He is Generation X. Weaned on punk and indie he survived Thatcher's Britain and the Cold War, then high on ecstasy he raved in a field all weekend – and still got up for work on Monday. Fearless, happy and free until God and the Devil made a bet and all he was left with was his record collection. Now he's a lost voice, drowned out by the ranting of the baby boomers and millennials, but he will be heard again, even if those words might be his last. The Book of Job for the 21st century.
