the sixth beatle

Half of the Beatles may way well be six foot under, but in Japan they're five feet over (just).

In a little corner of a little bar in a little back street in little Osaka, you can see what all the fuss was about back in the 60s as the fans go mop-top crazy over the Japanese Beatles - or Bricks, as they're called. It's not such a good name, but it's probably what they were shitting the day they first took to the stage in Osaka in front of tens of fans.

So may I introduce to you,
The act you haven't known for all these years,
Sergeant Bricks Lonely Hearts Club Band!


John Lennonomoto

Paul McCartanabe

George Harrisonoda

and the drummer bloke, Ringo Staradakara



See The Bricks giving it their all in this 30 second video..........



And anyone who knows anything about The Beatles will have their own opinion about the identity of the so-called fifth Beatle. Stu Sutcliffe, Pete Best, Simon Groom....whatever.

What we do know for sure is the identity of the sixth Beatle. Because I saw him. And here he is, playing She Loves You....


The sixth, and possibly seventh, Beatles.

Running time: 30 seconds

That's cute...

And I couldn't help but notice there was a dog's areshole worked into one of this blog's now-rotating banner images.

I also couldn't help but notice I just misspelled "arsehole." We of the former colonies tend not to use the term so much.

These guys are better than anything I've ever produced.

But still not as good as The Rubber Band.

Must be from that famous province of China, No-tune-ning.

Still at least the poor kid has an excuse; the tash-tastic dude from "The Bricks" however, has none.
