As it’s Easter week and every other bugger seems to be on holiday, for those who aren’t, it’s competition time: It gets harder and harder to devise competitions as 99 times out of 100 you can Bing the answer (yes, I’ve switched) within moments, but couldn’t resist trying people out on this, a very strange (but far from unaccomplished) cover version of Deep Purple’s Mistreated. I mean who would have thought he could star in one of our all time favourite sitcoms AND manage this? The question: can you tell us who is singing? Click on the link below leads you to a one off page where you can listen or download the MP3. Answer next week, and the prize – a mint copy of the EMI remaster of Burn on vinyl – awarded to the first person out of the eHat who gets it right. If nobody manages it, we’ll devise a clue. Put your answers in the comments section, and I will keep them hidden.
Many thanks to Norman Barrel and Nick Robinson.
