The Astronauts - Constitution

Image Hosted by

Great bit of folky punk for you from The Astronauts on 'Acid Stings' records 1991. Released the classic 'All Done By Mirrors' LP on The Mob's 'All The Madmen' records in 1983, which was just posted at Kill Your Pet Puppy .
That LP reminds me of evenings spent at my mate Maggsy's house. Maggsy had a chicken that lived in the house called Oswald. Some klepto type he knew had half inched the said creature, and in some twisted ALF animal lib type way, Maggs ended up with the bird living in the house. Now, as you can probably guess, this wasn't the greatest arrangement for human or bird.The fucking thing was mental. It would peck the shit out of you. Very territorial our chicken friends. They hurt man!
You would lend an album to Maggsy and it would come back covered in chicken shit. You would have to sponge the covers down. My copy of 'Curse of Zounds' still pays testament to this.
I'm rambling sorry....

Cheers for comment anonymous schizo. They do really hurt dont they! You would have to sit on your legs cos it would just peck your shins!
If you ever read 'Day The Country Died' by Ian Glasper, there's another little Maggsy anecdote from someone I know on the Classified Protest page.
