    I love puppets!

    I’ve composed scores for 20+ puppet theatre shows from weird and wonderful Avant Garde adult shows to super cute family shows like Julia ‘The Gruffalo’ Donaldson’s take on ‘The Owl and the Pussycat’.

    Each of them was a joy and pushed me to make new and different kinds of music.

    I wanted to share some of that music BUT… I do like a ‘proper’ song me, a ’singer-songwriter-y’ song. I just do. So I took some of the existing compositions and transformed them into new ‘proper’ songs and what belters they are!

    VERY proud to add this to my catalogue - enjoy!

about

Based on a cue that was meant to 'make the audience feel nothing at all' - for a show that didn't happen because of lock down - it seemed only right to sing about the pointlessness of everything. This is now a total Banger.

lyrics

MR TWIST

it is not locked
it is not loaded
words will only spoil

break the spell
steer the soft unknown
into story

here is the fire
resist, resist
do not rise
do not rise up
do not
and the bell tolls
and the wind blows
and the silence is lost
hold still

hang on to the white swan
stillness of the mill pond
don’t let the colours come yet
drunken trumpets and drums yeah
with their glories

here is the fire
resist, resist
do not rise
do not rise up
do not
and the bell tolls
and the wind blows
and the silence is lost
hold still

don't call me twisted I will not respond to twisted
I was beaten out of shape by another mans mistakes
and I missed my time
I surely missed my time
cos we forgot that this was a war
and we let them in and we let them win
and I hate to say that I'm afraid
but I'm afraid to say that this is hate
I know my name
and how I got it
I know my name
and I'm proud of it
