i got fucking stuck with him at the pub as me and a mate were going home and i did't have the heart to say no. Fucking crack head. I didn't know he still did it or how strange he was. He felt the wrath of my vacuum attachment though.
I got Madonna's big dick comin' outta my left ear......
But anyway how good is Paddys inpromptu poem to Ladine. One beat,two beat... called the missus weetabeet for ages after. Anyone know what the deal is with the toy buses that are all over knock knock's house (even porn mags are hidden in one). fuck me Morells house is grim innit? whats the crack with the gas bottles.
The buses are an interest/hobby of Gavin's Dad. On the Romeo Brass DVD it is mentioned in the commentary I think. It was originally going to be a fully formed part of the story, and some other scenes were shot to show Gavin's Dad restoring a miniature bus, and later taking Gavin and Romeo for drive in it. You can see a brief bit of this scene being filmed in the Directors Diary on the DVD... I have also put a couple of stills on the Romeo Brass page.
As for the gas bottles, they were Morrell's Dad's.
Thats why your the man Dave. to be honest I knew that, just wanted to steer the conversation back towards the film rather than Vaccuum cleaner beatings and such. Romeo Brass is up there with my all time favorites. Glad Paddy got a BAFTA eventually that performance deserved one. (although he got it for my Wrongs)
