Spiny Porcupine


I write the lyrics to the songs in Souvenir Programme, and the amazing Susannah Pearse writes the music. Unfortunately, both of us prefer to go second - that is, I like writing to existing music, and she likes setting existing words. So, when she wins, I often write the lyrics to the tune of an existing song, without telling Sue which one. Then, once I hear her music, I rewrite the lyrics to fit them better. So, for instance, 'Captain Dinosaur' started out life to the tune of 'Mine Eyes Have Seen The Glory of the Coming of The Lord'... and 'Spiny Porcupine' was originally written to Jake Thackray's 'Sister Josephine'.

We're on tour! I know you know this by now, but just in case. We've done three dates so far, we're having a fantastic time... and we still have twenty-three to go. Come and see us! Dates and ticket links here.

Oh noooo your video has made the song even more adorably tragic (or tragically adorable) ...

I was scrolling the internet like every day, there I found this article which is related to my interest. The way you covered the knowledge about the subject and the 2 BHK flat in kolar road was worth to read, it undoubtedly cleared my vision and thoughts towards B 3 BHK flat in kolar road. Your writing skills and the way you portrayed the examples are very impressive. The knowledge about 4 BHK flat in kolar road is well covered. Thank you for putting this highly informative article on the internet which is clearing the vision about top builders in Bhopal and who are making an impact in the real estate sector by building such amazing townships.

Poole - lovely, I had 18 & 21 year old nieces and 91 year old mother all thoroughly enjoying themselves with me.

Mr Finnemore, you commented on previously seeing comedy shows in the larger theatre at the Lighthouse & noting you were in the smaller one but I remember seeing the play of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy in the Towngate as was (ie the theatre you were in) back in the 80's. Now if Douglas Adams is not a perfect act for you to follow I really don't know what is!

I met my current boyfriend after reading elite singles reviews on wizzlove.com and he is a great match. I wouldn’t have met him serendipitously and I am grateful for this site. You only need to meet ONE person for it to be right. Go into it with a positive mind and I’m sure you’ll find this site reasonable.

I rarely share my story with people, not only because it put me at the lowest point ever but because it made me a person of ridicule among family and friends. I put all I had into Binary Options ($690,000) after hearing great testimonies about this new investment

 strategy. I was made to believe my investment would triple, it started good and I got returns (not up to what I had invested). Gathered more and involved a couple family members, but I didn't know I was setting myself up for the kill, in less than no time all we had put ($820,000) was gone. It almost seem I had set them up, they came at me strong and hard. After searching and looking for how to make those scums pay back, I got introduced to maryshea03@gmail.com to WhatsApp her +15623847738.who helped recover about 80% of my lost funds within a month.
