Preposterous Tales by I, Ludicrous was a John Peel favourite (No 11 in one of his 1987 festive 50), and subsequently one of mine as well. This rip came of my cassette recording of a John Peel show (lucky for many John Peel was one of those rare DJ's who played records in their entirety.
This is a brilliant song, with brilliant lyrics (very clever and witty), everyone know a Ken MacKenzie, even though the lyrics may not mean something to some of the younger listeners (see the line about Crakerjack) they will still understand the rest:
I went out with a famous DJ's sister's friend,
I was on Crackerjack at the age of ten (oh really?)
And I saw the Sex Pistols play down the Hundred Club (yeah, we all did)
And I spent New Year's Eve at Sensible's Den.
The reason I posted this is twofold one it is a brilliant song that everyone should hear and secondly they have just released a new album with this and some other classics as well. So do them a favour and go out and buy a copy.
