"Are you ready for a Green Paartaaay!?"   1 comment

Look out for the tall singer of short songs at the end of this vid. I’m really aggrieved because the day before the gig I went into Sally Ann’s and they had a pair of outsize Incredible Hulk green foam rubber hands which I considered buying as a stage prop for general Um use down The Portland or whatever but rejected the idea as contributing to the too much stuff problem. Then when I got home I suddenly imagined walking onstage at a benefit for The Green Party in front of 1800 people in these comedy fists, doing a power salute and enquiring whether they were “…ready for a Green Paartaaay!?” thought ‘Oh my God’ and rushed back to score them. Alas, like so many things in Sally Ann, you don’t get a second chance to think about it and the buggers had gone. They were only 80p as well.

Thanks to Andrzej Sosnowski for sending me the film.

  1. In fact I feel I should add that when I realised the Hulk fists had gone I was really incredibly saddened by it. If you had seen me stumble out onto Mill Road looking utterly bereft you would have wondered what the hell had happened. I felt like I’d missed such a massive opportunity for a perfect Pete Um moment. Hmmm.
