about

I am going to try to create, record and upload a new track every day for a year, starting April 2013.

My plan is to:
1) Produce a variety of material – alternative, ambient, pop, rock, reggae, acoustic, soundtrack, experimental;
2) Use a range of different creative techniques;
3) Be original;
4) Communicate ideas and feelings;
5) Surprise myself;
6) Have fun.

After the year has passed I will stop making music The music I have made will remain, but I will be elsewhere.

I hope you enjoy the sounds...

about

bushytunes Christmas Island

Once upon a time there was a crazy idea: to create, record and upload a musical track every day for a year. And the idea floated round and round the planet, looking for a place to call home. After a long time of searching and wishing and watching, the idea chose to make a nest in the brain of a bushy fellow, coming to his aid and guiding him out of the doldrums, back to a magical pathway... ... more

Track Name: it’s a very fine job
I really love getting up for work
I’m a very good worker
I would never ever, ever, ever, ever shirk
My employers are pleased with me
They are as pleased as pleased can be

I can’t tell you too much about my job
Or else I’ll have to
Come round your house and kill you
I can’t tell you very much about my job
Coz I would have to come round and kill you

I’ve got a job, it’s a very fine job
And I am a very fine fellow
I’ve got a job, it’s a very fine job
And my company vehicle is yellow

My job is a very good job
Did I mention my name is Bob?
I do lots of things for the government
I do what I do and I go where I’m sent

I’ve got a job, it’s a very fine job
And I am a very fine fellow
I’ve got a job, it’s a very fine job
And my company vehicle is yellow

Bet you’re trying to guess what I do?
While you do that, I’ll play the guitar
Like U2 do

I can’t tell you too much about my job
Or else I’ll have to
Come round your house and kill you
I can’t tell you very much about my job
Coz I would have to come round and kill you

I’ve got a job, it’s a very fine job
And I am a very fine fellow
I’ve got a job, it’s a very fine job
And my company vehicle is yellow

I’ve got a job, it’s a very fine job...

Track Name: scandinavian clanky
Yes, it’s the same old story

It’s Scandinavian, it’s Scandinavian
It’s Scandinavian, it’s Scandinavian Clanky
It’s Scandinavian, it’s Scandinavian
It’s Scandinavian, it’s Scandinavian Clanky

Boy meets girl and its love
And it’s beautiful
Then, things change
The girl wants ‘space’
The boy doesn’t understand
He doesn’t understand

It’s Scandinavian, it’s Scandinavian
It’s Scandinavian, it’s Scandinavian Clanky
It’s Scandinavian, it’s Scandinavian
It’s Scandinavian, it’s Scandinavian Clanky

“What, what, what, what
What, what, what, went wrong?”
He asks himself over and over again
All he can think of was
She was never overly keen
On his old, brown wooden furniture
And his wallpaper and his patterned carpets
So: get rid of that stuff
Get new stuff from Scandinavia

It’s Scandinavian, it’s Scandinavian
It’s Scandinavian, it’s Scandinavian Clanky
It’s Scandinavian, it’s Scandinavian
It’s Scandinavian, it’s Scandinavian Clanky

New furniture is not the answer
If you have a relationship problem
No no no

It’s Scandinavian, it’s Scandinavian
It’s Scandinavian, it’s Scandinavian Clanky
It’s Scandinavian, it’s Scandinavian
It’s Scandinavian, it’s Scandinavian Clanky

It’s Scandinavian...

You’re running away from yourself
Of course she didn’t come back
Now she’s married to a man named Sven
Guess where he lives?
Yes, he Fishes off the coast of Scandinavia

It’s Scandinavian, it’s Scandinavian
It’s Scandinavian, it’s Scandinavian Clanky
It’s Scandinavian, it’s Scandinavian
It’s Scandinavian, it’s Scandinavian Clanky

Track Name: measuring the wind (just like god taught me)
Standing still on this hill
I’m very quiet
I’m doing important work
For my boss
It’s very important

I’m measuring the wind
Just like God taught me
I’m measuring the wind
Just like God taught me

It’s not so difficult
I didn’t have training
I just receive commands
My boss tells me what to do
With every second

I’m measuring the wind
Just like God taught me
I’m measuring the wind
Just like God taught me

I don’t get money; I don’t need money
I’m just doing what I have to do
Sometimes the birds land on me
But that’s ok
Because they work for him too

I’m measuring the wind
Just like God taught me
I’m measuring the wind
Just like God taught me

Track Name: lost dog reward
Lost dog reward. Lost dog reward
Lost dog reward. Lost dog reward

I went walking with our dog Towser
He chased a squirrel and away he fled
I was frightened, I couldn’t find him
I went home, told mum, she hit my head

Lost dog reward. Lost dog reward
Lost dog reward. Lost dog reward

Mum was livid, she said I’d ruined her life
And how woman was a dog’s best friend
She hit me some more, hit me to the floor
Locked me in the cupboard
For the whole weekend

Breakfast on Monday she gave me dog food
She made me eat it and go ”Ruff! Ruff!”
Though my tummy hurt
And she threatened to me
I decided I’d had enough

Lost dog reward. Lost dog reward
Lost dog reward. Lost dog reward

I was crying and I told teacher
And teacher must have told someone else
When I got home from school
There were lots of people with
Clipboards and uniforms in our house

They took Mum away, said she had to pay
I never saw my mum again
I live with Grandad and Gran
And their dog Towser
Who we’ve renamed Ben

I’m the King of Ba-ding
And I’m doing my thing
I’m the King of Ba-ding
Yeah, I’m doing my thing

But this kind of thing would be
Really, really, really hard
For the likes of you
Coz you ain’t the king

It really ain’t hard for me to do...

I’m the King of Ba-ding
I’m the King of Ba-ding
And I’m doing my thing
I’m the King of Ba-ding
Yeah, I’m doing my thing

You wanna disagree?
You wanna disagree?
With the king? That’s me

If you wanna disagree
You’re gonna end up dead

Coz I’m the King of Ba-ding
I’m the King of Ba-ding
And I’m doing my thing
I’m the King of Ba-ding
Yeah, I’m doing my thing
I’m just being the king

It really ain’t hard for me to do
But this kind of thing would be
Really, really, really hard
For the likes of you
Coz you ain’t the king
You’re just a peasant
But I’m the King

Track Name: don’t come crying to me
Don’t come crying to me
If you feel broken-hearted
Don’t come crying to me
If they want to finish what you started
I always tell you
Please don’t interfere, dear
Don’t come crying to me
You’ll get no sympathy from me

Don’t come crying to me
You know just what you did so
Don’t come crying to me
Look at your face
In your hands, you’ve hid it
I’m not impressed
By your crocodile tears, dear
Don’t come crying to me
You’ll get no sympathy from me

Don’t come crying to me
Don’t come crying
Don’t come crying
Don’t come crying to me
Don’t come crying
Don’t come crying

Don’t come crying to me
And telling me all these things, no

I’m just a human
Who’s tired of your games, so

You’ll get no sympathy from me

Don’t come crying to me...

Track Name: happy man
Happy, happy, happy man
Happy, happy, happy man
Happy, happy, happy man
Happy, happy man

Look at me, I’m a happy man
Out for a drive in my little red car
Look at me, I’m a happy man
Driving in my little red car

Look at me in my Batman socks
Batman socks in my little red car
Look at me, I’m a happy man
Batman socks, little red car

Quite content with what I’ve got
I’m just doing fine
You can keep the crazy modern world
And you can stick it
Where the sun don’t shine

Happy, happy, happy man...

Little flask and sandwiches
Batman socks and my little red car
Driving with my sandwiches
And my flask in my Batman socks

Quite content with what I’ve got
I’m just doing fine
You can keep the crazy modern world
And you can stick it
Where the sun don’t shine
Happy, happy, happy man...

Happy, happy, happy man...

Look at me in my Batman socks
Got my flask and my sandwiches
Quite content in my little car
Driving in my little red car

Quite content with what I’ve got
I’m just doing fine
You can keep the crazy modern world
And you can stick it
Where the sun don’t shine

Happy, happy, happy man...

Happy, happy, man...

Track Name: changing weather
This changing weather
Gets me down
This changing weather
It seals the town
I should have told you why, my friend
I should have told you why, my friend

One for sorrow, two for joy
Beg and borrow
For the Reptile Boy
I should have told you why, my friend
I should have told you why, my friend

When you were washed
Clean of your sin
Did you think of me?
When you were crushed
Like a cold tear-stain
Did you lose control?

This changing weather
These pools of joy
We change together
The Reptile Boy
Is feasting on the scraps you gave
Is feasting on the scraps you gave

When you were washed
Clean of your sin
Did you think of me?
When you were crushed
Like a cold tear-stain
Did you lose control?

This changing weather
Too much for me
This changing weather
Too much for me
I should have told you why, my friend
I should have told you why, my friend

The changing weather
A lack of joy
Beg and borrow
For the Reptile Boy

Track Name: uncle queen
I was talking to the Queen
She was in disguise
Turns out she’s my uncle
What a big surprise

Uncle Queen, he lives on Mars
He has to commute
He comes here in a spaceship
With a parachute

Uncle Queen, Uncle Queen
Uncle Queen, Uncle Queen

I remember childhood days
Uncle Queen was odd
Said he had a palace
Given him by god

And he had some little dogs
And an army too
And loads and loads of gold things
Draped around the loo

Uncle Queen, Uncle Queen
Uncle Queen, Uncle Queen

Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha…

Uncle ruled the commonwealth
And he met James Bond
But James Bond isn’t real though
So maybe I’ve been conned

Uncle Queen, Uncle Queen
Uncle Queen, Uncle Queen

Uncle Queen…

(Confused notions of grandeur rant)

Uncle Queen, Uncle Queen
Uncle Queen, Uncle Queen

Uncle Queen…
Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha…

Uncle Queen
Track Name: tiny footprints in the snow
Tiny footprints in the snow
In the snow, in the snow
Could be a fox or it
Could be a mole
A long-legged mole in the snow

Could be a mole
A long-legged mole
A supermodel mole
A mole supermodel
Making tracks there
In the snow
In the snow

Time for me to go back to bed
Time for me to go clear my head

Tiny footprints in the snow
In the snow, in the snow
What has made them?
I don’t know
I don’t know

Could be a mink
But a mink is a stole
Can you steal, steal a stole?
If already it is stole
Could be a mink

Time for me to go back to bed
Time for me to go clear my head
Time for me to go say my prayers
Time for me to go say my prayers

Tiny footprints in the snow
In the snow, in the snow
If he hollers let him go
Let him go

I’m not allowed out in the snow
I find things, I find things
Tiny footprints in the snow
In the snow

Track Name: you’re talking utter bollocks
Evening. Yes, it is getting parky
Not too bad. And yourself? Good
I’ll have a pint of my usual, the Best
What’s that? King Kong, he was a real ape?
Died before they could film him?
I’ve never heard that before, I must confess

Bollocks
You’re talking utter bollocks
That’s what you do
Whenever you come down the pub
Bollock
You’re talking utter bollocks
Is it the drink or
Is your brain in back to front or what?

Yoda is a real person?
He lives up north with Elvis Presley?
They run a funeral home for people’s pets?
Where do you get your information?
Friends in high places, thought so
And I bet you go on the internet...

Bollocks
You’re talking utter bollocks
That’s what you do
Whenever you come down the pub
Bollocks
You’re talking utter bollocks
Is it the drink or
Is your brain in back to front or what?

(pretty echoey git solo)

Are you saying the Earth is
Only six thousand years old?
Scientists would disagree but
Don’t take that too hard
And are you still telling people
You’re the real Queen of England
And you have to commute
Because you live on Mars?

Bollocks
You’re talking utter bollocks
That’s what you do
Whenever you come down the pub
Bollocks
You’re talking utter bollocks
Is it the drink or
Is your brain in back to front or what?

Bollocks
You’re talking utter bollocks
That’s what you do
Whenever you come down the pub
Bollocks
You’re talking utter bollocks
Is it the drink or
Is your brain in back to front or what?
