In Minute 56 of The Whole Shebang, Mike and Jenny are broadcasting LIVE from jolly old England, and they’ve got the most special of special guests… Jenny’s sister Cat Anckorn-Harris! In this minute, the three of us cover Roxy Music’s penchant for in-jokes within their first single “Virginia Plain,” the references to both “Street-Fighting Man” and “Dancing in the Streets” in Mandy’s narration and the difficulties of having a threesome in a small cupboard, the success headline montage and its references to Judy Garland in “A Star is Born,” Brian’s stealing of Jack Fairy’s posse and their fantastic outfits, the awkward Oscar moment where Whoopi Goldberg dressed as Maxwell Demon, the history of rock and roll airplanes including the legendary “Starship,” Brian’s retinue as echo of Warhol’s Superstars, and David Hoyle’s role in this film as “Freddie,” and on late-night Channel 4.
