Sunny Days and… ‘West Side Story’?
Fuck me. Finally the sun's shining. Cool. Mart and me went on a bit of a flyaround coz that's what we do when the sun shines. Anyway – bumped into pigeon actor mate, Doug, who told me some of his thespy mates were rehearsing for their rendition of 'West Side Story'. Fucking hilarious. West Side Story starring a load of pigeons. Just so had to go for the laugh. Took the cam along too…
This is Edward doing 'Something's Coming'. Totally pissed ourselves. The bread bits were the 'pretend audience'. Yep – he was singing to a load of mouldy crumbs! Said it 'kept his focus'. He did all the head moves and everything – looking all serious…
'Could it be, yes it could. Something's coming, something good. If I can wait…!'.
Jesus Christ. Too much!
And this is Mike as… Maria! I kid you not. Top it all he's from Scotland with a serious Glasgow accent. A full on Scots bloke pigeon playing Maria. For fuck's sake!
He was trying to perfect his 'lady walk' when we took this – ready to get going with 'I Feel Pretty'. That was the last straw. We were crying with laughter so much we had to leave.
Gonna get a load of us along next time. Fucking priceless.
