Alexei Sayle ‎– ‘Ullo John! Gotta New Motor? (12″)


From ’82 and the crazy and very sweary “Ullo John….” It was annoying at the time and still is! Some quite funny lines in it as Sayle plays the mad cockney but the swearing REALLY kicks in on Part 4, gratuitous and for mere shock value, you have been warned. The 7″ contained parts 1 and 2.

Weirdly it was produced by the legendary duo of Alan Winstanley and Clive Langer!! A mash of electronic drums and electro funk with stream of consciousness rapping over the top. It was designed as a bit of a protest song with Ford announcing they would be replacing the popular Ford Cortina with the new Ford Sierra. It was a hit after being reissued in 1984 and ironically Sayle is a Scouser!
