1001 - Bonfire Night Rag/The Singing Magpies
Who's this strange and lonesome man, wending his way down to the House of Lords for Bonfire Night? Why, it's old Guido Fawkes, but not the way you know him. He's back and he's raring to see the fireworks, but will he manage it or will his friends sell him short once again? Hear all about it in 'Bonfire Night Rag', the latest hit by David McTea, the singin' stummin' sensation hailing like a thundercloud from downtown North London. Flip it over for a b-side about two down-and-out magpies trying to make their way busking down Camden town. Did you ever hear of a stranger thing? "Here's two birds you just can't miss!" In both songs he accompanies himself on his guitar, played like you haven't heard since the '40s. Get down! Ask your vendor for a copy before it's too late.
