The Jeans Of Aft
(Formerly known as
The Jeans Of Nencini)
Just a quick word about my jeans,
in case you were wondering..
I've had these jeans for all the time
I've been with my partner Kathy Round, 13 years I think,
although originally they were hers.
They are levi 501's and 30 inches round the waist.
They used to be called "The Jeans of Nencini" because Pete Nencini,
the noted artist and designer,
gave them to Kathy because
they didnt fit his wife any more
( we used to all work together at
Camberwell College of Art).
I have worn them at some stage
in every live performance I've done
since the first Afterrabbit gig in 1993
and I have added a patch or
stitched something to them every time,
so they are in effect a map
of my performing life since then-
Just thought you'd like to know...
Come and see them
in action on my legs tommorrow
(Friday 26th July )at
The Wilmington Arms
69 Rosebery Avenue, London EC1
we'll be on after the lovely Jerkcurb
at 9-30 ish and its only
a fiver on the door
