You Are So Busted!

Ian Gittins, Guardian, The, May 2003

THE WORDS ARE TALL, luridly colourful and carefully stitched onto a bed sheet, and the sentiment is unambiguous. As Busted guitarist Matt Jay’s eyes alight on the banner being waved by the giggling, pony-tailed 14-year-old girl at the front of the crowd at Wolverhampton’s Civic Hall, he pauses mid-song and performs a cartoon double take. LET ME BLOW YOU, MATTY! the flowery, embroidered slogan declares.
