Tuesday, 30 November 2010 Together with Keith Allen, Alex James and Joe Strummer, Damien Hirst was one quarter of the pop group Fat Les. Put together to record the ‘official’ World Cup song ‘Vindaloo’.
It got to number two in the UK charts but it’s fair to say but this is probably not the achievement for which any of them will be best remembered.
For my session, they all dressed in ‘Village People’ type outfits and this is why Damien Hirst is seen here as a Native American Indian. For some reason, a few frames later, he insisted in getting his ‘old fella’ out and having me photograph that too.
He’s quite a rich guy, I believe? Maybe I should blackmail him with it?
