Do you recognise this picture? Oh Santa! You're not a cowboy!
Before we go getting all Christmassy, let's first wander a little down memory lane. I've been enchanted once again by the magic that is "Outlaw". You may remember the second song on the Wanted EP I produced with El Pancho. It's a favourite of mine. I love the story it tells. The following Sin-Cityesque artwork was inspired by some of the lyrics.
"Hey Gringo! They say you killed a man..."
"Hope, has now departed..."
|"For the Apache, the sun is a symbol of hope..."|
Ha ha! What a cheery way to celebrate the onslaught of Christmas! I wouldn't be surprised if this last picture doesn't become an underground Christmas card smash hit!
This is Outlaw... the sub-version. This isn't what I played on the EP; I've adapted it so that I can play it on a single guitar. I even had a go at singing the choruses in Italian. I am sooo sorry El Pancho if the words make no sense at all. And it's not much of a video. I had to lean in close to the mic for the verses and as a result, you can't see much of anything really. Oh well!
"It wasn't until I had been properly enlightened in the occult arts by the mystic Cheemuzwa Indians that I had reached my true potential..."
This could have been my story!
Ha ha! This made me chuckle. Put some pants on Dr Manhattan!
Finally! Here's this year's Christmas song for you. It's a bit rough and ready. I didn't have time to finesse it. As the name suggests... it's a lullaby. You have one acoustic guitar, one sharkfin ukulele, one bass, and me crooning. Merry Christmas!
