American Saviour

This is not just an ADVENTURE…. It’s a HAPPENING….It’s a NEW WORLD ORDER EVENT!

Strange Currencies single, released on digital stores December 3rd 2016.

We hear the roar of fans… Hellaujahyeah! This is a funky monster of a record that will have you singing along to the chorus like a beastie in the bushes with a lollipop in one hand and a toupee in the other.Turn it up in your vehicle, your cans, your in ears to harass neighbours, at BBQ s and dance like you’re a shivering kangaroo on a cake walk in a hurricane. Or even…..

“Jump on board let’s ride the pony, one by one go marching in.” 

With a pledge. It begins. “Ride the Pony” make a promise… kick it off with a walrus howl, a banjo riff and an comb-over quiff. Hell unleashes a war of woo hoo’s.

We had oodles of fun making this. The music was originally a concept, then a mess about idea involving body movements I cannot possibly discuss as you had to be there, for a bit of fun. Through the rejected orphans come the serial killers and trending chillers that break on through to the other side. With no direct reference to ‘My Little Pony.’ You never know it may appear with Rick Astley on ‘Now 100!’

So the challenge to recreate as a duo live with the aid of a loop pedal a plectrum and no cheating….  We wish ourselves luck and sober rehearsals. Enjoy.

American Saviour   

Pick up the pen 

And make your mark 

Just know that I’ve had your back 

Since from the start 

Don’t you go looking too hard 

For the small print 

Because this gift to the world 

Is heaven sent 

Is heaven sent 

It’s heaven…sent 

Jump on-board let’s ride the pony

One by one go marching in

Don’t forget to pray to heaven 

Tell me what’s my line again 

This is the charge 

Answer the call 

Here’s comes the action man to save us all

A mighty wind of change 

Blows up the storm 

But if I say the wrong thing 

Deny it all

Deny it all

Deny it…all

Jump on-board let’s ride the pony 

One by one go marching in 

Don’t forget to pray to heaven 

Tell me what’s my line again 

Oh can you see 

What’s oh so clear 

That this here land of the free 

Is drenched in fear

But if you give me the chance 

I’ll keep you safe 

The only game in town 

Come pledge your faith 

Come pledge your faith 

Come place your…faith 

Jump on-board let’s ride the pony 

One by one go marching in 

Don’t forget to pray to heaven 

Tell me what’s my line again 

Jump on-board let’s ride the pony 

One by one go marching in 

Don’t forget to pray to heaven 

Tell me what’s my line again 

I am a shining star 

I can touch what I want

Live on Acacia Radio: Strange Currencies

Yes its selfie time again! Strange Currencies at Acacia Radio with Presenters Shaun and Ian Fiddlesticks Hales. On 1287 AM Stream HEREimg_8246

We spent a fabulous couple of hours with the lovely folk at Acacia Radio on 5th November 2016. Although Fireworks were not let off. We enjoyed bacon and sausage cobs, banter and charming company. Tales of Tena men, the true origins of our birth locations, ‘Claud Greengrass’ variations. We cheated at the quiz by getting Ange with a co conspirator…who will remain ‘nameless’ to google the answers as she sat behind Ian! Ha ha ha

We also performed some of our songs live. Including a Rock Rollin’ Banjo cover version of Never Going To Give You Up.

Strange Currencies are:

PP Johnson – Vocals

Claudine West – Instruments / Backing Vocals

Songs:

Maddening Skies

I Don’t Dance

Automatic

Never Gonna Give You Up

Razor Face

Strange Currencies on iTunes Link

This station is doing a great job for musicians, with regular artist slots. We also indulged in some jingle making afterwards. (My new career sex line voice and PP’s potential radio show presenter role gave us both new meaning in our lives.)
