Thanks, Molly. That's enough to make me smile in turn. Hope you feel better soon. Best wishes.

CJ, to disect, as you request. A bit of frippery, in part; other part orbits around K Dodd signiture 'Sad Songs', that crying voice, notion of then of crybaby, then Crybaby Wah Wah - guitar effect, associated with the blues and with emotive playing, notion of 'emotive playing', the wah wahs on Scott Walker's LP 'The Dift', sadness as negating device, hence: wahing nay, liked that phrase, looks strange on page/screen, looks difficult to say, but is lyrical and soft in fact, sadness as seduction, seductive pose, mixing that with other forms of seduction, Ken baying-out, fe/male mishmash, as I do, the pathos of the tax-evader, the pathos of being reduced to generic tax-evader despite comic past and being great knowledgeable historian of comedy, Ken as true surrealist, Diddymen et al, comes from Knotty Ash in Liverpool, near where I come from, Ken as proto-punk, with sticky-up hair and looking strange and dangerous on shows with The Beatles on them in the 1960s.

A tribute o.n.o.
