That’ll be good, the Amateur Transplants were excellent back in the day.

Speaking of which, has Adam Kay started paying Suman a fair share of royalties yet?


As Adam's a friend of mine I can't really comment, sorry fella. :-)

But this is my third time seeing the show since it's first Edinburgh run. It's still a corker.

I guess when you’ve got two professionals with an creative amateur side-job and one of them wants to quit the first job and do the second full-time (which he’s done very successfully), it’s inevitable that there’ll be problems when it comes to handling the stuff they did together. Last I heard it was being handled by solicitors, but hopefully they came to an amicable agreement. I guess on a much smaller scale it’s no different to John Deacon picking up royalties whenever Q+AL perform I Want To Break Free. And to be fair, Suman performed an Amateur Transplants song at SMACC, so it goes both ways.

I was never really into Amateur Transplants tbh. I met Adam via his work on Mongrels, and a few years later, his underrated sitcom Crims. I've gone back and listened to some of it since, but it's more than a little bit lo-fi, innit? But the This is Going to Hurt show, and the subsequent book, are really something special.
