Sam Mayo - I'm Going to
Sing a Song (CDR33)
Sam Mayo, billed as "The Immobile One" performed his songs whilst
remaining motionless on stage. Sam Mayo's songs are quite different
from the normal run of music hall performances. With titles such as Things
are worse in Russia and I feel very bad I do
this may not be a recipe for optimism. However, loved by audiences
then, and nowadays something of a cult figure, Sam Mayo brings the
unexpected to his lyrics.
Who could resist being told (in his song The Chinaman) "This
song is ridiculous, the worse that's in the land, but it's marvellous
the trash that the public stands."
