there's that pastels song too from prehistoric pastels-era (1982) about simon the garden gnome, I think it's called 'simon', it sounds like the pastels have all been down the allotments making friends with the tvp's 'arthur the gardener'

Those proggers Circulus have a funny/great/awful song called Power to the Pixies.
I'd go with funny / great, as I'm uncommonly fond of them. I know, I know...

Judged by the extended list of "former members" on Circulus's Wikipedia entry, though, Michael Tyack might just be the Oliver Plimsoles of neo-folk. Or the Mark E Smith. Fun to listen to, possibly less fun to work with.

Nobody's mentioned Gong yet? :o

The 'Pothead Pixies' are a recurring theme on most of their records, especially the 'Radio Gnome' trilogy.

Happy to help.
