Lyric For The Day - This Is War by Dustin Kensrue

UP/DOWN LOADS For Christmas

Not Christmas 

Today, three mighty tunes from good friends... from the indie album This Is Not Christmas

IAIN ARCHER Little Drummer Boy

Archer 1 

You might have come across Iain Archer as part of the super group Tired Pony this year. Well this one will give you a great tune for the Christmas playlist and a need to explore the consistent quality of the Bangor boy’s back catalogue.  This is an acoustic treat from Archer and his lovely wife with a voice and musical talent of her own, Miriam Kaufmann. Recorded in the Black Forest in Germany it was a pointer to the brilliant album To The Pine Roots that Archer would release awhile later. The seeming simplicity but agile ability of the playing and the stunning harmonies these young lovers conjure makes this a snowy night gem.

AMAZING PILOTS – White Christmas

Amazing pilots 

This old Bing song needs an update and though a few have tried no one has given it the twenty first authenticity of the Wilkinson boys from Portrush who are the most Amazing Pilots. Their alternative country arrangement gives it a little lilt that is as intoxicating as brandy liqueur on a cold dark December night.

DAVID FORD & DUKE SPECIAL - Of Whoredom and Falconry

Duke and Ford 

This is a treat of a collaboration between two of our more purposeful songwriters. David sees the lights of Lewes and Duke hears the bells of Belfast in the weirdest title of any song that ever should be on your Christmas Day playlist. The title is a mystery much like the music of these two powerful artists. Not village idiots but eccentric jesters with imaginative intent and totally lovable!
