Additional Information: The Darkness‘ bassist Frankie Poullain once had a promising future as a tennis player, until he was barred from his tennis club for urinating into an opponent’s flask. The unwitting racketeer swigged heartily from his freshly diluted blackcurrant cordial and promptly vomited over the umpire. Such behaviour was ‘NET’ allowed, and Frankie was given the ‘ELBOW’. Were it not for this incident, Frankie could have ‘RIBENA’ contender.
