Weirdly, the whole thing reminds me of the bawdy 1967 Carry On series film, Carry on Doctor, and of Phil Collins’ famous reference, when introducing a Genesis song, to a porn film he’d seen called ‘Danish Dentists on the job’.
And this sample track, from his debut album ‘Ready for fun’ (I’ll bet he is) is merely one on a double vinyl album that has several other titles that could be considered a little risqué such as ‘Ready for fun’, ‘Ready for love’ and ‘Don’t force me’ although that one is subtitled ‘Alzheimer Blues.’
Pitched in among them is ‘The Kandahar Desert (and Elsewhere). Perhaps he’s an Afghanistan War veteran as well.
But for all this real or imagined ribaldry I was more impressed with the fact that Michael Krogsgaard was just 21 years old when he founded the record company Hookfarm, which releases this debut album today (13th January), which is also a Friday and that explains why there are no other releases today. The physician pours ice cubes down the vest of fear as Blackadder used to say.
