"Sketch show featuring four new writer-performers who came, fairly conspicuously, from the Cambridge revue tradition. The format was interesting, interspersing standard sketches with sections of character dialogue. The group, who had previously performed as 'The Throbbs', were Tim Firth, Tim de Jongh (aka Tim Scott), Michael Rutger (Michael Smith, a devoted horror fan, taking his pseudonym from actor Rutger Hauer) and William Vandyck. Their self-inspired characters -- Firthie, Tim, Mike and Will -- presented each show as if it was coming from some exterior location (fairground, space shuttle, top of the Post Office Tower...), and spent most of the time squabbling about various recurring issues, notably Firthie's eating habits, Will's militarist upbringing and in particular the North-South divide, which usually became the North-South-Dutch divide as a result of Tim's surrealistic interjections. Tim Firth, meanwhile, also contributed a selection of his songs, which somehow managed to rise above such Richard Stilgo-esque titles as "Everyone Can Do Impressions Badly". Firth (who apparently composed his first full-length musical while still at school) was at the same time plying a similar trade with appearances at a piano on Rory Bremner's BBC2 series, and also cropped up in several editions of the radio Mary Whitehouse Experience."
I downloaded the file using eMule. It was originally a real audio file which appeared to have been downloaded directly from BBC7 listen again, so many thanks to the original uploader, especially as I've been searching for this show almost forever. I converted it to MP3 using dbpoweramp, then trimmed it with audacity. Oh, how I love free software and trials.
