Ethel Loves… Figs In Wigs


You know that anyone who has ‘Wigs’ in their name are gonna raise Ethel’s antenna. And a group of women who look, sound, and play like they exploded out of Ethel’s head..? We want to be their best friends forever. Throw in their song called… WAIT FOR IT… Cilla Black Bean Sauce. We are IN LOVE, darlings.

Who are these Figs in Wigs we hear you cry? They are five comedians, dancers, visual artists, musicians and circus entertainers who are currently touring in Show Off, all about our obsession with social media and ourselves. What was that..? Sorry, Ethel was just checking her phone. They call it a ‘variety show (without the variety)’. We’re smitten, kittens!

Can we go back to Cilla Black Bean Sauce for a minute? Yeah, we’ve not stopped thinking about that since we mentioned it either. The title alone would be enough, right? But it is also a fabulous electronic track ALL ABOUT CELEBRITY NAME FOOD PUNS. That is correct Mermates – we’ve just given you the heads up on THE BEST THING THAT HAS EVER HAPPENED TO CULTURE.
