Cheers Chris. I didn't mind Anti Pasti either - to be honest I found the spat with Flux a bit pathetic. Yes, I still have their records and still have a soft spot for the 4 sour points ep - and yes, various bands I was in did the obligatory cover of No Government.

Have a good one at the TV smith do and the rest.

All the best for 2013
