Description

This is a clever reflection of the actual terraced street where the characters reside, which itself hasn't changed since it was built during the late Victorian era.

Billy is determined to ban Stan from the Rovers after the bogs are blocked again, though Len’s reluctance to attend the kangaroo court lead some to suspect one of his own ‘legendary logs’ may have been responsible for the blockage. Alas, Alan was exposed as the Mystery Masturbator after leaving a trail of spunk in the back-alley and voluntarily entered a clinic to cure him of his curious habit. The only feasible way round this I can see at the moment is to utilise the platforms I still have – Vimeo and Patreon. BUGGERNATION STREET is permanently trapped in a perpetual Northern England of the mid-1970s, somewhere between 1973-76.

Ken is showing-off as an amateur chef, but his plans to make a meal for Len and Ray are sabotaged by his snooty attitude and incompetence, despite Minnie Caldwell’s assistance. Elsie is recovering from her accident in hospital when Alan visits to take advantage of her dazed condition; she agrees to have him back on a trial basis.

It was a shame because much of his stuff was genuinely witty and that narrow demographic of 70s British childhood tv nostalgia was really resonant for me. With the characters and tone of the prospective series now pretty much established, we’re plunged straight into familiar filthy territory as Stan’s hopes of joining the Masonic set known as the Buggernation Brotherhood are scuppered by his reluctance to participate in the sodomy ritual that marks a new member’s initiation ceremony. Annie Walker is sworn in as the new Chairman of Weatherfield Satanic Abuse Society, despite not being a Satanic Abuser. Deirdre's mother Blanche has a crystal ball that depicts a future in which Deirdre has a prominent gunt and a neck like a turtle's scrotum whilst Blanche herself resembles the bride of Quasimodo.Described by the Guardian TV critic Digby Smugg as ‘The Archers directed by Derek and Clive’, ‘Buggernation Street’ featured the everyday stories of decadent folk living on a terraced street in the fictional Lancashire town of Weatherfield.

Any similarities to other television soap operas produced by Granada for the ITV network were purely deliberate. Len is in a foul mood as a swimming contest featuring the under-14s in bikinis is relocated from Weatherfield Baths to the lido - a venue he’s barred from. Meanwhile, hungover Stan is pushed into the farting competition the day after being a floppy observer of Maggie and Norma’s ‘lesbian sex act’; Norma also finds time to receive an education from Ken on the subject of Joyce’s x-rated love letters. It’s that time of the year again when Albert Tatlock wins his annual accolade, marked by a street party during the day and a fancy dress do at the Rovers in the evening; celebrations are extended when Betty is voted ‘Barmaid Babe of the Month’ and Bet’s bitterness at being excluded from the contest is compensated for by a private film show at Len’s place.I like King Crimson very much and I like Robert Fripp, but what makes Toyah gets her tits out every Sunday whilst singling like a strangled hyena? there was also one video which pretty much repeated the 'everyone in power is a nonce' conspiracty theory word for word from the David Icke forum thread about that which I was reading at the time.

The Street’s residents are busy trying to guess the identity of ‘The Mystery Masturbator’ who has been leaving a trail of evidence in the back-alley behind the houses; Hilda accuses Alan Howard in the Rovers, leading to a fist-fight between Elsie’s fella and Stan. The Rovers takes on the Flying Horse in a sporting contest: Len doesn’t quite live up to the standards of Graham Miles, but Betty and Ena triumph in darts and dominoes respectively.Jerry is out of his depth as he takes Mavis for a meal at a swanky Italian restaurant, declaring he’s far happier eating beans-on-toast in his socks, vest and underpants in front of the telly. A campaign to get the show taken off the air began the day after the pilot episode was broadcast, but Granada milked and ignored the outrage in equal measure, arguing so few people were watching that they may as well leave it where it was - whilst simultaneously promoting the programme by ensuring Peter Adamson (AKA Len Fairclough) was present at the premiere of every new Mary Millington movie as well as carrying out public functions such as opening the children’s pool of Salford Baths in 1974. The self-styled intellectual of the street, Ken Barlow, also resides in Albert's house, having once been married to his niece Valerie, who died after electrocuting herself with a hairdryer (an appliance the distraught Ken often wanked into following her death). Rita makes her debut at a new nightclub by performing a moving rendition of ‘My Ding-a-Ling’, though makes it clear to Pink Floyd-loving Ken that she doesn’t do requests.
