    Animal Nightlife, they had minor hits with "Mr Solitaire" & "Love is the Great Pretender", keep bumping into their former lead singer in the bushes in Epping Forest (snigger!!) and Blue Rondo a La Turke who had minor hits with "Me & Mr Sanchez" and "Klactoveesedstein", both bands were part of the latin club revival which was so in yer face back in the early 80's, gawd knows where it came from!!? Was just a tad too pretentious for its own good.

    Anne Nightingale played some obscurities. I remember hearing "Lamb Kebab" by Andy Pandemonium, "Fish Heads" by Barnes & Barnes, something by Fischer Z, "Rossmore Road" and "Win a Night Out With a Well Known Paranoiac" by Barry Andrews (formerly of XTC).

    Ah yes, Fish Heads! One of Barnes & Barnes was Billy Mumy, "Will Robinson" in Lost In Space!

    Chesney Haaks - (I Am) The One and Only

    This was an amazing hit for the Ches-ter in 1991 I recall, which belonged to a time when Artists/Singers had a one-off that was'nt strictly "one-offs" I have always felt!

    My Dad has that on a Dr Demento CD of novelty songs. He is a DJ who likes to find & play strange songs, often one hit wonders.
