A spoof on novelty holiday records that became a Number 1, taking the piss out of Black Lace et al. Released in 1986 the 12 Hour Version is simply the 7″ repeated twice!! The video is the funniest bit but has been blocked by Channel 4 so the one above is the video played backwards!
The pick of the tracks is a Phil Collins spoof “Hello, You Must Be Going” proving he wasn’t much liked even back then! The classic “(I’ve Never Met) A Nice South African” is a two finger salute to Apartheid and “We’re Scared Of Bob” is a parody charity record about being scared when Bob Geldof phones you up to appear on a…..charity record.
And here are the videos….
