Bok Bok Bok - pullets and prima donnas - legend of the dirty bird in deep fat friers KFC style with yams, red beans and wild rice - "those little golden birdies" as Beefheart described them in the hardcore retro rock of *Clear Spot" - a tasty poultry show in deed that brings to mind memories of feeding chickens at the family farm in Langtoft - bok bok bok!
