Controversy raged today in Radiohead superfan circles, at the news that the famously â€˜seriousâ€™ bandâ€™s song â€˜Fake Plastic Treesâ€™ (controversially liked by Morrisey on Desert Island Discs in 2006), actually derives from a little known Christmas tune recorded by well known fart joke â€˜comedianâ€™ Ray â€˜Fatsoâ€™ Black. The ditty, named â€˜Fake Plastic Turdsâ€™ is an amusing anthem to the joys of the giving of novelty presents at Yuletide. It pokes unashamed fun at the inevitable mirth to be gained from gifting geriatric Granny a plastic poo.
A friend of the Bandâ€™s inner circle strenuously denied the claims. Ray â€˜Fatsoâ€™ Black couldnâ€™t be reached as heâ€™s currently touring the Outer Hebrides, but his agent was seen to be rubbing his hands in glee and muttering â€˜we can now cancel the Blackpool Xmas tourâ€™ on being relayed the news late yesterday.
