"I'm never going to get the chance to head butt that c*nt again - so I seized the moment." With these immortal words, Astro Labe aka DJ Funknuckl recalled spontaneously headbutting someone infamous. The joy engendered by this long-overdue act reverberated around Australia and has now become legendary. This short piece seeks to capture some of the energy, larrikin humour and courage of Astro Labe, who accomplished what so many had only dreamed of doing.
