New track – They died with their boots on

For this new track the Sea Cadets strap on their spurs and head to the Wild West (the Norfolk Lavender fields near Heacham to be exact...) - click the image below to stream on Spotify

They Died with their boots on (Words/Music - The Sea Cadets)

Day follows Night, drought follows rain
This we expect again and again
start work at six and finish at dusk
sand dries our skin and our hands ever rough
The seeds that we plant in the dirt that we till
Will feed the villagers if we’ve got will
The wind on our backs turns the horses around
We can’t plough the fields in this arid baked ground
Take to the road when the moon is high
Finding our way with the stars in the sky
When will the sweat of our toil bring reward
We fight for enough let alone something more
We’re humble and ancient, our hair has long gone
We remember our youth in the face of our sons
No time to take pleasure in sun on our face
We’ll starve and be homeless if we lose this race

Fabulously, Tom Robinson played it as part of his BBC Introducing mixtape - thanks Tom.

New track – The Old North Walsham Line

75E95DE0-4361-47C0-AAA9-68FC911001AD

We decided to cover a mighty tune by the Sheringham Springsteen himself, Allan Smethurst. Anyone casting a slight against the Singing Postman is liable to find themselves overstamped.

Have you got a Soundcloud boi ? Listen here if so...

The Old North Walsham Line video is 5G compliant and exempt from social distancing. Watch it here

New track – ‘European Again’

Fresh from having sorted out the anti-vaxxers and Covidiots, now we turn our thoughts towards Europe.

Sighs...
