Album, The

RUN-OF-THE-MILL HOBBY/COLLECTING magazine (see MADABOUT) employing ex-mime artist ADRIAN “JIGSAW” HEDLEY to perform “wacky” sketches and irrelevant middle-section THE KID, an acidically-coloured-in-the-eighties-manner live-action comic strip taking off Chaplin with lashings of Chromakey. Irritating shouty theme tune and puzzling caged-bird animation. Only slightly redeemed by the involvement of CLIVE DOIG.

    Apart from the “Wop-wop ow!”, the theme tune to this sounds remarkably similar to “Roll With It” by Oasis. Was Noel a fan?

    There was a that song played most episodes where that bloke started shouting about collecting fluff from his mum’s a tumble dryer.

    One of The Kid characters looked like Ian Rush with pink highlights.
