Reuben recently revealed to me that whenever he hears the song ‘Play that funky music’ by the mostly never heard of band Wild Cherry he imagines Kevin as the lead singer.
Does this mean that the singer sounds like Kevin when he sings or does Kevin have a striking resemblance to Wild Cherry singer Rob Parissi?

I don’t think a striking resemblance to this gentleman is necessary for Reuben to make the connection. If Reuben had said that every time he hears this song he imagines a packet of Fruit Pastilles as the singer I wouldn’t have been particularly surprised.
That said Kev does look remarkably like this man and I think the matter bears further investigation.
The song started playing at a wedding we were at last week.
I looked up at Reuben and he looked back and said, “Don’t! I know what you’re going to say and don’t!”
I’ve been telling Kev for a long time now that he should grow a moustache and this is further proof that he’d look smashing if he was ‘taching.
By “telling” I mean “dropping very oblique subliminal hints”, but I think it’s going in.
Not all taches need to be natural. Grab some shoe polish and Groucho your top lip.
Next time we see him, that’s what we’ll do.
When he’s alive, sorry sorry wrong word, when he’s awake? Do we pin him under the plastic chapel of chat (or whatever his static caravan is called) and smother his face in sh-molish?
I think so. The Bridlington Static Mansion is where his facial hair will flourish.
Bring on the Seaside Palace of Croon. He’ll wake up a completely different person.
