Shane MacGowan has contributed to a documentary on poet, musician and purveyor of the spirit of rock ‘n’ roll, Jock Scot.
Edinburgh raised Scot began his musical career as a roadie, but after realising he just wasn’t very good at it – ended up becoming more of a spiritual advisor / general entertainer whose role was to “alleviate boredom and keep the spirits high”. He accompanied legendary bands on tour including The Clash, Madness and Ian Dury And The Blockheads, and is a close friend of Shane MacGowan.
Shane is one of a number of friend and admirers who have given a testimony for the film – entitled: ‘Jock Scot: Services to Rock and Roll.
You can read more about the film and this legendary character in the September issue of Mojo magazine.
