One of Bill’s favourite modern day pop acts are Sugababes. In fact PUSH THE BUTTON made his Top 59 and is a recurring theme in 2023.

They also, for a three piece, have a large list of ex-members.

Siobhán, Mutya, Keisha, Heidi, Amelle and Jade.

The current line-up contains no original members.

The original members have their own group.

I suggest that Badger Kull were/are the first stage of Bill and Jimmy’s plan to hand over the Reigns Of Mu to a new generation.

Welcome To The Dark Ages and Burn The Dark Ages Part 1 were a training course on how they do what they do.

As Yoko/Kate pasted her first poster on the bus shelter, someone remarked that this was ‘the weirdest Generation Game task ever.’

Illusions to Willy Wonka and Golden Tikkets further suggest there is some weight to this idea.

This idea of handing over a creative mantel is not new. Back in the late 90s, Neil Tennant suggested that Ant and Dec should take over fronting Pet Shop Boys and they even recorded an as yet unreleased song together, Fat Northern Bastards, as a dry run.

The allocation of jobs is all part of the master plan. Tony trains The DPM, Gimpo trains the…..Gimpos.

The 400.

The 99.

Where is this leading?

Will you make the cut?

Who’s next for a Golden Tikket?


Great spot by Ben Graham.


In South Australia I was born!

Heave away! Haul away!

South Australia round Cape Horn!

We’re bound for South Australia!

Heave away, you rolling king,

Heave away! Haul away!

All the way you’ll hear me sing

We’re bound for South Australia!

As I walked out one morning fair,

It’s there I met Miss Nancy Blair.

I shook her up, I shook her down,

I shook her round and round the town.

There ain’t but one thing grieves my mind,

It’s to leave Miss Nancy Blair behind.

And as you wallop round Cape Horn,

You’ll wish to Christ you’d never been born!

Up the coast to Vallipo,

Northward on to Callao.

It’s back again to Liverpool,

I spent me pay like a bloody fool!

I’m Liverpool born and Liverpool bred,

Long in the arm and thick in the head.

Oh, rock and roll me over boys,

Let’s get this damn job over boys.

Recorded by MacColl & LLoyd, Killen, Clancys and many others
