New single: Children of men

Hurry hurry. Buy me new single, produced by badger-haired Tim Palmer from Kent (he can’t help it). Video is here on me website and on you tube. Will put a link below to the youtube page of the excellent video maker Trevor Blackman where the video was born and lives still. It’s vaguely connected to the recent London Riots – in amongst other silliness. Hope you like it. If you can’t afford 70p for the download, let me know and I’ll see if I can rustle up an mp3 – but please bear in mind, the boys do need paying.

Buy it here for now

Don’t eat plastic they said

Of course not, he said

I only things which float in the sea,

I only eat things that fill Albatross bellies,

I only eat what man makes best,

I only eat what never decays,

I only what is clean and pretty…


Don’t eat plastic, they said.


Gotta do something with it, he said,

Crunching the head off his Barbie doll

and Sainsburies’ bag sandwich.


True, they said,

Eat plastic.
