Somewhere out there tonight, Musical Youth are gigging. A back room of a pub in Slough or a lock-up garage in a South London back street.
Now re-badged Musical Middle-aged People, the lies they told on Blue Peter have taken their toll.
Far from being some kind of Ethiopian cooking pot as they then claimed, a ‘dutchie’ was actually a cannabis pipe.
They really shouldn’t have lied to Simon Groom like that, even though both him and his dog were shit compared to John Noakes and Shep.
Karma’s a bitch.
I hear it’s a crack pipe and not a dutchie they pass on the left-hand side these days and what was once a five-piece is now just a duo. Handy if you want to get your hands back on the crack pipe pronto but useless otherwise.
