    A ivor Culter song... with a secret morse code message I like this version of Little Black Buzzer
    and if you want to learn the morse code chorus then Karine Plowart will teach you how

    I have always loved Charley's "Tinfoil Hat" image (especially the ones he's put on Laurel & Hardy) and of course I love his accent too.
    So, when I saw the theme this week I was inspired to write this little tale about one of his fellow tinfoil hat wearers whose friends didn't understand and the consequences thereof...

    I hope you enjoy this little rocker:

    Here’s the song I played at Saturday’s Zoom session, with added synth bass, strings, vocal harmonies and tin foil hat!

    Happy Christmas to all you lovely Seasonistas!

    Thanks all so much for your wonderful music so far this week! Just a little reminder that for the duration of Christmas Day there is NO SONG LIMIT - in fact I will extend that gift to the end of Season 462! My gift to you all! I hope that wherever you are and whatever you do it is a lot of fun and filled with love!

    Got a song idea this morning, and went to the computer to work on it, only to find it had chosen Christmas to die on me. I managed to back some stuff up, and for the last 4 hours it’s been in a repeating loop of checking the hard drive for errors.

    So if anyone has a use at this late hour for my Christmas lyric of “rebel without a Claus”, you’re welcome to it.

    sorry to hear about that, how frustrating! we have two full posting days left of the season, is there no chance you'll get your computer up and running in time to get a vid done? (perhaps i'm giving away the fact i have no idea just how long that process might take!!!) could you mebbe do a vid on your phone??? i'm in super grumpy mode at the moment - a tier 4 christmas, and last minute lockdown, does that to a gal! - and i'm guessing from your song title, that it's jokey? i dunno if i have it in me to do a funny song, but i'd totally be up for seeing the lyrics and seeing if i could rouse myself up out of my slough of not very festive despond and do something with it... especially if it's infinitely more miserable than i'm expecting, and therefore right up my sad street!

    in the meantime here is another cover of one of charley's wonderful original songs, i've mangled it a bit, as i kept thinking the lyrics had a haunting hawkwind-y feel to them, so i hope he will forgive me for bending his song into a wannabe hawkwind-y shape for my cover!

    People who resist colonialism, slavery, imperialism, and fascism are real rebels.

    Phil Ochs captured some of that rebellious spirit in this classic...



    A merry, safe, and healthy Xmas to you all <3
