Nirvana Shovel

Shovels get a bad press. Whether it be as bizarre plate replacements, or in their more natural habitat as grave digging implements or road works collaborators – they’re always causing mischief.
It’s about time that shovels gave something back.
And they have chosen to begin giving back with this: playing the open chords of a Nirvana song.

Is it fake? Is it not? Who cares: what has been heard cannot be unheard.

Incidentally, one thing that isn’t fake is the Blur Song 2 Jubilee Line Underground gate. I know this, because I actually went through it when I was in London late last year.

The lack of sleep chez 6000 continues. Together with the heat of the day, this child-induced insomnia each night is pushing us to our limits. Even 2¾ year old Alex has called in the Unions who have threatened a “dirty protest” should the regular nocturnal crying from his little sister’s room persist. It’s a horrifying thought.

While down at the Waterfront, and having exhausted (npi) all other legal possibilities of inducing a good night’s sleep, I found this:

Kurt et al lullabyified

They do other bands, too.

Rockabye Baby! transforms timeless rock songs into beautiful instrumental lullabies. The soothing sounds of the glockenspiel, vibraphone, mellotron and other instruments will lull your baby into a sweet slumber.

So hopefully, from now on, with the lights out, it’s less dangerous.
