You may have spotted the 'man eaten by lion' doodle in the last post, a scribble entirely influenced by two of my compulsive pre-teen reads: The Goodies File and The Goodies Book of Criminal Records (along with the regulation Python books)
Almost the missing link between The Monkees and Monty Python, I've never become bored of The Goodies at their best. And even now, my two tots drip fed on a digital diet of untold rolling, scrolling satellite channels and rapid-fire, multi-format entertainment, regularly ask for an episode of The Goodies..
So what a result then to bag a copy of their New LP for just one Earth pound in a local vinyl shop (Genie, Leigh Broadway). Untypically for TV comedy albums it's not all sketches, skits and sound effects. No, no,no - some slinky 'Superstition' style riffing can be found amongst the comedy songs - putting the fun into funky.
The Goodies Theme
The Goodies - Custard Pie
The Goodies - The Cricklewood Shakedown
PS does anyone know what The Goodies Spangles style font's called ? I'm gagging to get a copy..
