Right, it's no secret how much I respect Andrew Weatherall.

It's also no secret that my two favourite British bands of all time are The Clash and The Pogues, so I was grinning like a Cheshire cat when Weatherall featured both in a recent radio broadcast about 'His London' - whats more he chose 'Rainy night in Soho' surely one of the most beautiful and affecting songs ever put on wax.
