Alex Ogg presents a play in four acts.

It contains references to the Drug Addix and early days in Croydon. Fred Berk, of course, wrote Darling, let's have another baby which Kirsty recorded with Billy Bragg. Among the cast also are Captain Sensible, Rat Scabies and Chrissie Hynde. Not forgetting Xerxes!

Johnny Moped

PicStarring (in order of the size of their willies, er, I mean appearance): Johnny Moped, Captain Sensible, Martin Newell, Dave Berk, Kirsty McColl and introducing mystery man Xerxes. Well, it was a bit of a one off kids, how could we fail to have a Scratch reporter down there to record it for posterity. The mighty Johnny Moped band, reformed far the first time in 12 years, with rock god Johnny, in person, taking the microphone. Croydon's very own Robert Plant was back at the Marquee, bashing out the hits from his new album Searching for Xerxes, not to mention those classics from yester-year.

Frankly, it was a bit like a school reunion, with old friends iricludiing Xerxes himself turning up. The gig itself was a fine spectacle of rock power and the cheesy charisma that Johnny Moped brings to bear on an audience. Finding it impossible to get hold of the star for more than three minutes without interruptions from his: legions of loyal supporters, I left the tape running in the dressing room as we tried to sort out the history of one of nature's strangest phenomena.

Johnny Moped: I want you back for good
