Seeya Later, Ashley Slater! TONIGHT that is

A graffiti mural with Phoole in it spans the wall of a large urban building. The Phoole and the Gang fuchsia flag logo flies in the corner.

Tonight's episode of Phoole & the Gang is Show #440, but I will not have any time to play any Apollo 440, because I have so much Ashley Slater and Mr. B the Gentleman Rhymer and Harry Belafonte to play.

The Ashley Slater I will play will also be Fatboy Slim (because Ashley co-wrote 'Weapon of Choice'), and the INSANE maximally-multicultural KinChiCat, and Glenn Gatsby, and Wolfgang Lohr, and Iain Ballamy (because Ashley produced the soundtrack to MIRRORMASK), and Bart&Baker, and Freak Power, and Betty Booom, because Ash has played with everybody. He has probably even collaborated with you. Search your feelings. You know it to be likely.

I will have some Mr.B bits on the show that I've never had on the show before, and some that I've had on the show a lot, because I love all of his work. I'm playing both of these chaps heavily because I missed both their birthdays last week, and also just because I want to.

And you have to have some Harry Belafonte, because he is so important, and he died this week, 96 years old, and I will forever remember when he was on that program that formed my concept of living as an artist, THE MUPPET SHOW.

This Blague post happens to be an EXCERPT of a post that I posted to the Phoole Patreon Platoon, my generous and indulgent patrons. Their version of the post has considerably MORE POST in it, with more in it about my life. You are welcome to join the Platoon at if that sounds intriguing to you!

NEXT WEEK on Phoole & the Gang: REVENGE OF THE FRIK!
