We interrupt these flarf proceedings for more news of John Betjeman, this time regarding a vogue among British djs for Banana Blush and his other spoken word albums.

"John would usually do a poem in one take," recalls Parker. "He claimed to be completely unmusical, but he wasn't really. He liked Victorian hymns and music-hall. I never heard him mention contemporary pop music, but we had in some really good rock-guitar session men and he was very happy with that. He would just sit there and look around. He seemed to think everyone was doing a good job and seemed very happy with proceedings."
