Default Greetings..ITS TIME FOLKS...UBX FACTOR..LOONIES GOT TALENT

Hi folks...OK....for those of you that bought the limited edition single 'Dance till the morning light' you will have noticed there is a version of the song called ' PA version ' that means KARAOKE version btw ! I think you know where this is going using todays simple computer and camera technology you know how simple it would be to record your own voices singing the Maxi Priest part of the song and loading it up onto YOUTUBE..just imagine the 'Monkey Trio' doing it...OLDBOI our house crooner..I have heard most of you singing along at our gigs..so now its your turn (if you so wish) award winning stuff I think you will agree..I know there are loads of great singers amongst you.....so...why not have a go , Youtube is full of people lipsyncing to tracks in front of their computers BUT i would love to see some actual performance..disguises are acceptable if you are shy , masks and makeup would not be frowned upon Aaron Otang in his moms hi heels and bra would be disturbing but something I think we would all enjoy.. .....I will in turn get a groovy prize together..dont know what yet , I have some idea's, it could be a competition judged by you guys , you decide who wins..if you decide that this is an awful idea thats OK as well.....So..... get yer tonsils in order...do re mi fa so la ti do..etc etc ...BT

PS...I suppose if you dont want to appear on camera , a recording would be good...MP3 that we could listen to....with a photograph...???

they sold out of the CD in the shop Brian - i think some more are on order though.... just waiting... like the idea of a sing-song. Though i think you've lifted the lid off Pandora's Box asking the Monkies to participate

You dont have to be a 'great singer' its all about interpretation remember...

ps..its perfectly acceptable to do it after the pub with all your mates....a little 'dutch' courage may help...talking of which I do hope some of our dutch friends will take part as well....BT

And for good will I'll see if she can throw in her 'pubsinger version' of Lost and Found.....she just loves the Astro part and sings it in true Vic Reeves pub singer stylee !
