Cheggers gives us a frite

It's not quite Tuber-lar Bells, but Liverpool's very own son pens a second work of potato-related musical genius

Published on February 18th 2010.


Cheggers gives us a frite

IT'S NATIONAL CHIP WEEK, and whether it's the fat, thick soggy spud in dripping, a curly twizzler or the stick-thin French fry you enjoy most, there's no denying it, we all love 'em.

But not as much as madcap Keith Chegwin. Liverpool may have spawned every musical giant we may care to mention, but a bid to be a UNESCO City of Music can only be strengthened by these two musical numbers composed our own homegrown king of the Liverpool soil.

His homage to the spud cannot be battered or bettered than in this video of an ode he wrote himself last year. Remind yourself of the joys of the King Edwards in the video above.

When you have quite got over that, you will be pleased to know that Cheggers has not, and emboldened by his love for the tuber has penned another! Yes, this ditty for 2010's National Chip Week Campaign.

Tuck in and and enjoy this inspired by the Welsh hip swiveller Tom Jones himself. It's Not Unusual? Oh yes it is.

And when Keith's proud sister, Janice Long, appears at a Q and A in Liverpool next month, there is only one possible question we could want to ask her, wey-hey!

Phil, as chips contain neither meat nor dairy products even strict Catholics can wolf them down. What're you on about?

Phil HarmonicFebruary 18th 2010.

Well it made me laugh and it made me want chips. But it's lent you ba****ds, I hope you are proud of your contribution

Fanny BatterFebruary 18th 2010.

Sorry, R Spisskits. Even worse.

Ann RobinsonFebruary 18th 2010.

Ah, were'syersenseofhumour?

You can be sure UNESCO will be watching now you've helpfully mentioned them twice in this piece. well done, you should be proud of your contribution!

Fanny BatterFebruary 18th 2010.

The name "R Pisskits" is vulgar and shows this person to be a philistine. I hope the unesco people don't think all folks in Liverpool go around calling themselves crude and unfunny names like that on internet messageboards.

UNESCO once employed Gerry Halliwell the spice thing, they aren't exactly fussy.

I have listened to this 1,736 times now, which was proven by Professor Fluff Freeman in his 1967 thesis Performance and Song to be the required number of listenings by which a valid empircal judgement on popular culture can be given. I am ready to provide my full scientific analysis of the performance.......His heart really wasn't in it.
