It strikes me that you're the opposite of an indie snob's favourite band: instead of it being cool to say "I prefer the early stuff", it's "I prefer the later stuff". Do you ever meet people who hate your Nineties work, and only like what you're doing now?


STEWART LEE: Yeah, yeah I do. Also, people who had never heard of it, which is interesting. Well, with that stuff, right, I mean... I was always doing stand-up on the circuit, and I think in my head, that was my thing, and the double-act stuff was this other thing. Which weirdly became much much better-known. I must have done five gigs a week, club gigs, through the Nineties. And we probably did about 30 a year, for four years, as the double-act. There was one tour where the improvisations got really good, towards the end. And of course it was never documented, because things weren't, in those days, were they? I really liked the first series of Fist Of Fun, and it's what we wanted to do at the time. It had a sort of bricolage, plastered-together sort of feel, which was what my sensibility was at the time. It's not unlike Mr Show, that thing in America at the time with Bob Odenkirk who ended up in Breaking Bad, and David Cross. But then the second series was conditional upon it being more Light Entertainment. With a shiny floor. They even did something to a band's music without permission. There was a band called Globo, who used to be Basti, who did the music. And without their permission, the producer got it and put all tones under it and cleaned it up. And I remember saying, 'You have to tell them!', and the producer said, 'Well, we own it.' And I said, 'You can't really do that to someone's music.' So, things like that happened, and the second series was made in a real rush. The second series, for me, was like a drift into Light Entertainment packaging. And I sort of sleepwalked into the rest of it. There's lots of bits, in things that we did, that I like. But it wasn't my plan, in the Eighties, to be in Light Entertainment-y sketch shows.
