Weird comedy act, from 1982 Wavis was a regular on Channel 4’s The Tube as The Hard, an oaf obsessed with being tough who’s catchphrase was ‘I felt nowt’.
The Tube initially had some interesting comedy as well as poetry from Mark Miwurdz.
Track 1-5 were recorded in a studio, tracks 7-9 in Fatty Round’s kitchen on cassette recorder.
Track 2 clearly shows that Wavis invented Rap Music back in ’79!
Track 3 is about the demise of British comedian Sid James.
Track 6 is a genuine phone call ingeniously set up and recorded from Newcastle’s ‘Metro Radio’ late night James Whale Show.
Track 8 is about disgraced British Liberal politician Jeremy Thorpe.
