Moonalice poster Chris Shaw
According to Moonalice legend, today’s poster by Chris Shaw depicts the lovely Mateel Moonalice. Mateel was angelic in appearance – believe it or not, wings are not common in the Moonalice tribe. She was also a prodigious inventor. The poster shows her crowning achievement, the Octo-Bong. Not only did the Octo-Bong deliver an eight pipe buzz, it could be played like Zamfir’s pan flute.
According to Moonalice legend, our experience with the river that passes the Benbow Music and Arts Festival has taken a page from the Flintstones, thanks to the presence of billions of rocks, but only a trickle of water. This time the rocks were not in evidence, drowning as they were in prodigious amounts of rapidly flowing H20. No satisfactory explanation was provided for this change, but we suspect BP is involved.
