The above song I recorded using two tapes and a double cassette recorder, back in the early '90s. I should re-do it digitally, now I've got Cubase... But there's something oddly quaint and sweet about this lo-fi recording (she said to herself). Oh, just recalled something funny - I didn't even have a friggin' tambourine at the time - I literally stuck two paper plates together, and sewed a bunch of little bells around the perimeter!

COVID Policy: I live with immune-compromised family members, so I am not meeting anyone IRL any time soon. How do people do jams together online, btw - what about latency?

Also, just to make sure we're all on the same page...

Yeah, if you hate the SJWs, you're missin' out. Sour Jelly Worms are deeelicious...

OMG!!! This site *still* refuses to render emojis?? Unbelievable.

"Do you like Huey Lewis & the News?" Just kidding! They're alright, but... I was just watching some American Psycho-analysis vids on YouTube, sorry.

Do you love BRITISH & Irish music - '60s to '90s? (East-Asian femme reverse-appropriating UK culture, haha!) I'm looking for people to do covers / tributes with of cool social-justice-oriented tunes (prefer not to do originals, sorry). Hopefully play some live shows if we get good enough. I would LOVE to play benefit shows to help fundraise for important social justice causes! <3

Ideas for the kind of material I'd love to cover: (off the top of my porkpie hat)

The Specials (R.I.P. Terry Hall - I <3 you!!!)
- 'Concrete Jungle'
- 'Ghost Town'
- 'If You Have A Racist Friend'
I need to catch it up with their more recent stuff, like 'The Ten Commandments' they did with Saffiyah Khan!

The Clash (I know... I hate Joe Strummer as a person, knowing what I know now, but he used to be my hero. Still love Mick!)
- 'Complete Control'
- 'Gates of the West'
- 'London Calling'
- 'Revolution Rock'
- 'Groovy Times'
- 'Know Your Rights' (allll 3 of'em!)

The Jam
- 'Strange Town'
- 'A Town Called Malice'
- 'Going Underground' (what an anthem, Weller should've done more like this)

X-Ray Spex
- 'Oh Bondage Up Yours!'

Don't wanna do The Smiths anymore because of Mozza morphing into a right-wing Side-Show Bobba. Still love Marr, though (guitar hero)!

How 'bout some Housemartins, Beautiful South, Billy Bragg, fu*k yeah! Sinead O'Connor. Even U2 had their moments, despite being stadium rock. Grace Petrie is my latest LGBTQ+ folk rock heroine. Lady Parts - best new British all-Muslim grrrl power punk band! (Can't cover 'em though, as I ain't Muslim meself.)

Pet Shop Boys
- 'It's Alright' (I know, it's a cover, but I like!)

Billy Bragg (feat. Kirsty McColl and Johnny Marr!)
- 'Sexuality'

Fun Boy Three
- 'Farmyard Connection'

The Beautiful South
- 'Blackpool'

Sinead O'Connor
- 'Black Boys On Mopeds'

Is this the 'in' place to be...
What am I doing here...
Watching the girls go by...
Spending money on?? (One, Two!!)
