My latest wee vid, done whilst trying out new editing software, as a learning exercise … and a long, slow fukken annoying process it was
I did the music on an old steam-driven prog … vox added on the laptop … rather lo-fi, but that’s the way I like it
After lotsa mistakes and hassles, I give up … this’ll have to do
The next one will be better … as I dumped that software and will start afresh
The words are from poem that I wrote, performed over a bit of music that I also wrote, and played, … they just fitted perfectly together somehow
“Out of the mouths of babes and sucklings” sounds like screen directions for a crap, porn film … but it also has that ring of truth to it … Kids can ask the most naive and simplistic of questions that cut through the bullshit and flim-flam, getting right to the heart of the matter … the real questions which need answering
And this is what FIRST introduced me to work of Johnny Deluxe
A rather pithy and pointed piquant pulchritude of passion poignancy and persuasive poetry
Great poem … great voice … love it!!
And a huge thanx to Meester Mainey, Kilmarnock’s finest, for the introduction
I’m a sucker for a good story … and I’m a sucker for a poem that rhymes
Combine the two with wit, erudition, swirling images and slithering words,
and I’m hooked.
This ticks all those boxes … and more
Mr Johnny Deluxe … a rather fine bit of work!!!
Why is this not more widely known …. !!!!
