Just a note to let folks know how things is going.

Last month I had a funny sort of month, Rock and Reel finally got round to reviewing my album of 2005 St Peter and John Dillinger (page 91 - just slip in WH Smiths and read it - no need to buy it - theough I did from sheer vanity!)- it got 4 four stars. Not as many as Randy Newman, but more than Rose Kemp. Still I've spent a fortune on her parents cds for Christmas presents!and dvds!


shame of shame! Johnny Depp is making a film called Public Enemies, he's playing Dillinger natch! Although after the job Brad Pitt did on Jesse James (Dillinger's hero), I thought Brad would be a more natural choice also Brad is pudgy like Dillinger, Johnny Depp is willowy . I would love the title track played over the end credits. But those Hollywood pezzo novante dont answer my e-mails - oh! to have Don Corleone as a Godfather! ( make 'im an offer, he CAN'Ta refusea...)


I finally got my Variax guitar sorted out. I can now access Dminor tuning/ DADGAD/ Dmajor/ G (Spanish tuning)/ E tuning and famousflower of Serving men tuning - all at the push of a button!

Its taken four years to sort out. The revelation came when I found out that Line 6 just market the stuff - they don't actually know how it works!

Well anyway!its a good job! cos I'm looking for gigs. In fact I've got a website doing just that.

http://www.bigalwhittle.co.uk/bigalwhittlewillhappilydoyouagig/

All this BNP activity has made me realise - we've got to resist it. And if no one else won't - I will. I intend to have a new song ready for battle soon! No bleeding metaphors - just get in there and trounce the scoundrels!

Now then Merry Christmas to all my friends!

i haver written a simple christmas song on my new myspace page. DADFAD tuning!

Many thanks to Tony Dean for letting me know abit about Myspace and setting up the site!

Okay here's my latest song. Its an anti BNP song.
http://www.bigalwhittle.co.uk/id35.html


No doubt some arsehole will come on the mudcat and say that martin carthy's song about the Levellers is much more eloquent. However I'd say there is a certain immediacy in the current situation(42% of the village next to mine votes BNP) which bloody silly old songs will not step up to the mark with.

In fact there is a certain amount of risk in me goin out an singing this song - wish me luck!

if any of you know of any anti- BNP beanfeats/festivals where I could sing this song. Just get in touch. 01773812626
Given up on the folk scene - not before time!

"martin carthy's song about the Levellers is much more eloquent"

Good song. Come and sing it in my local pub where a small minority of morons still rush to their phones to download and and tell paki jokes when I walk in to show how fantastically racially intolerant they are. Last time when there was 10 of them in they had a chance to hit me or not and decided not to - next time who knows.

Wankers.

Exactly Nick. I'm scared shitless at the thought of where this song is going to take me if its to be heard in the places where it needs to be heard.

Hi, Al - did you ever get a chance to think about that Life & Trial of Palmer recording you were thinking of for The Gallows Ballads Project? We'd still love to hear it!

If I wasn't involved with Jill on the day of the Belvedere gig, I'd be down there for the open mic.

Alas, the windmill is a stern mistress, and she keeps me in thrall...

Good gigs - break several legs.

"yes indeed IO'm still working on it would you like yourself and your website mentiomed in it or would you like just rhe words in the original nonsense?"

I wouldn't presume to advise you on that, Al. My rampant egotism prefers the first option and my sense of decorum the second. I think I'd better leave it up to you...

If you don't like my guitar playing you can walk up and down the quay watching the boats and ships and eat a bag of chips. friday11th. 8.30 til 11.30pm. On nice days theres a good view of brownsea Island - home of the red squirrel, and where Baden Powell started the boy scout movement.

must do that one - oh we're riding along on the crest of a wave, and the sun is in the sky!
