It never rains but it pours, merchandise from the WBF audio archive

See, we told you we were back motherfuckers. We have decided that really, after years of recording to Edison cylinder (see Shows 1-200) and then updating for the post digital age and putting out all our shows on 8 track cassette, it was time to discover ‘the internet’. Now to be fair, none of us really understand the ‘internets’ and ‘the world wide web’. We are, at heart, technophobes and luddites. (although funny story, luddites weren’t actually anti-technology, they were pro-work – Perhaps we might be better described as Neo-Luddites, who according to Wikipedia represent the cause of ‘Neo-Luddism (which) has emerged to describe opposition to many forms of technology, According to a manifesto drawn up by the Second Luddite Congress (April 1996; Barnesville, Ohio), Neo-Luddism is “a leaderless movement of passive resistance to consumerism and the increasingly bizarre and frightening technologies of the Computer Age.’ Oh wait…)

Sorry, what was I saying…
Yes. Luddites.

We have put some of our archive material on Soundcloud, free to use and download, all creative commons, all the time. We shall be uploading more and more over the next few weeks. Is it any good? We will be judge of that. Will it win us the Grammy we have craved for decades? Maybe. And then, maybe, just maybe, Kanye will interrupt Beyonce to say it is a travesty that we were robbed of glory.

Here are the first three for your sonic arousal. Fifty shades my arse.

Right-ho kids, you can now make your own A Walk in the Black Forest! Go back to Show 1 and start again!! Be Richard!! Be Pete!! Be Abe!!!! or even, be Alex! Hours and hours of fun can be had by all.

This is an early sketch written by Pete and with characters played by Richard and Alex. It might be funny, maybe.

This was a later period sketch written by Pete, from an idea based on Abe’s verbal meme and clearly demonstrates the breadth and depth of our acting skills (oh, and Richards inability to do a Latino accent at the time, ask him now, you would think he was Marc Anthony. Oh, and Home Yardage is a fabric chain in Australia. It might also be a little racialist. Sorry
