SingerOther Musician wanted

The job is to record music and vocal - and send both music track and dry vocal track, and mixed track - of our parody lyrics of The "Archers" full theme Tune ("Barwick Green").

We can supply a guide to audio recording.
We would love a video as well of the whole thing but that is optional.

This recording will be for a political parody CD / download for which profits will go to coronavirus charities. Performers can be credited on the video if provided (we will add wording and credits as per performers's spec)

The YouTube "Barwick Green" that shows a picture of an old radio is the tune to use, which our lyrics match, but new recording required for quality reasons. Also the music would need to be played in a key which suits the singer.

There are 4.7 million Archers fans in UK that might potentially see your video if you supply one

The tune is quite tricky, and we can adjust small details of lyrics to suit. However changes of lyrics must be agreed with us before recording.

If you can perform but not record or mix, then please let us know but also specify location.

Job payment

Payment TBC - Please quote fee required for the job as you propose to do it, bearing in mind this is for charity

The lyrics start like this and cover the whole of "Barwick Green" (2+ minutes)

Round and round the case we go,
Thinking who we'll  blame next.
Hey let’s try care homes you know,
Though they may all be vexed,
Say procedures
Were not followed there,
Didn’t know what to do.
Though we really
Caused the problem;
Didn’t have a clue.

And now the question who fits up
For Brexit which has gone tits up;
Well since we’re all complainers
Let us blame Remainers.
Well yes they warned us not to Leave;
Their warnings we did not believe;
Fingers in your ear,
Project Fear.
