Act 14 – Alan and Brenda

Throughout the years, there have been many great male/female musical duos.  The Captain and Tenille, Eurythmics, Wayne and Wanda, Alan and Brenda …

If you haven’t heard of the last one, don’t panic.  Not many people have.  More’s the pity.  Imagine Denis Walter teamed up with Ben Folds in drag.  Now, imagine Den and Ben after one too many shandies.  Indeed, the more I watch this, the more I’m convinced that Alan and Brenda demolished a cask of fruity lexia in the car park before going into the studio.

I’m not going to spoil this for you, but there’s a twist at around 0:50 into this astonishing performance.  To this day, I can’t work out whether or not it was part of the act.   All I will say is that anyone that was ever unfortunate enough to be dragged to a party held by their parents’ friends will relate to this act. Bernard appeared to relate to this act too … eventually.

Some people would say this act is tragic, but the real tragedy is that Alan and Brenda never got a recording contract with Dino Music or J&B.

About potluckarchive

The web's first site dedicated to 'Pot Luck', a talent show made by the Grundy Organisation for Network Ten Australia. 'Pot Luck' ran for only one season in 1987, and enjoyed a mild revival in 1993 when some of the more ambitious acts were featured as filler on 'The Late Show' on ABC-TV. Best remembered for highly critical resident judge, Bernard King.
