Aaron, an appeal.
OK, you've voiced your bemusement of The Goons, but me being a life-long fan, I wonder if we could have a different photo for the header please?
Of course Michael Bentine was a founder member of The Goons, but there was some directional friction between him and Spike Milligan and he left after the first two series and none or few of those recordings exist as far as I know, besides I don't think they got into their stride and it became what it was until after Bentine had left.
I have never looked on Bentine as a Goon and would think it more appropriate if he wasn't included the header photo.
This would be my preference - there are many Goon type photos of the three of them, but there is a certain whimsical irony in this "sliding" facial expressions one I think :-
