The Completist

A completist is a muso who cannot be without the recorded work of particular musicians.

I used to be guilty of such a sin but the frequent marketing changes of recorded music has now run its course, and the notion is now virtually redundant.

Nevertheless...

Robert Wyatt

If that be nerdy then nerdy I be.

This was recorded one April Fools' Day. I have no idea where it came from. It was just a bit of spontaneous foolishness. Music Recorded circa 2008.


 

Matching Mole

O Caroline

#mostbeautiful #love #song #muso

Cannot think of a more beautiful love song produced by a prog-rock band featuring the unique voice of Robert Wyatt who had a thing about Caroline Coon, as we all did.

Sell Sell Sell

 

Lindsay Anderson employed Alan Price in live performance as a running commentary in his film O Lucky Man as this clip illustrates.

Rolling Stone magazine described the album  as “the Best Film soundtrack ever written.”

Lindsay Anderson was accused of stealing the idea from Jean Luc Godard who was the first to use this device in the film One Plus One in which he employed confusingly the band, and not the magazine, known as The Rolling Stones.

David Bowie kept his awful secret.

But he died on Mrs. Monk’s birthday just so we will never forget.

Cuckoo Spit

This would be a new vimeo music channel where you might find the "music" created by Monks. aka “Cuckoo Spit”
Cuckoo Spit by name, cuckoo spit by nature.

 

 

 

 

This song came about after a weekend in Newcastle where Helen showed us around and we sang Bee Gee songs to amuse ourselves. We teased Helen about her Waitrose reproduction artwork for her new home. and her charming Geordie way of adding an additional syllable to some spoken words, "ear-ers" for example. Helen also had a strange theory that girls with very large ear-ers were Lesbians.

Rebekah Brooks and Helen of Troy were not on my mind when I wrote and recorded this song some time ago, and long before Rebekahgate. Rebekah Brooks has pleaded not guilty to all the charges.

This day this page is born with music that we Monks play a lot to each other and rarely disagree about. Music may well be the secret of an enduring marriage, and certainly not the disorderly keeping of the toothpaste tube. Hope my thesis stands the test of time. We shall see. Watch and listen to this space. Here Be Music. Here be shit in a plastic bag.  Loudon Wainwright.
