Friday Funnies: Alexei Sayle, Ullo John Gotta A New Motor-1982

Just for something completely different this week, I thought I'd share the clip to Alexi Sayle's Ullo John Gotta New Motor. A rap of sentences, mostly in British slang, along with some spoken monologues, this one reached number 14 on the British charts in 1984, two years after its initial release. The song's eventual success was due in part to Sayle's brilliant comic role in the Young Ones as various members of the Balowski family. (And the occasional British thug.)

The song has enjoyed some longevity and enjoyed the occasional replay on ABC1's music video programme, Rage
