Seasick Steve at the Mojo Honours List in London

Rotten accepted an award on behalf of the Sex Pistols, launching into a tirade about Britain: “Look at what Britain is becoming. You can’t drink, you can’t smoke” before calling the audience a “bunch of mellow piss wipes”, nice. My favourites The Specials came out to accept the Hall of Fame award and other notable musicians in attendance were Richard Hawley, Nick Cave and the kids from The Last Shadow Puppets.

Best dressed of the evening surely goes to Seasick Steve who stood out in his uniform of denim and braces. I usually wouldn’t advocate the crime of denim dream (i.e. denim jeans and jacket) but Steve has the natural charm to carry it off.
