Vivian Stanshall: Afloat!

Brian Case, New Musical Express, 25 November 1978

Yes, it's the tang of the salt spray in a Force 9 from Finisterre with regard to this one, hipmates; A rollicking tale which tells how Silver's parrot changed his name (to "VIVIAN STANSHALL"), beached himself in a foetid creek and weathered the uncanny storms called up by the sea-djinns of Sargasso. AND promoted his new album. Word processing: BRIAN CASE.

Total word count of piece: 2905
