JUKEBOX

THANK U


XMAS AT DA'HOOD

A 100hr working week was (thankfully) interrupted by the most 'festive' day of the year. This is how the hours after 'Dad's Army' re-runs were spent.

An Empty Pub?
Mother? Behind the bar?

Ready, Steady, Cookery!

Tuck in Dad!

Not too shabby. The rest of the day was spent washing up and cleaning. And trying to convince Dad that 'Declare Independance' is brilliant. Unsuccessfully.

'1ST OF THE 1ST' DOWNLOAD





OLO WORMS - '1ST OF THE 1ST'
(click the arrow to stream or right click to download)

What do we have here then? a new OLO Worms song? Yes that's correct! It's called '1st Of The 1st' and was made for 'Shepherd's Deelite 2' a Christmas compilation featuring Bristol artists put together by You & The Atom Bomb. Here's the website page for it where you can download all the songs. We were on last year's cd as well..click HERE to have a look at that and the launch party.

The 3 images above are the artwork for the song. Do what you want with it..print it, frame it, ignore it!

The song of course isn't at all Christmasy, it's about the best day of the year..January 1st and starting afresh which is what we hope to do (more on that later). It's also about Gok Wan, drain pipe jeans, herding animals/trendy kids, losing weight and wanting to look good naked on day 1.

We hope you dig it. Next time we'll clock/crash in under 2mins!
