The bowtie-wearing Drunk was waiting at a bus stop in the proverbial middle of nowhere one night in October 1972 when Jacko Ford walked up, having been stranded nearby by Freddie Slack after declining a share in the theft of copper from a yard. Bottle in hand, the drunk initiated conversation by asking for a cigarette. After being told no, the drunk passed the time by talking incessantly to a bored Jacko, visiting several random and often bizarre topics, including his past as a powerful singer in the clubs, his preference of his wife's mother over his wife, and the wife leaving her teeth in a glass in bed. Unsurprisingly, his stories failed to ellicit Jacko's interest.
