Westwood interview with The Guardian
Question Time: Tim Westwood
Westwood is the man. I can't believe people still bring that old tired rhetoric about him being from Lowestoft and him not supporting British artists. It's stupid. Nobody's asking why Funk Master Flex is still DJ'ing at his age. Whether people like it or not, Westwood is easily as important as Flex, or Clue, or anybody else. You only need to listen to an episode of Juan Epstein to find out how respected he is.
On a semi-related note, [I didn't post this link just to draw attention to this fact, as you know I generally stick up for Westwood] I'm performing at a party with Westwood on Wednesday. That is going to be big dogs. Last time I performed on the same bill as the Big Dog I tore down. Shout outs to the Islington Academy crew.
