I love Stella Street, Steptoe is good, but I just love the idea of Mick and Keef running the corner shop !

Seen it when it was first transmitted way back but never got into it. Phil Cornwell is a brilliant mimic though. :)
Cheer if you love Steptoe & Son!

Agreed!! It’s a hilarious scenario that practically writes itself :o. Besides the usual corner shop fare, Mick could sell slap and ladies retro-pajamas, while Keith tends to customers dental hygiene needs, “Hold still mister, this won’t hurt a bit”, a thick cloud of fag smoke hovering over his head that seems to follow him everywhere. Only question is, who would do their hair? Haven’t seen the show yet, but I’ll wager the shop is right next to a hairdressers :wink:. Maybe instead of selling them, they’d both hoard the hair care products: few things sillier than two 70 year old blokes bickering over hair lacquer :lol:.

The way they play it, Mick prances between the aisles, getting stressed about selling out of Bisto, while Keef just sits in the corner behind the till, (apparently stoned - no pun intended) trying to get Mick to chill out - it is worth a series all by itself

It’s a wonderful idea isn’t it? I’m imagining Mick & Keef’s as an animated series, like an adult version of The Simpsons. It would almost have to be a cartoon to allow for the, erm...zany antics, that pop stars are apt to indulge in. Blinding hangovers and pools of sick somehow always seem more colourful when they’re animated. Corner shop products alone would allow for endless gags. Local kids nicking sweets, spinsters purchasing prophylactics, the traditional miscellaneous character that shows up every week thumbing through magazines he’ll never buy while Keith moans, “Here, mate, this aint a library.” Disastrous band rehearsals in the back, the neighbours ringing Old Bill...and they haven’t even left the shop yet. Broad strokes maybe but that’s an episode right there :o.

I wonder if they live near Tom and Barbara Good. :mrgreen:
I thought we'd nick a wreath off one of the graves as we went in.
