he has returned me to the original.

'Paleolithic' leer

well I never !

Jake's website has a comprehensive lyric library which has enhanced my appreciation of the man's command of language

And all thanks to an evening listening to John Watterson
aka Fake Thackray



must mention
Malcolm Jeffrey

recommend the youtube tribute prog

Breezy: Just loved what Jake Thackray (spelling correct this time!) did with Georges Brassens' "Le Gorille" when he translated it (the sentiment, if not exactly a literal translation!) into "Brother Gorilla".

When a name appears on here that one doesn't know, as michaelr claims never to have heard of Jake Thackray, why not just, first off, google the name, check wikipedia etc, before claiming ignorance with an odd sort of almost proud tone, or asking helplessly for a link to be provided?

Here for a start is a link to wikipedia on Thackray ~~

Having watched both of them perform live, I have to say that Fake is one up on Jake - he smiles more!

I dont think Jake evr got across the pond , so its not surprising Michael does not know him ! There ARE some You Tubes of the original !

What has smiling got to do with it?

he was a nervous performer

J T's comments on how us post war brits were brainwashed by pop american 'musical' culture which has had in some ways a cancerous effect on creative British culture

Thankfully there was a Woody Guthrie as american's saving grace

rather like soaps contribution to dramatic art

still guesting

Before entering inane comments maybe take time to watch the tribute prog

Jake may not have crossed the Pond in person, but his music certainly did.

Back about 1983, I first heard "Isabel Makes Love On National Monuments" on CBC Radio, on a show hosted by Max Ferguson (may he rest in peace). Max also frequently programmed "My Dog Ulysees" and "Lah Di Dah", but it was "Isabel" that left me helpless over the sink while doing the dishes -- I couldn't believe my ears.

Despite its almost complete conversion to Toronto-style hipsterism, CBC still occasionally surprises me with a wee dose of Jake. There is hope.

Thanks for the links. Funny stuff!

When I post here, I generally try to make clear what I'm talking about. Breezy's posts appear to do the opposite, and I find that annoying. Why should I have to enlist Google to understand what he's saying, when he could just as well write plain English?

Crptic crossword clue posts might make sense in twitter, where space is short. But on Mudcat its more common, and politer, to use sentences that provide enough information to allow people to understand what we are on about. It doesn't take significantly longer to write, and it can a lot of time when reading.
