Lyrics
hobo soul am i,
hobo soul are you,
hobo soul are we,
yeah you know we love to sing the blues . . .
so roll up a few and kick off your shoes,
'cause i'm gonna sing a song for you.

i got a hobo soul,
you got a hobo soul,
you know you got a hobo soul,
if you love sweet rock and roll . . .
lay back in your chair you aint going anywhere,
any time real soon.

hobo from the toes of my tip,
hobo to the head of my top,
you na na know you never sta sta stop,
the hobo always love hip-hop . . .
with your shelltoes on your feet,
take a pill and trip to the beat . . .

rest in peace top of the pops !

Nice return
Good to hear some more CJ stuff...I like the phone calls at the beginning,
you must have terrorised HMV Swansea for some time there? Cool
and good

This is...
...I don't know, really HAPPY & FUN! I've missed you and your music. This
is artisitc and I can't wait to see what else you may have up your sleeves.
Cool to leave with and outro and return with an intro, love it! The mix is a
little unstable, perhaps on purpose, and it actually doesn't bother me
because like I said, this is fun!
I'm sure the past year has had many adventures and happenings? I haven't
been posting anything either for a very long time, but just got back here
the other day (check out my tunes if you wish)! Peace/M

hey mikki . . .
it's been a while eh ? . . .

took me a fair while to get back into things after being away . . .

everything's changed everywhere . . . and i've changed too . . .

and getting back in sync from changing at different levels is something

i hadn't bargained for . . . i'm sure you know what i mean . . .

anyways . . . i'll check out your new stuff . . .

and i'm glad to hear you're still creating . . .

nice one

Your back?
Back and sounding great... !! What a fun take on the blues riff this is... I
especially liked the transformation into the electronic sounds... and all the
vocal clips... really good to hear you again.

cheers erik . . .
thanks . . .

all this stuff was written on a ukelele and scribbled in a sketch book
over a six month period . . .
and while i was lazing on a beach or hanging around temple grounds,
i'd sing 'em in my head and imagine
all the instrumental layers i could ram in to them . . .
when i got back then i set about recording them . . .
they kinda sound like the things i imagined, but as with all this
stuff i do . . . it takes over itself and becomes what it ends up as . . .

if you listen carefully, there's recordings i made with a minidisc
of temple bells in thailand, cab rides in 'nam, markets in cambodia . . .
all kinds of s h i t . . . but it broke when i got to australia :( . . .

anyways . . .

thanks again

I love the way...
this morphs into a laid back retro rock and roll track. Incredibly
creative and enjoyable. This sounds fantastic. So where does one get
the album by that great unknown?

cheers...
country john said 4645 days ago (October 26th, 2006)
cheers mate . . .
you can get the album by downloading it . . .

when it's all up i'll arrange downloadable sleeves . . .

so you can make your own . . .

Just the one? :)
A 12 month rest has done you good John! I'm starting here to work my
way through the album. Incredible that it's exactly 12 months between
phase 1 and phase 2.
