A Crafty Cigarette

Crafty Cigarette

I can’t say for certain when I developed my love of Ska music. There was no defining moment when I heard “Willow Tree” by Alton Ellis and my world was turned on its head.

More partial to a day on the piss, dope didn’t appeal to my dad.
It's been twenty-six Years since Academy Award Winning Film Silence of the Lambs popularised and universalised the concept of criminal profiling also known as Offender profiling.
