I haver that comic too, Gene Colan on art.

It's most notable for having what appears to be a "missing song" that's in no version of the stage, screen, or known "dropped" numbers I can find; The Greek Chorus appear in costume (Which means there's a song coming on) with the words;

"Who's the best, the beautiful green one? Who? Audrey Two!
Who's a star, if ever I've seen one? Who? Audery Two"

And then continues in rhythmic prose for another couple of panels, which to me screams that it's

The most recent Broadway production soundtrack includes more "lost songs" from the movie and show than I've heard before (Audrey Two's "Bad" which is sort of a precursor to "Mean Green Mother", Audrey's "The more he loves me" a painfully depressing lovesong about her abusive relationship with Orin, "A Little Dental Music" which is supposed to be for the dentists waiting room, and Orin's "I found a hobby" a precursor to "Dentist!" which details how he developed his taste for pain) but nothing which seems to link to the comic text...

Ooh, shiny! I may have to get that Broadway soundtrack at some point. I've had the film one for years (I think it was one of the first CDs I ever owned!) and that is very good but it doesn't have such delights as 'Mushnik and Son'.
I saw it down at the New Theatre just last week with Sylvester McCoy. It was awesome.

Not the New Theatre Oxford? Crap, I didn't realise it was there or I'd have gone to see it! :(

I can thoroughly recommend that soundtrack, this (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Little-Shop-Horrors-Alan-Menken/dp/B0000CEROJ/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=music&qid=1237968195&sr=1-2) is the one to go for.

Nah, New Theatre Cardiff. Or New Theatre Acton if you watch Sarah Jane Adventures. I believe it's doing the rounds though, so maybe it'll head your way.
