Oi got a brand new pair o' googly oyes

The trouble with novelty pop about agricultural implements and local cider is you can't keep it from sullying the purity of defaced monuments.

The statue of Wurzels founder Adge Cutler was put up outside the Royal Oak pub in the town - the place where the band recorded their first record 50 years ago - in 2016.

For the past four years Adge, who enjoyed hits with The Wurzels including Combine Harvester and I Am A Cider Drinker, has been standing proudly watching over the town.

But over the weekend someone has decided to give Adge a new look - by sticking a set of googly eyes on his face.
Scrumpy lives matter! :o

Clearly an appropriate response in staturay form to the oppression of downtrodded agricultrual labourers
(and increasingly severe limits on dirinking of cider in the workplace) .
Fact is ,that in that era landowners wouldn't permit them a half day to go to Specsavers....
