With his domestic philosopher John Shuttleworth back in Sheffield, fretting over whether to plump for cake or a biscuit with a cup of tea, Graham Fellows revives another of his sublime creations.
Brian Appleton is a deluded "rock musicologist", whose history of pop is studded with bitter tales of how he's had a hand (uncredited, the bastards) in the creation of myriad hits and movements.
In History of the World in 3 Darts he casts his net wider – but there'll still be time for such "hits" as "My Turn to Be Poorly": the song that "inspired Morrissey to form the Smiths".
