Happy 50th Birthday, Phil Daniels!

Daniels and his partner on Strictly Come Dancing

You have a week left to send your best wishes to Mr. Phil Daniels. You might not remember him, but he played Jimmy in the Who's movie "Quadrophenia", gave his signature Cockney slang to Blur's hit "Parklife" and was just recently kicked from a British celebrities dancing TV show. But that's not why Daniels is high on our list of icons of British culture. In 1980 (can you believe that's almost 30 years ago?) Phil Daniels + the Cross released an Album called "To King Cross Main Line & Suburban" which is pure gold. If you can get your hands on a copy, we guarantee your satisfaction.

Thanx for reminding us of our favorite Cockney Pop Poet. Him dancing? What a Cromer Aroma! Anyway, Mike Skinner and Jamie T should team up with Phil D!
