Review of ’Burlesque’ by Bellowhead dictated by M (aged 10 and learning about adjectives) and P (aged 6, who thinks Rachael is really a Princess), to Mummy, who kindly agreed to do the typing.
We like the unique sound and extraordinary songs of the wonderfully talented musicians in this fantastic band.
We really enjoy it when they play musical statues live and we like playing it ourselves when we listen to them at home.
We really like Rachael because she has beautiful hair and a lovely face.
Jon is an extremely good singer, he has a great voice - we bet he could sing in an opera on his own!
We like the drum kit that Pete plays because it is a made up drum kit that no-one else has - it has spoons and everything.
We like Gideon because he plays a Sousaphone - that everyone can hear even from miles away!
P - I like London Town the best because it goes ’up to the rigs / down to the jigs / up to the rigs of London town’ and I like singing along to it.
M - I like ’Flash Company’ because of how Jon sings it.
We really love dancing in our seats when mummy plays it in the car. Our favourite game in the car (when it’s on) is to chose an instrument and pretend to play it in all the right places and try to sing along as well. It’s a game we can play with the slow songs as well. Some of the slow songs are really lovely.
We can’t wait for the new album, and look forward to seeing you again at a folk festival.
