“SONG FOR EWE”
with DAN DONNELLY of
THE WONDER STUFF
“SONG FOR EWE” is the feature where artists & music people beloved by VELVET SHEEP choose an obscure song they’ve been listening to that day. Today’s guest is part of a newly resurgent The Wonder Stuff who released a new album called “30 Goes Around The Sun” this year and are currently on tour with the ace Fuzzbox and 90s big beat band Bentley Rhythm Ace. What better time to see a band with such joie de vivre than Christmas, and so it’s a festive welcome to VS to Dan Donnelly!
Here’s the new single…
But what did Dan choose as his “song for ewe”…
“‘Sex With You’ by King Missile is everything you want from an obscure song. It begins with a generic, stereotypical love struck line, “Sex with you is all I want” and then gradually expands the scope of what is wanted to list a litany of other things, ranging from basic needs like food to luxury items like a, ‘shower and some shampoo’.
King Missile are a band that can mix weirdness, the sacred, the profane and the mundane yet always make the whole concoction seem somehow romantic. This is the perfect example of their music. It’s quirky, it’s beautiful but most importantly it’s a gateway to all their other fantastic songs that will fill you with elation and make you smile!!”
