Last time Cook was in Melbourne he followed up a performance on the sands of St Kilda Foreshore with a club set at Revolver Upstairs. Spontaneity courses through Cook’s veins like a road train on a highway – replace ‘Quentin’ with ‘surprise’ and you get his middle name.

Videos went viral of that one Tuesday night down Chapel Street but such impulse is like drinking coffee white to guileful master Slim and it’s randomness that keeps him engrossed after all these years in the game.

“It’s how to keep me interested and excited and invigorated by it. If you just went on an arena tour, you’d be burnt out within two weeks. When I play the big shows, I have to work really hard because you have to keep the audience and take them to bigger, bigger places and it’s quite hard work,” Cook says.

“But when I play in a little dirty club, I can have fun. So selfishly, I have more fun playing in the small venues because I can just do more, I can take more risks and go on a journey with the crowd. Then through that comes inspiration because I would try things out in a nightclub that I would never try out in front of 20,000 people for fear of falling flat on my face.”

Fatboy Slim on his love of Australia and playing in “dirty” clubs
