Ben Watt, I owe you an apology! You came to the University Book Store in 1997 or maybe 1998 to read from your book Patient, about how you almost died and then almost got confined to the hospital for life. You were polite, warm, friendly, brave… and nobody wanted to talk about the book. Everyone wanted to talk about your music. This annoyed you, but you were too much of a gentleman to go off. I wish I’d helped you out, thrown you a line. But I didn’t. Your new stuff with Bernard Butler sounds atmospheric and melancholy, with the former Suede guitarist waiting not very patiently until he has a chance to go off, then going off. You’re a class act. Cheers. But here’s to a bit of going off when the spirit beckons—with a rude gesture. ANDREW HAMLIN
