I have been informed that my notetaking was inaccurate and I should have written "A Bunty of Bunting".
Bunty was a girls comic book. As a child I never read it as it was for Girls (ugh!) and so was probably about hair and makeup and kissing and stuff. Sadly it closed in 2001 so I may never know (unless someone would like me to review some, in which case I'll take a butcher's round the charity shops for an old album, or possible see what's on ebay).
