Negativland - Perfect Scrambled Eggs

Graham Kerr was a fixture of lunchtime television when I was little. His tv persona was the Galloping Gourmet, not because he had anything to do with horses, but for the distinctive way he lifted his heels as he ran around the studio. He was amiable in a naff and ineffective way, and comfortably posh.

How pioneering copyright warriors Negativland got hold of Kerr's recipe for perfect scrambled eggs I don't know. But here it is, narrated by the man himself, while the band punctuate it with dramatic musical sound effects. Horribly inappropriate musical sound effects. You would not believe how exciting it is to add eggs to melted butter. It's clearly an adventure of the highest magnitude. Lovely nonsense, from the 1987 compilation album Potatoes: A Collection of Folk Songs.
