Matt: Was there any songs you
wish you had played but never
got the chance to?
Tony: I think the only song that
I always wanted to play but it
never happened was Your Crusade
for Perverse. That tune kicks
ass. Maybe if there's a Perverse
album show in the future I could
come back and play that one.
Matt: From the admittedly few jj

home'. Why is this?
Tony: We did play chemical
number 1 for quite a while. But

Matt: What are your favourate
memories of being in jj?
Tony: Favourite memories...there
are too many. First gig at

tour around the Greatest Hits,
The massive US Tour in a tiny
van, Sonic mania festival in
Japan, supporting the Wonder
Stuff at wolves civic, Glasgow
barrowlands, Birmingham academy
and sheps bush empire each time,
the Australian tour 2 years back
especially the Sydney Enmore

has through that. That's some of
the best memories.

have a nice christmas, and I
wish you well for the future.
