Blog: Yes, The Telegraph, that is CORRECT

< previous next >
I am indebted to Mr D Haldane for pointing out to me THIS article in The Telegraph about how the humble UKELELE is a MUCH better choice for first instrument than the recorder, especially for the CHILDREN, for VARIOUS reasons.

It is EERILY SIMILAR to THIS article about how the humble UKELELE is a MUCH better choice for first instrument than the recorder, especially for the CHILDREN, for VARIOUS reasons - including several NOT mentioned in the previous article.

Does this mean we are SETTING THE AGENDA for BLUE SKY THINKING in EDUCATION now? Hey, it is a responsibility i am happy to take on, but HEY! The Media! At least give us a LINK eh?

In other news - YIPE! Eighteen months down the line and i STILL haven't written that song - to WORK!

Comments:

curiously, whenever someone mentions ukulele i don't think of Mr Formby, but rather of Another Man's Laundry. The two things are now intricately entwined in my memory. I wouldn't mind, but i'm not even sure if it's a ukulele that you're playing on that one...

ALARMINGLY there is NO ukelele at ALL on ANY of our recorded output, apart from that secret track at the end of the album!

THIS MUST BE CORRECTED!

Billy Jones is Dead? i really need to fine-tune the instrument spotting part of my brain...

thanks for clearing that up though. now i have to begin the arduous process of unlinking uke and cheating vegetarians' freezers, unless you fancy recording a special ukulele version of the song!
