he fought that we should be free to listen to Shakira

Today is Mr Sharp's birthday. He supports Partick Thistle and is very, very ancient.

He fought as a child soldier back in the old Punk Wars - playing the Sex Pistols before he could walk.

Back when I was just a cub I would sit at his feet and take in tales and cigarette smoke.

These days the packs of Marlboro have gone but the stories are still there. Buy him a gin and tonic and ask him about the old days. Postcard Records. Jean Jacques Burnel. The Wombles.

But don't talk of this.

Mr Sharp - sir - Bear salute you. Here's some Orange Juice from 1983.
