One morning back in 1988, Trix Worrell sat on the top-deck of the number 36 bus going from Peckham to Central London. The young St Lucia-born writer was a worried man. He had just won Channel 4’s debut writing competition and had been invited to meet distinguished TV producer Humphrey Barclay and talk about making a new black sitcom. He had no idea what he was going to pitch to the producer and had never even written comedy before. As the bus stopped at the traffic lights on the Queens Road, he noticed a West Indian Barber shop.

There is nothing we love more here at Jammy Toast than listening to some of our favourite tunes. From time to time we will post a music video from an artist or genre that we think will be enjoyable to you; our friends. We often feature music that you may not have come across before, or music that maybe you just missed the first time around. Try and listen with an open mind, you never know, you may find something you can add to your iPod. If you have any music videos you would like us to feature then drop us a line – we are always happy to listen to requests but we cannot promise to feature everyone’s favourite

Here at Jammy Toast one of our favourite all-time films must be The Blues Brothers. The story of ‘Joliet’ Jake and Elwood Blues; The Blues brothers. The film is the story of the pair putting their R&B band back together after Jake comes out of prison. They are on a “mission from God” to raise money to save from foreclosure the Catholic orphanage in which they were raised by Cab Calloway and a bunch of nuns. They organize a performance to earn the $5,000 needed to pay the orphanage’s property tax bill. Along the way, they are targeted by a homicidal ‘mystery woman’, Neo-Nazis, and a country and western band – all while being relentlessly pursued by the police.

Today we are going to ask everyone who visits Jammy Toast to just “Talk Shit”. It has become a bit of a Jammy Toast tradition whereby we ask everyone who visits us to leave a comment on just about any subject they choose. Funny or sad, true or false, real or fake; we don’t give a shit, as long as it is entertaining and doesn’t really hurt anyone’s feelings. We usually ask you to do this because we are too lazy to think of anything else to post. However, people generally enjoy the freedom to whine and bitch. The rules are simple to explain – anything goes!
