Here's an exceptionally silly song about a minor on-the-road escapade from many years ago.
On a night off at a hotel somewhere in Germany, circa the mid 90s, my friend and colleague, the esteemed bass player and wit Mick Hawksworth mentioned to me that it was really funny to turn your TV upside down. Everything was funny - especially football - hilarious.
So, having nothing better to do for the evening, we duly turned the set in our hotel room upside down. And there was football and it was funny.. (helped along by various beverages).
The only problem came the next day when we returned the set to its normal orientation and found that we'd completely messed up the colour guns, and nothing was working properly. Oops.
I'm ashamed to say we slunk out of there without owning up.
So a very minor event in the annals of rock'n'roll.. hardly a Rolls Royce in the swimming pool. Still, worthy perhaps of a little jazzy shuffle and some nutcase guitar. I hope you enjoy it. Recorded by Mick Clarke at Rockfold Studio, Surrey 2023
