I sent him a copy of my then-current cassette "A Church Hall Of Sound", which he seemed to like, and then he asked me if I had any unreleased songs he could use? As ever, I said "Yes, of COURSE I do!" and then went home and wrote this song.

MJ Hibbett – A Million Ukeleles (MP3) MJ Hibbett – I Did A Gig In New York (MP3) via MySpace. MJ Hibbett has spent most of his musical life knocking out Billy Bragg/Half Man Half Biscuit type punky numbers on mundane aspects of English life (particularly football and antiquated digital technologies) with his band The Validators. But he’s gone solo and picked up the uke for his most recent album A Million Ukeleles (sic). It’s been nearly two years now, as I got my first one as a birthday present. I’ve always liked the idea of them, probably due to a season of George Formby films that were on one year during the school holidays, which me and my brother lapped up when we stayed with various Nans! I also read an article online which gave some brilliant advice for playing uke – if you can’t play a chord, play an easier one, and if you can’t play an easier chord just stop playing and sing louder.
