Shine Up Yer Buttons

by Conor Biggs

A British children's song sung in playgrounds, with an almost rude text. I recorded this with a heavy cold, which adds to the atmosphere. My version is in Dublinese.

Evocative Charm
This is a slightly new direction in this artists discographical career, marking a mid-life crisis or a genuine, soul-searching delve into the depths of rampant commercialism. Either way, this by no means takes from its artistic merit, as to say such a thing would be to imply that this issue from Mr. Biggs' loins had artistic merit to begin with. No, rather this is a cry for help from the depths of the soul of the artist and takes us into hitherto unexplained and unexplored territory in terms of his vocal emissions - think of this as his musical answer to global warming, and his plaintive cries carry us to a place where we can all swim in the hope that global extinction will strike us or at least that the song will soon come to an end. ENJOY!
