Stomp and the Plastic Bag Lady

This is a quick posting as I'm at work and want a cup of tea before I start- but I did think about this yeaterday and wanted to write about it before I forgot!
In Brighton in the 1980s there was an elderly lady in an old green coat who trundled around the streets whipping an empty plastic carrier bag and making it snap with a loud report, while she muttered angrily at anyone who passed her. She was a real feature of the personscape, and it was most interesting to see a small item in Stomp's repertoire that involved just such a percussive sequence. I wonder if they paid her royalties?
