    Think the Marilyn Monroe stuff was their best/worst!
    And the Wiggins school boy sketch, plus the House on Fire song. Epic.
    I first encountered Derek and Clive many years ago at High School (doesn’t everyone?). A mate of mine had been given a tape by his older brother. I forget which album it was but it was the one with the ‘Horse Race’ sketch.

    The tape was old and battered and had ‘Prefab Sprout’ scrawled on it. I was fairly sure it wasn’t really Prefab Sprout – I’d heard ‘The King of Rock ‘n’ Roll’ and this didn’t sound anything like that. My mate insisted it was so I spent about two years suspicious that there was a very Dark Side of Paddy McAloon*…

    *Which sounds like a Pink Floyd album.
  • Cancer song anyone? Horrendously non-PC these days!
    Derek & Clive, prooving that swearing is big and is clever!
    And with Daleks!

    Remember that you are an Englishman and thus have won first prize in the lottery of life.
