John squats in a run-down flat in Duddingston village with no hot water or electricity. He got into Islam through free curries at the mosque, and busks in the Sufi, freestyle Urdu and Scottish traditions, in a circuit around Edinburgh and the Kingdom of Scotland. He has toured as far north as Shetland and as far south as Cape Town. His family pays £100 into his account each week and the rest he makes up with busking. He did try to teach a guy but the guy wouldn’t believe in Allah and his angels so he had to stop. He wants to spend his last years in a studio, recording everything he can, fuelled by ganja, cigarettes, and a big bottle of Jack Daniels.
