Barbara Demick.
GREAT LOST BAND/ARTIST: Fighting Caravans.
WOULDN’T BE CAUGHT DEAD SUPPORTING: The Sherlocks.

Nothing. I showcase my karate moves while exiting the stage.
