Lenny Beige was asked to sing on this festive ditty for charity by The Screaming Jacksons
A Merry Lenny Christmas - featuring the legendary larynx of Mr Lenny Beige!

It is raising money for Teenage Cancer Trust and the premise is simple - every time you listen to the song, every penny made from every stream and download goes to the charity. That’s it!

And if you want to donate more than just a listen you can do that here… justgiving.com/crowdfunding/th

Happy Christmas everyone!

Podcast Recommendation :
Anthropocene Reviewed - really loving this. Its well written, well researched and John Green is easy on the ear.

Tune of the Day :

'Romeo is Bleeding' by Tom Waits

Waits is an undisputed master of the written word and whilst his spoken word jazz infused creations can almost verge on the pastiche, the brilliance of the lyrics are evocative and laser sharp.
It's taken from the magnificent Blue Valentine LP from 1978. It is inspired by real events about the shooting of a Mexican gang leader in Los Angeles.

This is a liver version from Austin in 1978

Follow this man @Pugwash - the last link didn't work.
He's a quality gent

@Pugwash is here. He’s talented, rude, fucking funny and I demand you follow him!

This is the Christmas song I have co written with Guy Chambers and Trickster......this is the sweary version and MUCH better than the other 'Praise Be Its Christmas' version.
All for a good cause if bought through the usual channels. Have a look and give it a share......

I've just been stopped by a copper - he gave me the verdigris.

Tune of the Day

'Foxy Lady' by Jimi Hendrix

Because he'd have been 80 years old today I had to feature one of the great man's tracks and of course LIVE. There is so much to unpack about this performance - particularly the entire lo-fi village fete atmosphere in Maui. The song itself either inspired by his girlfriend. Lithofayne "Faye" Pridgon and or the pet kitten and or the poodle he gifted to her, both named Foxy

"So, it's like Twitter but it's not Twitter, everyone is really nice to each other and it's toots not tweets, boosts not retweets, and faves not likes and you choose a server at the start, which some people call an instance – don't know why, it's not important – but you can move servers really easily, and you write a good bio, hashtag your toots and always add Alt Text to images, and so I'm on there and we should, you know, connect so you can boost my toots... what's your name again?"
