ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Third solo album (and more of the same) from Ukulele Orchestra Of Great Britain member and self styled tallest ukulele player in the world, Peter Brooke Turner - AKA Tony Penultimate.

Produced by Andy Hamill (no, me neither) and mixed by Christopher Lewis (is this my stop?)

Written, arranged and sung almost entirely in hotel rooms around the globe, while touring with the UOGB, Adventures In Gibberish features many extraneous sounds (room service, hoovering, air conditioning) as well as musical saw, mandolin and tuba.

Additional parts were emailled in by musicians; one track “The Magic Inappropriate” features musicians from 3 different continents, all who have yet to meet Tony Penultimate.

Tony’s tortured baritone features throughout (in all styles, in all keys your honor) and is counterbalanced by the sweet sounds of Rebecca Hollweg and Elizabeth McCall.

Stand out tracks include “I Love Your New Album” - an anthem for indifferent record reviewers
“Why Did Elvis Cry” - a Maudlin, Mexican, mescaline drenched ballad.
“Looks Like The Swinging Sixties Are Here To Stay” - a Bob Dylan biblical spoof
“The Book The Rose And The Revolver” - the greatest hit Frank Sinatra never had.

The sole cover, “Blackpool” from Vic Godard and Irvine “Trainspotting” Welsh’s musical of 2002, features banjolele virtuoso Andy Eastwood.

ADVENTURES IN GIBBERISH is a document of a middle aged man slowly losing his mind from constant touring, listening to too many of his daughters Disney albums and losing 50% of his hearing in his left ear while getting out of the bath a few years ago.

It was a lot of fun to make!
