In series 2 of Fist Of Fun, there was a lengthy report on the Shrewsbury Pie Pie Festival. Every year (Brussels bureaucrats permitting), all the bits of leftover pie in the town are gathered up and baked inside a Pie Pie, which is then consumed by all the townspeople during the festival. Usually, no more than six or so of them die of food poisoning each time. (Once a decade, the leftovers from all the Pie Pies are baked into a Pie Pie Pie, but let's leave that aside for now as an unnecessary complication.)
So. Over the past year, in a nostalgic fit partly inspired by the landmark of my 50th birthday, I've been going back over my annual Pick Of The Year compilations, writing up all the ones that I hadn't got around to discussing on here before. That makes a total of 31 compilations so far, which will increase to 32 in the very near future when POTY 2013 hits the streets.
The Pick Of The Year CDs are pies, if you like. And 32/50 is the Pie Pie: an attempt to boil the music from 32 years of my life down to a double CD set featuring one track per year. So, if you found ploughing through over two days worth of music videos a little daunting, maybe you'll find 160 minutes a little easier to cope with.
