In Neil Ferron's wonderfully odd video for Shine A Light, all the happy folks of the countryside gather to give a guard of of honour to the proud lady pulling a cart carrying her prized possession - a half-human/half-goat baby.

And they are off to a special occasion: a wedding. But not any old wedding. Shine a Light throws a satirical spotlight on ritual behaviour, and this one follows the script of what usually happens when goat - even a half-goat that looks like rapper ishmael Butler – is involved. As Ferron says: "A little bit Wicker Man, and a little bit Soul Train."
