is it Weird seeing your oWn name up there as a brand for a festival?
“As with everything I’ve done in the past, it always starts off as a joke between mates. We knew this was going to be a gig centred around me and my record, so the booking agents would always refer to it as ‘Jimbo-fest’ or ‘Jamie gig’ or whatever. But Lenmania is a pretty cool name, and by the time you’re a solo artist it’s always your name on the poster and your face on the t-shirts, so I think you have to confront that head on and not take yourself too seriously. With the poster it’s the back of my baldy old head, so that shows my sense of humour, and it’s meant to show my personality and be a celebration of the record.”
