Clip of British Sea Power performing “The Licorice Fields of Pontefract”

I had no idea about Sir John Betjeman prior to chasing down this ref to British Sea Power (the band).

Clip of British Sea Power performing “The Licorice Fields of Pontefract” on John Betjeman & Me, BBC2, then discussing their feelings for professional female volleyball players.

If you are sufficiently interested by the band to check out more of their music, here is the video that got to me with the puppets.

The “Easy! Easy! Easy!” chant is that of the British wrestler Big Daddy, btw. Headpress mag did an article on him once, disparaging him in language remincient of the scorn heaped on Hulk Hogan.  See and hear it here.
