Badger Badger Badger – and the amazing Mr Weebl


I jumped in today [Mon 15 April] …at a moment’s notice, and so did my new pal Jonti. Into a new fire. Nothing like striking while the iron is hot …

Jonti Picking – otherwise known to me as Mr Weebl – the genius behind the Internet sensation “Badger Badger Badger Mushroom Mushroom … Snake Snake …

And if you don’t know what I’m talking about, you must have been hiding!

Actually I was probably the last to see this – most of my friends and my entire family were telling me about it long before I actually found the time to tune in. But then …. after a moment’s sheer bafflement, and wonder … the phenomenon broke upon me.

Coincidence seems to play a big part in my life … or perhaps not coincidence, but synchronicity borne of endeavours. Only a few days after my baptism into Badger Badger Badger, we heard that its author was outraged about the Government’s awful plan to destroy thousands of mostly healthy badgers families, in a mad scheme which, though supported fanatically by some farmers, is unlikely to help them in any way. He sent me over a rough demo of a new Badger track which, to me, had the unmistakeable stamp of brilliance.

Jonti agreed to come down and collaborate – and on Sunday night we both cleared the decks to meet Monday lunchtime in the studio. About 8 hours later … we had thrown everything we had at his brilliant new idea, enough material to do a mix, though I suspect there will be many mixes, if this makes people smile as much as I think it will. Jonti is an inveterate twitterer and master of electronic media, so I will mostly leave it to him to allow this little monster to escape in a suitable way.

If you’re interested, you won’t have to wait long ! Here’s Team Badger’s newest recruit …
