Lord Upminster did have a bit of bother after this was released...today he'd have snowflakes screaming for his head...... when I look at the motley crew of failed circus clowns on the mtro and in the street daily, I can't help imagining them singing the refrain ?I'm spasticus... I'm spasticus... not for quite the same reasons as Mr Dury meant...

The audience look bored stiff.
Apparently Gilmour did a gig with audience there a couple of years ago. I think it might have been the mayor of Naples told him, I've seen you here before. He'd been a young kid skulking in the background in 1971.

I also remember when music videos caught on, PFLIP was steadfastly no 1 best-selling video throughout the 90s.

Edit. Apparently I was a year out. Not 72. ©1971.

Just discovered The Black Keys. Outstanding music.
 
The wonderful Viv Stanshall!

As an aside the you tube poster must have been a Captain Beefheart fan as his avatar at top left is the cover of Trout Mask replica
One evening in 1971-2, I was having a quietish drink in the Smack, Leigh-on-Sea, with my friend and the 2 brothers we used to pit-crew for in Clubman's Formula. At the other side of the bar another group of blokes were having a riotous piss-up. One guy in particular was centre of attention and had the others in fits.
"Who's that?" said I
"Oh, that's Splinge, he's a noisy bugger, always has been" said the elder brother, who had been at school with him.
"Who?"
"Viv Stanshall, Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band, Urban Spaceman."
My music span then was Who, Hendrix and recently Tull, so a 'comedy record' didn't really do it for me. It was only later that I appreciated his stuff.

Try this. Not sure if it should be posted here or in the " music to cut your wrists to" thread
