Jim To The Rescue

Oh yes. The battle against the music thieves kicks up a notch.

Jim`s back to deal a blow to the beard of Jeff Lynne, and steal the specs of the little bloke from Hot Chip.

Fear Jim.

Branning Mania!

(the real) Jim goes global

And a warm headstaggers welcome to 2007 to all you lovely people.

Hats off to the BBC. They may get paid a shitload of money via a stealth tax on anything capable of doing anything with radiowaves (some day I`ll tell you about the row I had with TV licencing because I bought a bloody standalone aerial), but by god this has made my festive season.

The real Jim Branning, actor John Bardon has been appearing on a charity show where celebrities get to strut their stuff and attempt to sing. They are then judged by some half-talented musicians, the most important of which would have to be Stewart Copeland, known as a founder member (and drummer) for The Police, and for writing the music to The Equalizer. What a cracking show that was. Robert McCall doing bugger all yet managing to beat the baddies.

Brought via YouTube leechy goodness, here is (the real) Jim Branning in all his glory. FUCK YEAH!

I could almost snuggle up to Jim, skin him, and wear him as a flesh overcoat. Mmmmmmm. Here`s Jim doing Maneater by Nelly Furtado. Truly impressive stuff.

Tina Turnip`s Simply The Best. Well she obviously ain`t – check out JIM!.. John.

… filed under site updates cos I`m lazy and don`t have a Jim section. Oops.

Hard To Beat Branning

Hard Fi Taken To The Cleaners

Now added to the Jim songs: Hard To Beat.

My PC seems to be ready to die.. so Jim may need to rest for a little while.

New Jim Songs! WAYHEY!

New songs.. with SEXY RESULTS!

Lazy Jim has been trying to keep warm in the cold UK climate, and has picked up his trusty instrument and twanged his g string for you, dear readers. Contain your excitement. Please.

In this installment, Jim brings you:

* Blackbird – nicked by The Beatles
* Last Goodbye – THIEVED by Jeff Buckley
* Oh What A Circus – stolen by David Essex – Jim`s even demonstrated his War Of The Worlds talents
* Pulling Mussels (From The Shell) – pinched by Squeeze – those naughty Tilbrook and Difford chaps

Branning! Branning! Branning!

Jim`s aiming right for your ears. Embrace Jim and his musical horn.

Part 1 of the site update is almost complete. A pile of new Jim songs have been added to the music page, and a wee streaming player has been added. Most songs have been upgraded to glorious slightly-better quality sound too. Before you listen, it might be worth picking up a few boxes of Kleenex, because this stuff is gonna blow your mind. Maybe.

Jim`s been too lazy to transcribe some of these lovely tunes wot he wroted and were stolen by the bastard stars of today`s hit parade, but promises he will add them later on.

Part 2 of the update will be a new gallery thing, which should look a bit less pants, but I wouldn`t recommend nipping down to William Hill and putting a fiver on it just yet.
