ADW has taken a stanley blade to our post-boom wreckage in more ways than one. carving numerous stencils and hurling well-aimed barrages of humour at the myopic fools that landed us here. We were more than a little peeved to see him getting his knuckles rapped at the Kings of Concrete. Redmonk caught up with him and found out what happened.

A wee while ago rabble teamed up with Boomtown, the UK’s maddest festival for a very unique competition.

By being force-fed the phrase ‘anti-social behaviour’ they now believe this phrase exclusively applies to youth.
