    It seems very remiss of me to have never done Pulp for the seasons before. The poor intonation and string buzz of my dolphin seemed suited to this too. So, living as I do in Hampshire, I found a field and started playing on my lunch break. Unfortunately the castle in the field is covered in scaffolding at the moment so I couldn't get the money shot.

    My cover of Sorted just finished its upload so here it is. I was never interested/ involved with Rave culture, but Jarvis is such a fine songwriter I had to do this one. Warning, contains a bad word, but just once. It's as Jarvis wrote it so I left it in.

    You do realise that doing all these songs about drugs could get us chalked up
    in Youtube's little black book. The P.C. police are everywhere and drugs, swearing
    death, suicide and Veganism are all taboo subjects... and if you say a wrong word
    you will be swarmed by the Social justice warriors. Regardless here is a Bert Jansch
    song that was recently covered by Neil Young which delves into those subjects.
    Third and last song for the season.

    I'd a couple of songs lined up for this week, but then started practising this one below randomly, then the thought struck "oh yeah, everyone said this song was about drugs, but the band always denied it" only to search and see that that was no longer the case! Yay! As I adore this song, not because it's about drugs, but because of the odd, nearly discordant harpsichord/keyboard melody that runs throughout, it's very mesmeric. I just saw as I uploaded that Tootlin' Geoff beat me to it with his wonderful version.

    I've just been informed by my perfectionist musician other half that I left out "the extra bar in the riff, the 7/8 part!" and "Ah here you need to do that part!" - blame the tab I followed which didn't include it! I only realised myself after watching a BEVOMU version myself. D'oh!
