About Vintage Stuff

The aim of Vintage Stuff is to display some of the ephemera that I have collected, often inadvertently, over the years. I am now deliberately seeking out interesting old adverts, screen shots, leaflets, obscure record covers, picture postcards and illustrations; anything that catches my eye, in fact. They will be mainly, but not exclusively of UK origin (so many vintage blogs appear to be American) and almost always a scan from something that I actually have in my collection, rather than off the net. If you do re-blog, please acknowledge the source. Further stuff, mainly photographs, can be found on my Flickr pages, via the Benny Hill record cover.

Stutter Rap

Or Stutter Rap (No Sleep til Bedtime) to give it it's full title, this being a 1988 parody on Gangster Rap (No Sleep til Brooklyn) by the Beastie Boys, which had come out the previous year. Morris Minor and the Majors consisted of comedian Tony Hawks, on the right in the picture on the record cover, together with Paul Boross and Phil Judge.

The cover featured, appropriately, a splendid red 1950 split-screen moggie convertible, RVW 178, a car still with us today.

If you really want to hear the song, here is the official video, although sadly, the moggie doesn't appear. The chap in the blue wig at the end of it is former Queen bassist, John Deacon.
