Im a huge Goons and Python fan.
I have only been into the Goons for about 8 yrs now but have all the BBC cds and am eagerly awaiting the next release ,out this month.I also have quite a few on good old vinyl.

My interest in them really came from the Pythons who reguarly quoted Spike as being a huge influence,apart from Eric ,who it seems was more influenced by Beyond The Fringe and in particular Peter Cook(another genius).

Since,borrowing a couple of Goon shows from a library,to see what all the fuss was about,theres been no looking back.

For the curious,try the Goon Show Preservation Society .

Nice but all too brief part for Spike in Brian. He just happened to be on holiday in Tunisia at the time of filming.

Any other Spike/Python fans out there with additional comments?

Would like to hear from you.

I love the goons :lol:

Though my interest was the other way around, I was a goons fan, and then when a friend of mine started reading out dialouge from holy grail and raving about it, i thought, this sounds very goonish.... wasn't long before I became a python fan too :lol:

I have a whole heap of their shows on cd, downloaded way back in the days of winmx... and lots of songs... ying tong iddle i po!

oh and my internet name, fogchicken, is also a goons reference :P

I wish I could get into goons too, but unfortunately I have not found a lot of material.
