The first CD,called The Satanic Sketches and the second, The Breakfast Tapes are available at JB Hi Fi in Melbourne.

My favourite sketches on The Satanic Sketches takes off Contiki Tours and some pretentious 80's rock band, which is probably having a go at Nick Cave.

I've got both of the cd's.

My favourite is the ad for the Slag Club
"And free casual sex. That's right, our resident band free casual sex playing the best of Cold Chisel from 7:30 to 7:35, when they run from the stage under a hail of bottles"

Or the old racist bugger, "I went for a counter at the Criterion the other day. You know what they was serving? Bloody Lusagne! Forget your bloody mixed grill"

Santo's burnt old Vietnam soldier turned security guard is pretty funny.
Quarter Pounder, McNuggets, Fillet O' Fish, I'm McChockas.

Hey Ben could there maybe a chance of people that own these fantastic cd's to send you a copy and for you to include them in the whole set??

Classic line from one of em Rob says "We now cross to Dan in the shit music van. You there Dan?" he replies "Yes mate!!" and all Rob says is "Fantastic"
Dont know if the words are exact but flippin funny.

Anyhow just a thought.
50 BUCKS!!!!!!!

My favourite sketch is the sword and sandals epic, The Splade of Damocles. Tommy G's mincing Roman emperor cracks me up. He used the same voice when he played an arsonist in the Funky Squad radio serial.
Actor Melvyn Hayes and stars of the Carry On films.

For those people looking for a copy of 'Thank You for Being You', I remember borrowing a cassette copy of it from the St Kilda Library many, many, years ago.

But guess what? It is still available!

Looked up the Port Phillip Library website, and its Emerald Hill branch (195 Bank St, South Melbourne) has a copy.

http://library.portphillip.vic.gov.au/s ... H/d265a9d6

Being a public library, just because it is available doesn't necessarily mean it is on the shelf - but one of you keen people out there might be interested in tracking it down.

I found the D-Gen theme song single (and Five in a Row) at a local second-hand music shop last month. Nick Bufalo sings it. The TV mix on side one is the normal theme tune, while the dance mix features samples of various speeches, including Gough Whitlam's dismissal speech and someone saying "It shall be the policy of this station to regard...of the United States". I listened to it and I can't get it out of my head.

The words are:
"They've postponed our graduation,
We've put on hold our education,
We're more concerned with relaxtion,
Now we are the D-Generation,
D-Generation.

We have a new slam on education,
It's all based on observation,
We recreate the situation,
With the new style, new style
Of the imagination.
D-Generation.

We don't want to analyse the inflation,
Don't want to deal with legislation,
We've become a group mutation,
Products of video communication.
D-Generation.

You can see what we can see,
You know it can be found,
Anywhere, everywhere,
All you need is some re-education,
By the D-Generation.

And the line "D-Generation" is repeated until the end of the song (along with some "woh-oh" harmonies)

Anyone have the opening credits from the D-Gen TV show?
"Well David, what do you think of the Andromeda Galaxy?"
"I gave it four billion stars."
