[quote=Limehouse;23719]Oh please Graham, you're a lovely bloke, don't turn into one of those PC-bashing rabids. There are too many of them on the Obama thread over in Pub Talk! [/QUOTE

OK, I promise - but there's rabids on both sides, Limehouse. What I meant to imply was that in 2008 the Bonzos would be run in if they performed their 1968 act.

Cheers,

Graham

Oh dear, am I a rabid??

I don't remember the Bonzos doing anything too offensive but I suppose the world has moved on quite a lot. I mean, I remember thinking that Carry On films were hilarious and yet today you can only laugh with embarrassment!

I knew Dave Sutch a little and it was such a shame when he died. I first met him at a public event and he was, frankly, a total arse. Awful. However, I met him again two years later at a film showing and we both arrived early and went for a coffee. The real man was lovely. He was quiet, friendly, chatty and clearly lacking in confidence. I really took to him and retrospectively it's not all that surprising to understand why he took his own life after his mum died.

I've got a photo of me and him with Honey Lantree of The Honeycombs from 1991. I used to be a huge Joe Meek fan once upon a time (their producer, the English Phil Spector to those who don't know the name).

Hi Philip

The photo of you with Dave Sutch and Honey Lantree of The Honeycombs sounds great. Would you be able to put it here in this thread? I hope so.

Chris

Neil Innes appeared in Eric Idle's "Rutland Weekend Television" which no one seems to remember but which was quite funny.

Hello Robert

I remember Rutland Weekend Television, it was a very funny Monty Python-esque spin-off. Most people just wont remember Rutland, that smallest of counties that only existed for a few years, and now has quite of bit of itself submerged under Rutland Water!

Hi Limehouse

I don't find the Carry On films the least bit embarrassing - I have the entire collection on DVD - I love watching them and find them very funny. Earlier today there was an 'On The Buses' film on tv which the Radio Times reviewer described as truly awful. I watched it and enjoyed it.

In fact I enjoy these films so much that I make sure the door is closed when I watch them, so that I cannot be disturbed, the window too. I keep the volume down low because I know that not everyone shares my love of these films .....

.... sorry for the abrupt end to the last post, there was someone knocking at my closed door. I have to go now, there is a man in a white coat wanting to show me something along the corridor.

The Confessions Of films are also really, really good ... I just wish those men in the white coats didn't plug my chair into the mains when I start to watch one ...

... Confessions of a Pop Performer is one of my favourites, it has Jill Gasgoigne with no clothes ... hang on a minute, who's that woman in a white coat? Oh, my wife - now I'm in trouble!

Hi Steve

On one show involving Neil Innes, I remember he introduced a clip of Jake Thackray singing "On again" or something like that. It was the first time I heard it. It's hilarious, but decidedly un-PC!
