  • at it I m obviously too old to be looking for a glamorous career in music and nor does one appeal to me But the pleasure of playing out live is undeniable it s just bloody great fun even if it s just standing on the street singing your heart out to complete strangers Urchin a fantastic second effort from one of the best artists I ve heard in a

    the outside looking in you find yourself right in the middle of other people s lives even if it s just for a night or so So why risk ridicule at my age Well a couple of reasons apart from the fun factor already mentioned Aye massaging the ego is an obvious one There s something of the show off in most musicians however obscured by neurosis Playing in the background of a band such as I did on bass for all those years with the Runts is a beautiful combination of being in company and not having to talk to anyone all the while floating on a bed of notes that you help weave But to actually front it and put it out involves a bit of risk but worth the returns if you get a good response Well that all applies to doing it at any age But for someone approaching the end of their working life like I am there is another element All the youthful ambitions that so many of us had I reckon we have a certain debt to our younger selves not to waste or at least to test those early aspirations Also you know how depressing it is to read most biographies of musicians the last bit when a good book should just be picking up the action and the drama is nearly always about the slow decline as our heroes go all wobbly and lose their appetite if not their marbles We all lead pretty dull lives must be worth pepping up the last few chapters even if at the risk of falling on our arses I m assuming of course that authors will be falling over themselves to chronicle my fascinating life While on the subject of obligations as well as to our younger selves any song you write should be given a chance There s a general idea of the muse that which the singer poet or whatever accesses a romantic notion perhaps but any song would seem to have a certain life of its own independent of the writer I m sure that some should be put down at birth and there s many a case for a swift mercy killing But you never quite know how good a song is till you sing it out in front of others So I stand at the window of the belfry throwing out the little songs every now and then one stutters into flight and is off over the horizon free at last ok that s the bones of a fairly average life But here are the bits that make me such a lucky fellow and that have enriched my life some of the other musicians in the family brother Tom Dowling recently returned from Bordeaux with his snakeskin cowboy hat and african pyjamas his rheumy eye sees all and nothing bro Huey resident round the corner from me in the old factory at Bladnoch SW Scotland with ace studio equipped

    be a good two hundred years since the last man or woman died who might have remembered even childhood before the Act of Union in 1707 and at least another hundred since a first hand memory of such a person passed away not much to show here but I attach an essay that I ve been writing this year an idea I ve had for a long time and this
