Yesterday, the guy who runs the Internet caff where I have become a regular introduced me to Jay, The Only Black Man In Hove. The proprietor thought that I should meet him because Jay makes his living writing and remixing pop. Coming from Hove though, “Jay” turns out to be short for “Justin St Clair Thomas” and he used to work for Microsoft. We chatted and exchanged mobile numbers and MP3s. Damian Counsell, formerly of the Medical Research Council, and Justin St Clair Thomas, formerly of Microsoft; we’s like the Brighton & Hove massive, innit?
