Fuck The Tories

A wee tune by John Spiers he wrote after deciding it shouldn’t just be songwriters who can make political music.

Originally imagined as a hornpipe but is far more like a French-Canadian "crooked reel" to the composer’s delight!

Enjoy the tune, apologies for the bad language!

Re: F**k The Tories

I might have just found my tune for xmas ;)

Re: F**k The Tories

Thanks for the video… I was actually just listening to some Spiers and Boden earlier, and this one is definitely good. First time I’ve seen any swearing on here!

Re: F**k The Tories

This is much too nice a tune to be associated with the Tories.

Re: F**k The Tories

This is great, thanks!

Re: F**k The Tories

New ringtone!

What’s the difference between a banjo and a trampoline?
You take your shoes off to jump on a trampoline

F**k The Tories, X:2

cracking tune - hope you don’t mind, I adjusted the down beat to make more sense to what I heard you play. Good stuff!

Re: F**k The Tories

Left stranded! I see the little request made in jest for banjo jokes that was in the comments section above has been removed and now my post appears rather oddly out of context. No offence meant folks just a bit of fun. I first heard that old one years ago about my pipes.

Re: F**k The Tories

How is it that Folk The Tories is swearing… am I missing something?

Re: F**k The Tories

Second version, there seems to be a problem with measures 9 and 10. Measure 9, which is split between the end of the A section and the pickup to the B, is short an eighth note, and measure 10 has one quarter note beat too many.

My transcription from May 2017.

Re: F**k The Tories

Agree, it is far too nice a tune to go with the title!! Should we have a competition to see who can come up with the direst tune for that title?

Re: F**k The Tories

Well I see from my original transcription I called it "Fank The Tories (For All Wot They Have Did)".

Re: F**k The Tories

As in "Fings ain’t wot they used to be"?

Re: F**k The Tories

Indeed. Fink you got the right idea.

Re: F**k The Tories

Yes, all very radical I’m sure. Just be careful what you wish for - the alternative could be so much worse…

Re: F**k The Tories

Not very radical here, Stephen. I’m just not very comfortable with the title - it’s a bit too blatant for my liking. (At least "Balls to Hall" could have several meanings.) But thanks for letting us know where your political allegiance lies.

Re: F**k The Tories

Heee! Heeee! It was played on BBC news last Tuesday, from the session in The Royal Oak, Fishguard. They were interviewing people, including Folk Musicians, in marginal constituencies…..

Re: F**k The Tories

VOTE LABOUR next week.

Re: F**k The Tories

No chance. SNP for Scotland. No to Labour and their trident and Brexit.

I can see a few posts being deleted in the near future, I’m afraid.
