...Then you'll love these two musical geniuses. I had the privilege of seeing them perform together in one of their hilarious shows, and, sadly, 'Who Plays Wins' was their first recording and 'A Quiet Night Out' (also on offer here) seems to have been their only other - 'after which, we stop'.
As a child I used to listen to Flanders and Swann, and I think Stilgoe and Skellern are more up-to-date, pacier experts in the same genre of musical wit and humour. Would that they had carried on performing and recording together. Social comment from the closure of the Welsh mines to the antics of the C of E are all grist to the mill; some pathos, a lot of humour, and a remarkable talent displayed by Richard Stilgoe of creating lyrics from shouted out suggestions from the audience are all displayed, along with the extreme musical capability both of them have.
Some of their stage humour is visual and you have to use your imagination on the odd occasion, but the songs stand up for themselves very well and will appeal to fans of all ages.
