Lost and Found


Does anyone have "Die graskop polka" by Nico Carstens in good quality? It was the tune used in the end sequence for the film Slacker by Richard Linklater.

There are some Nico Carstens albums listed here, but none have this arrangement...
Slacker was released on DVD on 13th January 2003, so the quality should be pretty good on it.

Note: The tune is actually called "Skokiaan" by Horst Wende (composed by August Musarurwa). The credits seem to be incorrect!
The Weekenders by Vic Reeves and Bob Mortimer. I have a second generation copy on VHS. Is this, or the Blue Heaven Pilot episode by Frank Skinner, available on DVD?
1992, C4, Bunch of Five.

Does anyone have the theme tune to "You should be so lucky" in good quality? 1986, BBC1, 4.20pm
Anyone remember Buttercup Buskers? 1986, BBC1, 3.55pm

Reveal on the ZX Spectrum used The Maple Leaf rag by Scott Joplin as the tune on the intro screen. It's not on Fishy.


I liked the fanzine competitions. This one is from Your Sinclair Issue 14 (Feb 1987), page 63. Spectacular.
They seem to use a Ferguson 38030 black and white portable, 48k+, Multiface (with through port), a Quickshot 2 and a Sinclair Thermal Printer. Nice. I also liked Reflex by Ewan Dalton and Phil Graham from Bit-By-Bit in Irvine reviewed in Crash Issue 38 (March 1987), page 53. They liked Tetris.
