Many years ago I caught a documentary, about 30 minutes long, about Mike Spenser. To say it was a shock is an understatement as the Cannibals were never big in the UK and MS was, to most, an unknown.…Continue

There you go JB, within five minutes you have all the accents mentioned, its the only UK programme that I could think of that has that many different accents in it.
Mark George , I think I failed to answer your inquiry about the Macc Ladds....I HAVE , AT TIMES , STRUGGLED TO UNDERSTAND THEM ...But , not so much , anymore. If you read as many Viz comics as I do , and own a Slade interview disc , you get a pretty good understanding of Geordie.THAT DOES'NT MEAN i WOULD'NT BE FUCKING CLUELESS IF MET WITH A REAL GEORDIE. i was at the GREEN BAY Rockabilly Fest , and I met all these Scottish people , I MEAN , NORTH OF SCOTLAND !!! They'd say kjfejkwhkdfkejkejkrkerkjk
And I was supposed to respond ! HA HA. These old Rockers from England , I'd tell 'em I LIKED THE ORIGINAL BRITISH ROCK 'N' ROLLERS , and one says , "Yeh? D'ya like Cliff Richard?". I'm half thinking it's a trick question , but, I go , "Sure , I like Cliff Richard" , and he says "Yehhh? So do we !".....It's so easy for people to take shots at him. It'd be like knocking Rick Nelson , just because he was'nt Elvis Presley , either! God ! Who cares ? But , I guess I'm getting an education , between Sid The Sexist and The Macc Ladds , like , the proper WORD for bathroom or toilet is "Bog", and "AIDS" is pronounced "YEEDS". dON cRAINE TOLD ME , jOE mEEK Did'nt record inthe kitchen , as is widely believed , but , rather IN THE BOG !!!! "WHY'D YE HEV TEH GAN TELL ME FRIENDS AH DIED ON THE BOG ?!!!!" Steptoe and Son.
You're right , but , you know , if I don't have any children , I'm OK with that. I'VE WORKED WITH KIDS , OFF AND ON. Sometimes they need to know you're one of theirs , and don't represent authority , except , if you have to tell them , on someone else's behalf , that they can't be acting out... I found out about The Macc Ladds in Viz comics , then when I actually heard them, I bust a gut ! I think people take stuff like that too seriously...Are you English , yourself ? Needless to say , most of my (Our?) Countrymen don't know the Macc Ladds , or understand their appeal. I think they were actually banned from performing inThe U.S. Geez , it's not like they're Skrewdriver or something ! John.
I don't know what I've loved hearing more:
"John , I want to be just like you when I grow up".
or "What do YOU want to be when you grow up , John?".
