While John Travolta and Olivia Newton John were enjoying the number one platter du jour with Summer Nights (October 1978), Ivor Biggun was sullying the Top Thirty with his paen to onanism, The Winker’s Song (misprint). Following his success with indecent haste, he released a long player full of similar smut. And now it’s back, restored to the original sequence (almost) with a few extras added. It’s available now for streaming / download and will be disc One of The Compleat Works (misprint) of Ivor Biggun.
Coming in 2021 and containing a bonus CD of Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Mostly Blue. The five disc set will have all the original albums with bonus tracks and will be a one-off, limited edition. Meanwhile the albums will be available soon on streaming services with upgraded sound. Crikey…
Banned for nearly 40 years, Ivor’s notorious ode to onanism has been played to hijack the broadcasts of a local UK radio station. This has caused the usual reactions of amusement or disgust, but there are some priceless comments in The Guardian’s article.
Listeners were last subjected to the song, which uses the word “wanker” 36 times, this weekend during a live family broadcast from Mansfield’s Party in the Market event. Tony Delahunty, managing director of Mansfield 103.2, said: “Some people have told me that their children have started humming the song in the car.”

All of Ivor’s delicate ditties are, of course, available to hear on Spotify
We’re saddened to announce that “The Fruity Bits Of Ivor Biggun” (aka The Best of…) and the uber-rude “Handling Swollen Goods” are no longer available on CD. We’ve finally run out of stock and, with limited demand, it’s not economical to do the minimum re-pressing of 500. So for now you’ll have to download. There’s still a few years supply of “More Fruity Bits” on CD so buy it now before it’s gone forever.
In other news, Johnny G – (the subject of an unusually clean Ivor Biggun ode) – has four of his albums issued on CD, available from Amazon
That time of the year again! One day a bright spark will decide to make “Give Us A Wank For Christmas” or one of Ivor’s other XXXmas songs the festive No. 1 hit. Meanwhile if you’re thinking of giving your loved one the best Christmas present EVER (that’s an Ivor Biggun album in case you hadn’t figured it out), do order it now. Stiff Weapon will be shutting up shop from December 20 until the New Year, so that means there won’t be any copies for sale at Amazon, Play or on Ebay. And, of course, DON’T order from this site after that date until we return.
As ever, a very merry one-off-the-wristmas to all you wankers (and don’t forget to download Ivor’s Xmas songs if you don’t have the CD’s)
