So today is the opening of the Olympics. Hoorah! The nation is in a frenzy. Apparently.
All the hype aside, there’ll be some great sporting stories waiting to unfold. Enjoy it.
There’s a funny thing that happens at the Olympics though.
Bolton UNISON commissioned me to write a song supporting the strikes about to take place on November 30th.
So here it is. Enjoy! It’s called Greedy Fingers.
This will be new to you, but I wrote this song a few years ago, especially for the children at Whitefield School in Liverpool.
I sung this song for the first time during my headline set at Hove Folk Club on Friday.
But I wrote it on the way to the Sophie Lancaster gig at the end of last month.
The song I wrote for the Shrewsbury Pickets Justice Campaign, My Name Is Dessie Warren, has been featured on the Union Songs website.
Unionsong.com is an influential collection of rebel songs, songs of freedom, work songs, songs of dissent, protest songs, liberation songs and labour songs.
As promised here is the recorded version of My Name Is Dessie Warren.

I know it’s usual for musicians to only share their songs when they’re completed, produced and the full works.
But I’ve decided to start sharing works much earlier than that.
I’ve uploaded a new song from my gig at the Glastonwick Festival in Sussex.
Let’s know what you think of it.
The journey was a 16 hour round trip so I’ll be posting some of the antics from along the way over the next few days.
A moment of history happened tonight.
AFC Liverpool, the club I founded last year on socialist principles, won our first trophy in our very first season.
If you didn’t hear the official cup final song that I wrote and released last week, then check it out here
The buzz around the AFC Liverpool Cup Final song continues to build, with the track being played at half time today at Anfield.
44,000 people attended the game to watch Liverpool steamroll to a 4-0 win over Blackburn Rovers.
