I've Got A Loverly Bunch Of Coconuts
August Darnell! Hipster turned popstar! A single I haven't played in 25 years!
Steady me matron, I'm getting a Proustian rush....'Stool Pigeon' at the Radio One roadshow at Torre Abbey Meadows Torquay with your host DJ Mike Read, get there early and get to the front, it's the happy, happy sound, souvenir mug and back to Tall Phil's to hear 'Sandinista'.
This is slower than I remember. Is there another version they play on the radio? I tried cranking it up, but then it goes all Alvin & The Chipmunks.
No hang on, that lilting bass is a bit sexy....Damn it, it sounds good.
'Ona, ona, onomatopoeia, ona, ona, onomatopoeia...'
