I thought this session from Foreheads In A Fishtank was a killer when I first taped it and promptly bought the Happy Shopper single (which reached Number 21 in the 1991 Festive Fifty). As Peel quite rightly pointed out, the singer "managed to sound like Noddy Holder & Morrissey within the same song" and the style of music was totally at odds to the burgeoning grunge movement that was taking shape.
The album "Buttocks" was a bit of a disappointment and I don't think they reached these heights again (although they did release a completely bizarre cover version of Haircut 100's "Favourite Shirts" as a single a few years later that was quite entertaining)
