    Heh. It looks much fancier than that though. It involves mash and corned beef, and actually looks a bit like a variant of corned beef hash. I'm kind of tempted to try it actually, except that it says...

    Look what the postie just brought me - thanks Bob! Who would have thought that you could make a doorstop out of a brick! Now I'm off to make some spudwiches for lunch.

    I wanted to try a spring song, but the ones I have in mind (One by Tom Waits, one by Tom Lehrer) proved a bit tricky. So here's another song about workers, again from Billy Bragg.

    Here's a Lindisfarne song about workers. It tells the story of the Jarrow March in 1936, led by David Riley, in which unemployed former workers marched to London to protest against the levels of...

    Had to get this one in. It's a Half Man Half Biscuit song about the things you might find down country lanes, if you're not careful. Going down there for plum tomatoes is not a good idea!

    Well you kept asking nicely and I didn't want to be rude! Thanks for a great theme. Even if we can't go anywhere, at least we can explore in song!

    The scary thing about this theme is that we're probably all going to horrify each other with the artists we don't like. I promise not to be horrified by yours if you're not horrified by mine :).

    Following the "first concert" discussion. This was 50p well spent. You'll probably see why we had trouble explaining the Wurzels:

    If there's a 1972 Blue Peter album at stake I'm definitely in! Great theme! I could use a new doorstop, my Roomba keeps hiding the ones I've got.

    It turns out I really like doing Half Man Half Biscuit songs. Who would have guessed! I was practising this one for tonight's open mic session but then I thought it deserved some overdubs. It's a...
