"Sheffield’s finest synthesizer player and twaddle talker" Telegraph ,decides it’s time to instruct the Nation in moral matters. Britain is in serious moral decline: dwindling church attendances, binge drinking in City centres, the MPs’ expenses scandal and fat cat bonuses, the continued destruction of the environment despite global warming, and most recently, the theft of a box of slug pellets and weed killer from John’s shed.
The moral rectitude of next door neighbour and sole agent, Ken Worthington is also in question: his sloppily typed email to the printers has caused an error in the title of this show turning "morals" into "more rolls". But John’s quite happy about that as it will allow him to also discuss the vast range of new breads available like panini, ciabatta, and the peshwari nan (John recently enjoyed a bite of Ken’s – "It absolutely blew me away")
Expect new songs, plus old favourites hammered out on John’s trusty Yamaha keyboard, (upon which a bible may be balanced!)
Joining John will be a slightly dodgy concreter from Goole, Dave Tordoff “His ignorance is comical bliss” Evening Standard, plus a misanthropic media lecturer from the Midlands, Brian Appleton. “An inspired creation …Spinal Tap watch your back” The Irish Times
John Shuttleworth has been heard on BBC Radio 4 in the Summer in a brand new six part series of The Shuttleworths,and his latest film Southern Softies will be seen on Sky Arts later this year.
