Vikki Stone & The Flashbacks: Big Neon Letters
Comedy songs in band format
This article is from 2011.
Effervescent musical comic Stone is desperate to be on TV. She’s been there before on embarrassing adverts and Blue Peter, but she craves the studio lights, if only to get close to her teenage crush Phillip Schofield. In a bruising encounter she emits zero chemistry with the drummer and guitarist who comprise backing band The Flashbacks, but offers an array of sonic odes to her cat Billy and ABBA.
