How to Make Fudge (for Fête de la Musique)

Today is the summer solstice and also Fête de la Musique (http://www.fetedelamusique.culture.fr/en/International/presentation/) so in the spirit of the day the recipe for Fudge (Words + Chords) is below.
Why not pick up your guitar and go play it to a stranger?
See you at 2000 Trees,

Fudge
[G] Would you like a piece of my highly poisoned Fudge?
[C, G] Did I say highly poisoned? I meant to say delicious
[D, C, G] Definitely delicious not at all highly poisoned
[D,C, G] Would you like a piece of my highly poisoned Fudge?
 
[C, G] Hey!  I think you’re great
[D, C, G] All I want to do is wear your face
[C, G] Hey! I think you’re G-R-E-A-T
[D, C, G] Your face would look pretty cute on me
 
[G] Would you like to ride in my blacked out window-ed car?
[C, G] Don’t worry about the smell of meat I’ve just been to the butchers
[D, C, G] All those blood-red stains are merely spilled baked beans
[D, C, G] Would you like to ride in my blacked window-ed car?
 
[C, G] Hey!  I think you’re great
[D, C, G] All I want to do is wear your face

[D, C, G] Your face would look pretty cute on me
 
[G] Would you like to come over and babysit my cat?
[C, G] For I must go abroad and there will be an empty flat
[D, C, G] In fact this building’s empty no-one will hear your screams
[D, C, G] Would you like to come over and babysit my cat?
 
[C, G] Hey!  I think you’re great

A brief note on our launch show – 7th Feb

Hello,

Thank you to all who came down to the launch show at South Street on Thursday. It is hard to put into words how the night made me feel – I will just leave it at inspirational. The fire has been lit – watch out for more Quiet Quiet Band action this year.

If you were at the show you will know that new Ben Marwood material was immense and Tom Crook was very impressive.

Thanks also to Andy Martin for providing the sound and Mr Ben Morse for taking the awesome photo you can see in this post.

In other news “Flatlands” is now sold out as a physical CD, but you can get the MP3s on your iTunes or Amazon or whatever (along with the “Lay Low” split)

Love & hugs,
