  • Republic of Loose??

    Really?? I would have thought they would be barred from Africa Day considering Mick Pyro spent the whole time last year shouting and swearing at a crowd full of kids and families. Poor show.

  • Gary is sexxy

    Yeah what the hell, Mick’s drunken abusive demeanor is usually irritating, but infront of families last year was just inapropraite.


  • Sarah

    That’s what Mick Pyro does. I doubt the four-year-olds were hanging on his every word

  • Shivon

    ‘thats what he does’ isnt good enough. screaming come on you c**nts at children is arite is it? that and he was hammered and his vocals were shit. he was a sham. which is a pity because a few years ago republic of loose were brilliant live.

  • I thought Jape was meant to be playing this?
