Thread Name: Lyr Req: November Wedding (Vin Garbutt)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Vin Garbutt's Wedding Song (?)

I am sure the Bypass Syndrome (Home Roots Music HRCD008) will still be availble.

If you sing the November Wedding at the Doom Gloom and Despondency, I will personaly ensure that you are evicted before the second stanza. However, on the same album are some real posibles: "Dish of Glass" (Anti genetic engineering) "If I Had a Son" (Don't go down the mine song) "The Potash Song" (Don't go down the potash mine song) "Tipperary Girl" (Anti abortion) "Nawa's Song" (Anti Iraqui regime) "The Bloom of the Broom" (lots of dead plants)

In fact appart from the title track (Anti road building), "Page Three Girl" (anti public nudity), wonderful "The November Wedding" and four great tunes, the rest of the album is emminately suitable.

Unfortunately the 'powers that be' at Sidmouth are unlikely to book Vin because of the opinions expressed in many of his songs.

I don't agree with a lot of Vin's opinions myself, but I will defend his right to sing about them.

He is a great performer and I am looking forward to see him at any festival or club that will book him.
