I come from SE london, not quite cockney, but hey. This piece made me laugh, i was expecting something more upbeat though. The banjo was er....random, but funny. Love it!! Have you ever heard Bill Baileys cockney medley? It's friggin hilarious!

Grumbleduke responds:

Bill Bailey's Cockney Influences in Classical Music? It had me laughing Moonlight Sonata's pearly intro! I know it's not quite cockney, but I do picture (you should understand my logic) Steptoe and Son, therefore Vic and Bob's cockney walkabout dance. Hence my naming. I come from SE London too!

Reminded of some movie...

Just about any movie. I saw some people walking the streets under the rain... lol, gotta love that crazy imagination of mine.

That is until the "banjo" or well guitar came in. Then i saw that Texan farmer going his little way working in the fields.

I really liked the piano in this piece and the brass was good to. Then when the guitar came in i didn't enjoy it as much. To my ears i wasn't so good with the piano at the same time. The little percussions add a nice touch to the song.

I'd really see this as another one of those "village" themes of yours.

You say you don't know what made you do this... well because it's a nice and relaxing track.

Nice work on this song. Nice to see you submitting again.

P.S. I read your reviews but i haven't answered them yet, and i'm not making music for a little while cause i can't come up with anything for the moment. See you later.

Grumbleduke responds:

Ah, you know not of the Cockney music of England. Look up "Chaz and Dave" and you'll understand more. It's not entirely accurate to the style, but it seemed that way to me. It's an unusual style, so naturally it went into the misc genre!
