Sporting top hat and claw­hammer coat, cummerbund, white shorts and trainers, complete with 'Dulux dog' (wearing red bow tie) Mike Warnke gazes from the album sleeve the living embodiment of its title. The ex-satanist/dope-dealing freak/Vietnamese war veteran who was converted during his military service, is about the wackiest audio product in the Kingdom - no missus he's not a singer, he's a comedian.  Mike's monologues are usually intricately woven, simple, real-life stories that end with raucous hilarity and razor-sharp spiritual conclusions.  For those of you familiar with this superb prophetic funny-man, this is not the best of his stuff but maybe we Brits aren't ready for him yet 'in the raw'. I for one earnestly hope that Mike swiftly tours Britain and gets into our album collections. This is a sharing recording; if you thinks it's overpriced at £6.49 (it is quite short), then get a bunch of people to buy it co-operatively. I don't see why a single guy recorded live retails for the same price as a music album (roll on the death of copyright) but I'm sure that having heard him you'll want to hear more.
