A few years ago a friend of Nolan, a guy he has known since he was 18, gave him the heads up concerning his burgeoning cult status in the UK: "He said 'Nolan, they're playing some of your tunes at these things called all-nighters. You've got to check this out.'"

A love of live music pervades the club, rather than the sweaty media ambition of the mainstream, whose godheads can be identified as the millionaire prefab boy bands who some of us have learned to avoid.

The evening was planned as a retrospective of the album that changed everything for British music. Never Mind The B******* sprang angrily into life in 1977, an original musical work that openly criticised a culturally cobwebbed United Kingdom. But the organisers do not get politeness this evening. Instead they get cat calls and verbal threats.

Plan B hit the 100 Club as his album 'Ill Manors' had hit the number one spot. I have to say and I have been saying ever since that this is one of the best gigs I have ever been to. Enormous statement but every word of it is true.
