“A CLASSIC Pet Shop Boys hit has been given a Fenland twist by a musician who has dedicated a special parody to “Eastrea boys and Whittlesey girls”. nthony Nottingham, performing under his ‘Dark Villager’ alias, has had more than 1,400 hits in just three days after he uploaded his parody of ‘West End Girls’ to YouTube. ‘Whittlesey Girls’ mentions a host of landmarks in the Fenland town including the Nags Head and the Ivy Leaf Club - and it even celebrates “getting the Cambs Times or the Evening Standard”. The chorus chimes: “In a Fenland town, a dead end world. The Eastrea boys and Whittlesey girls.” One YouTube comment read: “This should so be number one this Christmas! Sheer Genius!” Another overseas fan posted: “Awesome - I love it! Can’t imagine why I left Whittlesey for Auckland... what WAS I thinking?!” ”
Ask The Dark Villager anything...
Q: I don't understand why I gain fans when no-one actually presses play!? Even odder, perhaps, considering I have a re-created Depeche Mode Photographic here ... and this appears to be up your street.
A: same thing here, not many plays of late, (fans are added also via twitter / facebook etc into the reverb fan stats, I agree, shame not many people actually bother to press play! I did press play on yours though... and will play some more later, very enjoyable!
