“Pasties, Cream and Treacle” – the new CD from Mr Derek Wright.
Scrumpy and Western - Putting the fun back into Cornish Music!
Ooh Arr! Ooh Arr! - take a gurt dollop of the Wurzels, a shovel full of Jethro, and a tractor load of talent, and you get “Pasties, Cream and Treacle” - the most entertaining CD you'll hear from Cornwall this year, and already causing more fuss than a gorse fire up St Just.
Recorded at Bumblebee Studios in Bodmin, it's full of tracks such as the Cornish drinking song - "Farmers Union", the perils of a pasty and a pint at Newquay while squeezed into a very small Bikini, (Demelza and Denzil), and the ultimate homage to our favourite meal - "The Pasty Song" - Did you know that pasties were originally made from squashy eels?.
There's also some beautiful instrumental tracks, evoking the beauty and wonder of Cornish life and Landscape, such as "Flight Over Cornwall" and "Lands End".
