'Violent Lewisham' Confuses Jenkins!

 

 2013-04-25 14:30:46

The leafy SE London borough of Lewisham has statistically just been proven to be the 'least peaceful' and 'most violent place in the UK'.

But long time proud resident Billy Jenkins recommends listening to his 'I Am A Man From Lewisham' CD.

'It's full of life affirming energy, community spirit and feel good factors', says the 56 year old guitarist and composer.

But this contradicts with elements of his work. Does not the title track feature gun shots and short-wave radio police messages?

'Maybe not many folks can tell the difference between a gunshot and a Royal Enfield 350 cc single cylinder motorcycle backfiring....', offers Jenkins.

'And if you really listen and understand the phonetic alphabet - the police are actually discussing which takeaway to visit. And, to that end, I'm not inferring the police are not doing their job. Far from it. Perhaps they police our borough so effectively, the statistics are no doubt accurate - thus zooming lovely Lewisham to the coveted Number One slot!'

Find out what on earth Billy is talking about by treating yourself or a friend to a copy of the critically acclaimed 'I Am A Man From Lewisham'- available on the Billy cds pages here at jazzcds.co.uk!!

As it says in the album sleeve notes - 'Love wherever you live!'


'The south Londoner's eruptions of punk-improv guitar-playing, knack of assembling gloriously incompatible ingredients, and his underlying ire about the urban downside always cut through. I Am a Man from Lewisham is the surreal, chaotic and disarmingly charming result.'

John Fordham / The Guardian
