John & the Meanies (Surrey)

1. The Concise Oxford Dictionary states: 'bi'det n. Low basin for washing, esp. of the genital region'. It does not, therefore, take much thought to realise that the humour level will not suit all tastes. It is, however, a very funny and extremely well-made pop video which has the additional merits of being original, witty and excellently performed. John & the Meanies (alias Clive Freeman-Edmondson, Sean Mahoney, Jeremy and John Bevan) say that they have been writing and recording their own comedy sketches and songs onto audio cassettes 'since shortly after they learned to talk'. In 1985 they decided that they would attempt their first video based on a song they had written and originally recorded some years previously. Meanies' friend Paul Monaghan took charge of the artwork (cut-out bidets, etc.) as well as the camerawork.
