Fergus Fox

Name: Fergus, but I’m mainly called Red.

Weight: Small but speedy.

Distinguishing features: Fast, fiery and oh so foxy.

Catchphrase: Eggs? What eggs?

Likes: Eggs … Wha-a-a-a-at? I only take the spare ones. Not as if the hens would eat them eh?

Dislikes: Eagles (the winged variety).

Favourite film: I love anything by 20th Century Fox … see what I did there?

Favourite music: My personal Top Ten …

10. Adam & The Ants -  Never Trust A Man (With Egg On His Face)
That's what the voices from outer space tell me ...

9. Beastie Boys - Egg Raid On Mojo
Before they discovered / invented / purloined rap, it seems the Beasties were punks at heart.
See also Egg Man, which sounds more like the Beasties you'd expect. 

8. The Flaming Lips - They Punctured My Yolk
A love story about two trainee astronauts torn apart when only one of them gets to go into space.
Or something.

7. The Seahorses - Happiness Is Egg-Shaped
From a great lost Britpop album that you could probably pick up for a penny on Amazon if you went looking.

6. Tarnation - Little Black Egg
A lot more jangly than I remember.
Then I discovered... it's actually a cover of an old 60’s hit by a Florida garage band called The Nightcrawlers. 
Not bad... but I still prefer the Tarnation version.

5. The Human League - Being Boiled
One of the earliest entirely electronic records ... get boiled alive by those synths. No idea what the lyrics are about though. 

4. Fight Like Apes - Poached Eggs
If I understand the metaphors correctly, this song is a bit rude …

3. Tom Waits - Eggs And Sausage (In A Cadillac With Susan Michelson)

2. Giant Sand - Temptation of Egg
The shape of a woman ... temptation of an egg?  Hhhmmm …

1. Mansun - Egg Shaped Fred
Mansun go all 'Coo-Coo-Cachoo' on us, inviting Egg Shaped Fred for tea.


Favourite Book: Fox in Socks by Dr Seuss.

Food: Depends on what comes first … the chicken or the egg.

Describe yourself in three words: Redheaded rascal.
