If it’s politically incorrect and musical, I’m interested
04 April 2010
These days, I awake thinking of the strangest things: sheikhs, fat women, primitive men, sad old bastards with guitars.
In less than two weeks’ time, on Sunday 18th April, I return to the King’s Head Theatre, Islington, in the company of the finger-picking guitarist Derek Hewitson and the funny, brilliant Victoria Hart. Our show Taboo-Be-Do! celebrates the best (and worst) trouble-making, politically incorrect songs of the past 100 years. Our launch shows sold out and now we’re back to break the taste barrier once more.
The problem with this project is that there’s no end of material. Since our last gig, we’ve added songs on a range of unmentionable subjects and I’m now writing a rather moving little song about global warming.
