This reworked version of Ewan MacColl’s “Shoals Of Herring” is based on research during my Archive Trails residency at the School Of Scottish Studies and relocates the narrator from Great Yarmouth to the East Neuk of Fife. Recorded live in the wonderful acoustics of the old Icehouse at Helmsdale.
Found this via the ever-excellent @cowsarejustfood. It’s a free download. Get on that shit.
Blood and guts in high school
This is all I know
Parents teachers boyfriends
All have got to go
Some folks like trains,
some folks like ships,
I like the way you move you hips
All I want is a taste of your lips,
All I want is a taste of your lips.
