When I first encountered Norman Cook, he was just the bass player in The Housemartins.
I felt betrayed by Norman at the time.
There was an interview with the band in Smash Hits where, amongst the talk of collecting crisp packets, Norman announced that he didn’t really like the music The Housemartins made, and he preferred dance music.
At the time, this was the most heinous of proclamations.
As you will have noticed from this week’s Friday Night Music Club, I got over it.
Here’s some storming Norman:
Fatboy Slim – The Rockefeller Skank
and the source material:
Just Brothers – Sliced Tomatoes
Or should that be sauce material….
More terrible puns soon (and some tunes too).
