Ali and I thought Adamski’s ‘Killer’ had a peculiar similarity to The Turtles’ ‘Happy Together’, so now they are. Happy together.
Music for canines and felines
I’ve just written two tracks for a pet-inspired (!) album for Universal – Snuggle Bugging and Bow Wow Bounce. You can hear them HERE.
Ali and I were asked to perform at the Marie Curie Christmas Carol concert (lots of nice pictures HERE). It was a lovely evening in Southwark Cathedral and we serenaded them with versions of Last Christmas and Merry Xmas. I even crow-barred a nose flute solo in there. Ho ho ho!
Not To Be Sniffed At
Nose flute expert Antoine de Carolus and I recently wrote an article for The Idler about the history of the Nose Flute. It’s reproduced below, just click on each image to make it bigger. For more information than you’ll ever need about the nose flute, visit Antoine’s amazing website, noseflute.org.
The Ballad of Dorothy Parker
Ali and I finally had a go at our favourite Prince tune, the wonderful Ballad of Dorothy Parker. Ali’s gone off for an adventure around the world for a bit but we’ll get some more stuff done once he gets back.
