I blame INXS, a soft target I know, but if Michael Hutchence and his bunch of leather and paisley wearing haircuts hadn’t decided that Wembley Stadium was a great place to do rock concerts then maybe, just maybe musicians would have kept their prancing and showboating to stages instead of football fields.
This year The Crustacean Cup matured into a four team competition, pitting local lead breakers and beat makers against each other in an irreverant riff on the world game. Cut & Paste was there to record all the highlights, the low lights and the absurd lack of motor skills that people who can play play multi-octave scales at blistering speed demonstrate when a big round thing gets near their feet.
Special mentions must go to the Foodchain crew for putting together an excellent afternoon’s entertainment, Tomas Ford for MC-ing the day and of course to the mighty Crabcelona FC for defending their title from last year.
During the Final of the 2011 Crustacean Cup, Young Filmmaker of the Year and roving documentary man Mat de Koning went deep inside the camps at half time and full time to talk strategy, skills and post match celebrations.
