I feel like I'm catching up on something that everyone else probably knows, but I decided to give the old man's "Shaved Fish" LP a whirl, hit "#9 Dream" which shamefully I'd never heard before (lord knows how) and the penny dropped as to where your name came from.
That is, assuming it comes from there. If it didn't, ignore the rantings of the retrograde madman.
Best avatar ever. Arctic Monkeys circa-acne were the best. When you hit 18, start going to pubs, and generally relate to WPSIA, life gets immeasurably better. "I'm sorry officer, is there an age you're s'posed to be? 'Cos nobody... told me"
For the benefit of Mr. Kite
There will be a show tonight on trampoline
The Hendersons will all be there
Late of Pablo Fanque's Fair, what a scene
Over men and horses hoops and garters
Lastly through a hogshead of real fire!
In this way Mr. K. will challenge the world!
The celebrated Mr. K.
Performs his feat on Saturday at Bishopsgate
The Hendersons will dance and sing
As Mr. Kite flies through the ring don't be late
Messrs. K. and H. assure the public
Their production will be second to none
And of course Henry The Horse dances the waltz-!
The band begins at ten to six
When Mr. K. performs his tricks without a sound
And Mr. H. will demonstrate
Ten somersets he'll undertake on solid ground
Having been some days in preparation
A splendid time is guaranteed for all
And tonight Mr. Kite is topping the bill!
