‘It was never supposed to make that noise’

The Sandy & Powell Confusion #1

July 20th, 2010

Somewhere lost in time and reason a unison more powerful than cream emerges!

This nugget's treats include:

  • The World Leaders Song
  • Ranko "Brain Cleanse"
  • Jack 'n' Danny's Fine Cuisine

And there is the usual old rambling from the darker side of the kettle.

It's like the old podcast only trimmed, primed and spruced for a post-nuclear age.

In this episode I explore the delights of the ukulele by catching up with the “Pompey Pluckers”- Portsmouth's Ukulele Group.

I talk to founders and newcomers about the draw of the uke, how the group is going from strength to strength, and the curious resurgence of the “jumping flea”.

For more information on joining the group, their regular meets, gigs and the ukulele itself go to:
