Bill Bailey wont you please come home

Spent yesterday evening within the company of the excellent Bill Bailey. And a very funny man he is too. Highlights included, Easternders, a bangera version of the classic soap theme tune; ‘cousin in red’, a banjo version of the Chris de Burg’s number One, (de Burg featured strongly as a figure of hate) but my particular fave was the techno remix of the News 24 theme. That and the zippery de doo dar song done in the style of Portishead, ahh trip hop, so fondly missed. The DVD is coming out in November, and I’ll think I’ll buy it.

In other news, the Mighty England won 3-0 against the Swiss. In-Ger-Land!

PS. Bill Bailey is famous for being the name of a long lost cowboy, as in, Bill Bailey won’t you please come home
