Hadrians Union Halloween and English Eccentric Video

A great couple of gigs over the weekend on home turf.

On Friday night we played to a sold out club for the fist time ever and then on Saturday we played a packed out Howard Arms Hotel in Brampton Cumbria.

We are having so much fun getting people dancing and all of a sudden singing along. This is a  new sensation and one which I am rather enjoying. Being a Rocker who came to the Folk world via the back door (ooh er Frankie goes to Dollywood) and somewhat of an English Eccentric wearing a costume for all hallows eve wasn’t that much of a stretch for me.

I can’t wait to get back to rehersals to work on some new material that is in the pipeline.

Oooh and we have an idea for a music video – English Eccentric

OK will you have a little listen to this – and here are the words, all you need to do is take a video of yourselves singing to the song and post it to us at hadriansunion@hotmail.co.uk and then we will put it all together and release it for Xmess. Deadline is December 1st

English Eccentric – S. Simpson

I like tea in the morning and marmite on toast

Crumpets and teacakes make me a fine host

We throw the best soirees with food served on sticks

One more Bellini just might make me sick

 

You’ve requested our presence at 7 for drinks

On the lawn by the duck pond but the company stinks

You’ve got rotter’s and bounders and cads and the like

If I could back pedal

I’d get on my bike

 

I’m an English Eccentric

I’m terribly nice

I like gin with my tonic and oodles of ice

I might be fond of a beer or two

Of the ginger variety

I’ve had a few

 

I’ve a stiff upper lip is often quite stiff

I’ve a lisp sucking lemons

But don’t take the pith

Boaters and bow ties with cricket I’m bats

I make friends with mices and multiple cats

 

I’m an English Eccentric

I’m terribly nice

I like gin with my tonic and oodles of ice

I might be fond of a beer or two

Of the ginger variety

I’ve had a few

 

My hobbies are shooting and stuffing wild birds

But the ladies of Lemington think I am absurd

I’d be inclined to agree with the sort who thought I might mumble a witty retort

But the fact is my dear that I’m quite ridiculous

And this English eccentric is just quite splendiferous

 

I’m an English Eccentric

I’m terribly nice

I like gin with my tonic and oodles of ice

I might be fond of a beer or two

Of the ginger variety

I’ve had a few.
