Morris Minor And The Majors

Real Name:
Tony Hawks
Profile:
Comedy trio from the late 1980s and brainchild of Tony Hawks, (British actor, writer and comedian) assisted by two of his friends, Paul Boross and Phil Judge. Their Stutter Rap parody on the Beastie Boys No Sleep Til Brooklyn sold over 220,000 copies reaching number four in the UK charts in 1988 and number one in Australia. It was produced by Jakko aka Grand Master Jelly Tot.
Their follow-up This Is The Chorus, a play on the Stock Aitken and Waterman "hit-formula", was less successful, but they landed a TV series Morris Minor's Marvelous Motors, written by and starring Hawks, in which the fictional bandleader tries to balance his pop career with managing his garage. It ran for one series in 1989. Tony Hawks is now better known for his comedy show appearances (e.g. Have I Got News For You) and book writing (Round Ireland With A Fridge and Playing The Moldovans At Tennis).

In the late-80s, with kids stealing Volkswagen logos up and down the country, Morris Minor and The Majors were a low-grade skit on the Beasties Boys - White middle class kids pretending to be black and straight out of the ghetto. The Ali G of its day if you will.
