KINGS’ COMMENTS:

These are mostly a collection of random nonsense songs that John Junkin and I wrote on dark, wet, depressing afternoons in SW10 for our own amusement. Marty Feldman, a good friend of both of ours, heard us perform some of them at drunken soirees and fancied recording an album of them. One or two of the songs still make me laugh but my clear favourite is one written neither by Junkin or myself, but by our talented friend Bill Solly, and called “The World’s In Rhyme”. Bill has written a clever lyric that contains a succession of rhymes that aren’t quite right. In other words, rhymes that any proper lyricist would be ashamed to be associated with. And, being somewhat of a stickler for proper rhymes myself, I’ve been known to use Bill’s song as a sort of song-writing litmus test to see if people “get it” or not. If they don’t, if it needs to be explained, well...
Here are the first four lines:

“I’M IN LOVE AND THE WORLD’S IN RHYME
 IT’S AMAZING THE RHYMES I FIND
 FOR EXAMPLE, I’M SEVENTEEN
 AND MY LIFE IS LIKE A LOVELY DREAM!”

The clean cut King Brothers once shared a dressing room with a dishevelled, extremely affable and stoned Jimi Hendrix on the Simon Dee Show (BBC TV Manchester in 1967).
