I have some background story to that: Antonioni wanted The Who for that scene in Blow Up but he couldn't get them for contractural reasons. At that time my older brother's band played support to The Who so their manager, who was well connected, persuaded Antonioni to audition them for the part. The audition took place in a room above a large pub on Brixton Hill, South London near the prison. Antonioni turned up with a small entourage looking very much like mafiosa. The band performed a couple of songs which were not what he wanted. He thought they would perform just like the who including instrument smashing, which of course they didn't want to do.
I've been asked that a few times and it would be cool to say yes but the truth is that Lucky Jim was the title of an old British black and white film and my schoolmates just started calling me that. I guess I have been fairly lucky in life.
