A very very good song by a very very good artist.
But what’s the link?
Coast Coast was a 1987 tv film starring Lenny Henry as a mobile DJ specialising in Motown and soul music.
Lenny Henry also starred in tv adverts for Premier Inn.
Premier Inn famously use the colour purple in their budget hotels.
The Color Purple , published in 1982 was written by Alice Walker.
Murray Walker had a successful career commentating and is widely considered to be one of the best of all time. It is little known however that he also created the slogan for opal fruits: “Made to Make Your Mouth Water” and also the lesser known slogan for Trill budgie food: “Trill makes budgies bounce with health” .
A budgie is , of course, a much loved bird. As is the evocative robin of the red breast.
AHHHH… Fool that I am.
Fucks knows I was pissed.
Linking to Trapeze…
Great to see Austin Powers in the audience.
Haven’t even listened to this one yet, but it gets an upvote on name of band and song alone.
Edit: having listened to it, I’d give it two upvotes if I could.
