PANIS ET CIRCENSIS

Meanwhile, Woebot's list of essential Brasilia continues to grow. Matt's compendium quite rightly includes Os Mutantes, whose debut LP (below) is one of my all-time fave something-or-others. Trax from this one had 'em wigglin' their rings when Darryl and I went toe-to-toe in the basement of Woods, Yeovil, last year :

Apparently, some cheap German Polydor copies of this LP turned up in Newport, Wales, last year but I was too slow to get my grubby lil' mitts on them.

Moon-Knight: Occasional 'member' of the World's Mightiest Non-Team The Defenders, as rendered by Keith Giffen at the height of his Kirby Kopycat Era (and that's meant as a kompliment). As Groucho (quite rightly) said: "I'd never join a club that would have me as a member..." But if I agree with that sentiment, doesn't that then make me a member of a club. Ooh, me aching head...

Moon-Knight: Didn't he, er, suffer from Multiple-Personality Disorder? The Idiot's Guide to Dreaming: the only blog with MPD...

Moon-Knight: (Correct me if I'm wrong) the only super-hero to save himself from drowning by emptying a beer-can.

Moon-Knight: My kinda guy...
