I can never remember exactly which rock acts Bill Bailey was taking the piss out of in his story about the gig at Milton Keynes, but for me it is forever Satan's Layby (guitar riff). For some reason when I try to remember it, Alice Cooper comes to mind more readily than Marilyn Manson...

Speaking of 70s concept albums, War of the Worlds has been a persistent earworm lately, and just the other day I was introducing Nico to the delights of the Rocky Horror Show and Meat Loaf.

Re Milton Keynes, IMDB says

Bill Bailey: I went to see Metallica - yeah, 'tallica! - and I went to see them at Milton Keynes Bowl. They were being supported by Marilyn Manson - I love Marilyn, Brian? I love Brian, he's great. But anyway what he used to do to get the crowd going was just chant the name of the place over and over. So we were treated to this magnificent spectacle of this eight-foot freak, eyes different colours, wearing a rubber corset, down on one knee shouting "MILTON KEEEEYNES". Stay with me to the grave, that will.

Bill Bailey: [plays guitar] Milton Keynes! Satan's layby!
