I didn’t tell you, I’ve got a gig on Saturday. Using Man Maths, the most highly paid gig I’ve ever had: 40 bales of hay.
(Forty bales at five euros a bale from the local agricultural co-op... blimus, that’s 200 euros!)
I could say the last gig I played was first support for Iggy Pop at the Brixton Academy in 1991, which I agreed to do for the princely sum of £20.
But I’d be lying.
I did a couple of gigs in Minneapolis about ten years ago, for free.
Iggy Pop was the one before that.
And I’m still waiting for the £20.
