had a chance to listen to this one much yet but from the title we gather
it must be a song about one of the pubs in St. Ives.
Sonic: Actually it is a song about the mysterious bond between parent
Shaun: What mysterious bond?
Sonic: You know, like how your parents can always sense what you're up
Shaun: Aha, so when we come home late at night that's how Vile Jelly
knows we've been to the pub!
Sonic: ... errr ..... sort of.
Witts, Lakeman, Knightley??
The fools! Some idiot has
printed the CD cover image back to front!
hearty musical blast against the dissolution of ethnic Englishness by the
twin evils of Amercanisation and Chavi-ness. In a country that now claims
Chicken Tikka Masala as itís favourite national dish, Steve trills in
praise of the humble English potato, parsnip, carrot, etc.
Just don't ask him to play Duelling Pies on his American Banjo .....
Unless you're the sort of person who'd enjoy being rushed to A&E to
have a mandocello surgically extracted from your posterior!

Steve Knightley returns to a familiar theme a mere two or three centuries
after Tall Ships*.
A semi-tongue in cheek song depicting the ransacking of the container
ship the Napoli, which ran aground on the Devon Coast a couple of years
ago causing erstwhile sober and law-abiding citizens to instantly regress
to a bunch of feral savages. Phil and Miranda fiddle and Steve lutes to
salute the Lyme Bay looters on the fiddle at Branscombe!
* That's as in a few centuries after the events depicted in Tall
Ships, not as in it took Knightley 250 or so years to write a sequel to
the song. He's not THAT old!
