We are in the unusual position of having a happy Phil this week. We can’t work out what it is that’s caused this malfunction, but his mouth actually upturned into a smile. Both weird and slightly disturbing. Perhaps it’s Halloween, Bonfire Night or that cake thing on telly? Don’t forget that should you need any of these exciting events soundtracked we are here to supply the relevant wax.
We’ve got all sorts below…let’s light the blue touchpaper and go.
