NOTES:
Album by Marc Riley and Mark Radcliffe performing parodies of various artists.

The Frank Spencer Blues Explosion is a comically exagerrated version of the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion with distorted vocals, drum intro from Bellbottoms, something that sounds like a theremin and a good deal of chaos.

The FSBX track can be heard on youtube.com.

SLEEVE NOTES:
“At this point we should thank… all of the respective Artists, Managements and Pluggers for their much need help in getting this project up and running, and without whose permission none of this rubbish would be available to you the general public…but we’re not going to because we really did all this on our own – with no help from no-one……. so bollocks to everyone…… except me and him.

We do however (begrudginingly) accept the fact that Uncle Tony Worthington, Nick Bell, Chris Lee, Parl Cargill and a few other BBC dullards in brown cardigans DID help us (a bit) in recording these calssic songs, therefore, respect is due (though payment is not). Oh, and John Leonard was alright…..perhaps Lis? Michelle? Pat? – I dunno! But that’s it….no-one else….oh except Jeanne Straight from East West (head of parcel despatch and close personal friend of Jimmy Nail – respect is due MC Nail-O) and Ian Rampage. But absolutely NO-ONE ELSE…except maybe our accountant Charles Levine and our Lawyer Neil Myerson, to whom respect is NOT due – but payment unfortuately is. But that’s the lot, apart from Bella, Trace, Kate, Beth and Holly. Oh…..and God…but THAT’s IT now….NO MORE…..enough’s enough! Oh, and what about thingmy….Roger Bannister! Radio 1’s Mr. Fixit….. Oh…..and musn’t forget Pete Frame. Oh….amd whatsit, A1 Music M/C. Oh – and thanks to each other for being great – respect is long overdue.”
