FYI "Pee Pee Cluck Cluck" is not gibberish, it is a JA patios saying meaning follow closely behind. It derives from the behavior of chickens and the sound they make.

Echo Juliet

Fascinating, thanks David. I did wonder if Wrongtom had chosen chicken for our main course!!

Lovely to hear some more insights. I was booked to DJ the Funk & Soul Weekender in Margate and I had tickets for the Brixton gig. I was hugely looking forward to these, and perhaps other gigs on the tour, alas that's not to be. I've been a huge fan all my life and managed to catch his gigs in recent years at the Barbican, House of Common (supporting Madness) and Alexandra Palace. I managed to DJ a vinyl tribute to Toots in Brighton on the Sunday after his death, and last week I did a 2 hour tribute to Toots on Mixcloud which started with his first single and followed through to tracks from his recently released album. Check it out in the link below.
Lovely to hear Rhoda, she mentions some great bands, I've had the pleasure to see her DJ for the Selecter and I've DJ'd for her at Skamouth (Great Yarmouth), Skabour (Folkestone) and Southend.
