WEIRDEST MOMENT ON THE JOB? "A few weeks ago I played at a warehouse party in Shoreditch, London, attended by some of the most interesting people I've seen in years - two crazy people working the door resembled an African witch doctor and something like Snuffleupagus crossed with a wookie. I really lost my concentration when this drag queen wearing nothing but a wig and some lips that resembled a giant vagina came up to me and said, 'Ooh, look at you, honey - you're like an unbridled colt or something... so wild!' I started laughing so hard I stopped the wrong turntable and left a few seconds of silence."
