Out On Blue Six : The Merton Parkas

It was Stewart Lee a couple of weeks ago on his unmissable series Comedy Vehicle (Saturday night's, 10pm BBC2) that reminded me of The Merton Parkas. He was discussing the Labour party in the 1980s and the media figures who were notable supporters who told their fans to vote the same way;

"Banarama...The Blow Monkeys...and, er, Mick Talbot from The Merton Parkas"


Of course Mick later become known for, and indeed gained greater success with, The Style Council, alongside Paul Weller.
