5.0 out of 5 stars "There's a Boy Puking Up in the Lavatory..." 7 Jun 2009
Format:Audio CD
Graham Fellows is a uniquely funny boy/man; from his burning, yearning for a girlfriend in 'True Love Stories' to his most recent incarnation as fastidious, Austin Ambassador obsessed John Shuttleworth ('500 Bus Stops' is an essential dvd!) he is constantly amusing and has a rare gift for presenting pretention/stupidity in an engaging, involving way.

You're a strange fish indeed if you've never felt the agony of unrequited love. That delicious, suicide-inducing ache in the pit of your stomach and the sure knowledge that you'd take bullets in the mouth for someone that doesn't even know you exist..
Often thought to be exclusively the territory of the pre-pubescent, unrequited love can strike at any time of life, in fact; the older you are when it hits, the more painful it inevitably is.

Anyway, Fellows here is concentrating exclusively on teen angst/lust/failure; a quick snog on your way to the chippy; a sneaky grope while babysitting; that disloyal, wretched, saggy cow (IE: the funniest, most intelligent, most beautiful woman in the world !); thrifty, cowardly declarations of amour (gain, but please - no pain!); set against a throbbing, powerful backdrop of late buses and not-done homework.
Inspiring stuff.

Of course it would be a better world if kids were depressed and morose instead of buzzing around slashing people on the Underground. Surely teenage girls would feel a lot safer if a dumped boyfriend retreated into himself and wrote poetry rather than beat her to a pulp before throwing himself in front of a train while high on crack.

Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Bought it for two tracks, bet you can't guess which ones, but stayed for the whole thing.

Check him out on Radio 7 each week too as John Shuttleworth, ha! Great stuff.... You'd like this.

5.0 out of 5 stars A hidden treasure 16 Dec 2009
By Jim
Format:Audio CD
My brother bought me a second hand copy of this album when I was living in student accommodation in the 1980's. Within a few weeks, all 20 of the students in my corridor knew the album word for word and half of them had bought or made their own copy. I bet most of them could still sing along to most of the tracks today!

The album covers the extreme highs and lows of being a teenage boy - drinking too much cider, thinking you're in love, acne, two-timing girlfriends, paper rounds, breeding fancy mice (?), and much more. The hilarious lyrics are set to explosive, catchy tunes that you will never tire of.

You probably won't want to play this in front of your elderly aunt or granny, but most people who can remember their teenage years will love this album and empathise with the experiences of Jilted John. If you were a teenager in the 1970's, you'll get a little bit extra out of this collection of songs with its references to the music, fashion, and fads of the time.

One tip: if you do buy this CD, skip track 1 or shuffle it to the end. The original album tells a story that begins with "Baz's Party". Track 1 on the CD (a B side), while not a bad track, seems out of place and takes some of the impact away from the start of the album.

It is astonishing to think that Jilted John (Graham Fellows) went on to become John Shuttleworth. Although both characters share a witty, quirky view of very ordinary day life, the difference in their music and physical appearance makes it hard to believe that they are one and the same.

This collection of songs is a buried gem that deserves to be dug up again and given the recognition it deserves. Of course this won't happen, but you will have fun digging.

5.0 out of 5 stars A lost classic perhaps? 3 Mar 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It's a classic! A great funny 'concept album' that deserves to be better known. Highly recommended to anyone wanting a laugh.
