Next time I have to find that. The owner of the place says (in the video) it's getting harder to keep the business because the young people who move there don't eat the stuff at all.

OK - funnily enough the best way of getting into B S Johnson is to read Jonathan Coe's Like A Fiery Elephant which is a masterly biography even if you've never heard of Johnson. You'll then want to read the novels. Christie Malry's Own Double Entry was made into a film with music by Luke Haines of The Auteurs - if anyone has heard of them that is...

Johnson also made experimental films and TV. I think Fat Man On A Beach is on YouTube somewhere....
