Me and old Blakey and the Sarge

I’ve posted it before, but the death of actor Stephen Lewis, best known for his portrayal of the character Blakey in the 1969 British sitcom On the Buses, reminded me of this handwritten CHARLIEUNCLENORFOLKTANGO tribute—in the style of On the Buses—by Billy Childish, which was written and performed by Billy at a launch event put on by publisher Codex Books at the Sussex Arts Club in Brighton in 1999.

Billy’s impromptu parody was prompted by the fact that one of the three coppers in my 1999 novel is also called Blakey.
