Explicit Lyrics Warning - Real X Factor

This video contains a single performance from Jinx Lennon, a Dundalk man prepared to sing and say what others, who too claim to be punk poets, will only think. Certainly in this performance he uses a word not heard very often in mainstream media.

I spent many many hours sitting beside Jinx at the same secondary school desk. He was always interested in both music and social justice / commentary even back then - approaching thirty years ago. I wish him every success he wishes for himself, I say that because, while Jinx has enjoyed national radio play with some of his songs, has even had documentaries made about him, I don't believe the flame of fame attracts Jinx - for him it's about his music and what he wants to say with it. In his own X (factor) you, way.
