“Because that’s where it’s at on stage. Like these little gigs we did in London, especially in London were wonderful. And that’s what I live for. 

The For Crying Out Loud singer added: “If you take that away from me you may as well cut off my nuts ‘cause that is my life.”

Meanwhile, Serge took part in a very special album playback with John Kennedy, where he revealed that Bless This Acid House was a "punk nod" to the 90s.

Speaking to the X-Posure DJ, the Eez-Eh rocker revealed: “I was at Mike Pickering’s house and he had this poster that said ‘Bless This Acid House’ and I wrote it down on my phone. In the 70s, you’d hear a lot of tunes referencing rock ’n’ roll from the 50s, so I though that was interesting, me referencing acid house, which is now 20-odd years old.

“But rather than do a synth track, I thought a punk song referencing acid house would be quite cool. A nice little nod. It’s massive at shows already.”
