Crazy What You Could've Had
Oh, Manchester (Oh, Manchester) Is Full Of Cows (Is Full...What The???)
That's right folks. Went record shopping in Manchester
today. Any Future Kings Of Spain fans in? No, well their
album's less than a fiver, and they're alright FKOS.
Anyway. First thing I noticed other than the rigorous
ticket checking 5 times in Piccadilly station, 4 on the
way out, was a cow in the outside, dressed up to be
Dangermouse. Odd, I thought.
It was even odder when we got into the Arndale Centre and
periodically other cows were featured, each more ludicrous
than the last. Indeed on one was a joke (amongst other
things "How did the farmer find his lost cow? He tractor
down") and another was pink with handprints. It was all a
bit nonsensical and surreal. But it turns out there is a
purpose to all this bovine tomfoolery. There will be an
auction in October, when all the cows will be sold and
money given to charity, though not the mental charities
the cows so easily invoke.
If you want to know more go to Manchester and see them.
Its all a bit mad. Especially Daisy Beckham.
