Subject: BS: MCFAT comes out
From: Red and White Rabbit
Date: 14 Mar 04 - 02:48 AM

Well I dont know what to say I thought the interest at the end of Whitby folk week was just curiosity but last night MCFat finally came out at Raggy's lifeboat fundraiser.

What can I say one minute my ears were being blasted with 'Lion' and 'No Rum and no Pies' and the next the trusty Epiphone was cast aside like some old rag (Sorry Raggy) in favour of what............................. A BANJO!

There he was happily playing away and stating how the Banjo suited his style of playing AND that it had a nice sound! Realising what he had said he asked me to promise not to tell anyone but what could I say - the man needs treatment!

I never realised Limpit was child of Jim............

As for the man playing a banjo......words fail me.........he could be drummed (or bodrhanned) out of a lot of pubs in Sheffield.

the second red and white rabbit posting was from Jim using my name on my computer in my house- if he only played banjo in the closet it wouldnt be too bad but in public - words fail me!!

That could be the reason why Liffey didnt like you too much Jim - shes got taste!!

I have no doubt it will be melodeons next mind me thinks he doth protest too much about bodhrans so having been plucking this weekend he could be aiming for banging next closely followed by squeezing - I'm going to keep my whistles well away!!

Thinking about the old joke about the skunk and banjo-player road-kills - even without the banjo, there would be no skid marks before McFat - only the ones afterwards where the driver stopped before reversing back over him again!

If McFat just likes the playing aspect of the banjo rather than the hideous sound, perhaps he ought to think about trying a Banjola like the one that Leadfingers was playing at the Dog-Day afternoon last Sunday. It's got a 5-string banjo neck grafted onto a mandola body. It provide a solution for people who get addicted to the banjo in the same sort of way that the patch does for smokers, and virtually eliminates all harmful banjo emissions.

What makes you think that Jim needs a kazoo (or any other artificial aid) to REALLY annoy people.
He is, therefor he annoys.

But that's why we all love him. Especially when he gets to the end of a song and picks up that lovely guitar case.

And anyway, surely this whole event is sufficiently tragic to be the source of a ballad.

We've got:-

McDonald
Coming out
The appearance of a BANJO
The Death of an Icon (well he can't be an icon with a banjo)

So howse about lets compose an online, up-to-the-minute traditional ballade.

Maybe to the tune of 'Glencoe' in honour of the only(?) other time that the McDonalds screwed up?

MCFAT asked me to play around - no comments - with the lyrics you had posted so this is a version of the

Rape of Milnsbridge
MCfat/ Geoff The Duck/R&W Rabbit

Oh cruel is the thread that prounounced me dead
and made me to play the banjo.......
and cruel was the player that caused me to sway oh
and made me to play on the banjo..

To keep lifeboats afloat they came far inland,
To raise money this was what Raggy had planned
He wined them and dined them then McDonald did stand
And started to play on the Banjo

Large was the crowd as he played it out loud.
He played it as fast as he could go!
Five were the strings, and now he has wings.
Because they strung him up with the banjo

He arrived at the session with soup in a tin
"The Campbell's is coming" he said with a grin
Then somebody threw a tomato at him....
But that was the fate of MacDonald!

He went to the pub, and found the Socialist Club,
He fished out his very large banjo.
The audience, mate, didn't appreciate -
attacked him with a very large mango

He went to the session with banjo in hand.
He played it all night, and he thought it was grand.
But the night didn't turn out the way he had planned,
'Twas the night that they murdered MacDonald!

He knew he'd been cursed
Thought it couldn't get worse
When they caught him playing on the banjo
But he got it all wrong
For in the very next song
They made him to play on the bodhran

Some died in their beds at the hand of this foe
Some fled in the night and were lost in the snow
Some lived to accuse him who struck the first blow
Yes the Bodhran's now played by MacDonald

Oh cruel is the thread that prounounced me dead
and made me to play the banjo.......
and cruel was the player that caused me to sway oh
and made me to play on the banjo

Red & White Rabbit, what can I say. I am just overwhelmed by this tour de force bravura composition.
Now the whole world can see why you're every drinking man's crumpet.

Who would not want to be third husband-to-be of the intellect that created the finest traditional song to be written since .... since.... well since anyone first wrote a traditional song, ,,,,, in olden times.

You're just fantastic, and you cook a mena sausage if I remember rightly.
