Music for Fish Slapping Dance and a few funny links by eroomnala on 13 January 2003 5:09am
 
If anyone isn't already aware of it I thought they might be interested to know that the music in the Fish Slapping Dance sketch (Mike's favorite Python piece) is adapted from
The MerryMakes Dance from the Nell Gwynne Suite by Edward German.
http://www.yso.org.uk/biographies/german.html
The full version runs to 2 minutes and 9 seconds and there is a historic mono recording of it on a CD entitled ABC Radio Themes Classic Themes from Popular ABC Radio Programs put out by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation

PS It's a bit out of date now (last updated August 2001) but here's a nice page about Mike

Here's a person with almost the same name as Mike who works in the Dept of Geology at the University of Otago in New Zealand. I wonder if he'll go to the books signings there.

Here's a portrait of all 6 Pythons with their names spelt out in Anagrams.
Mike is Milli Panache

Thanks for that, the page on Michael was very interesting with interviews I hadn't come across before.
