ukulele updates

gms, for all your ukulele needs.

dizzee rascal's new video, for 'flex', has a slightly lame pop idol theme, and is one of the less remarkable tracks off maths and english. it's all about shaking one's bottom, and can't hold a candle to 'sirens' - as a song or as a video. but it does feature a ukulele played behind the head - a first for a rap video?

rude uk blogger f***ing dance alerted me to dent may and his magnificent ukulele, whose myspace page features the oxford (mississippi) native playing uke ditties that recall the magnetic fields and nellie mckay. there are also some nice photos of dent pretending that he lives in the golden age of motoring. head to his website to download A Brush With Velvet - his free 6-song ep.

jake shimabukuro - 'while my ukulele gently weeps' (rza missed a trick not getting this guy on their 'interpolation' - i need to hear an inspectah deck sixteen over this action)
