I've been a fan of Duke Special and his previous incarnations (Booley, Benzine Headset) for some time. He once played at a school Christian Union meeting to a handful of pupils and bemused teachers.
I last saw him back in May with Dave, just after his was signed to V2 records. We thought then that he was on the cusp of being famous.
On Friday he appeared on Later With Jools Holland, a long running British tv show alongside The Racounteurs, Muse, John Legend and other musical heavyweights. Thanks to the BBC, you can watch him and the rest of the show HERE.
Hurry, I think you can only watch the recent episode. Still, it's great to see the local lad doing so well.
