This tune was played in my area years ago by a local band. I came back in my head few weeks ago. I just remembered the first part. I asked a member of the band to give me the second part. Has anybody more infos on this unusual tune?


Composed by Tony "Sully" Sullivan, great banjo-player from Manchester.

mushroom treatment : Defined as the act of your upper level management not telling you what you need to know, and anything they do tell you is not true.

Irtrad is more a rural tradition, isn’t it. So maybe dafydd is correct. Anyway both interpretation have a lot to do with BS.

Lovely tune anyway, I prefer to play it in A mix (with C# )

BS? Bachelor Of Science? British Steel? Blood Sugar? Bill Of Sale? Back Space? Bart Simpson? Boy Scouts?

BS = bovine excrement !

Or, as an old coworker put it to me one day…. We’re the mushroom crew. We’re kept in the dark and fed BS all day!
