Billy Connolly is back in the public eye at the moment. I found it
strange that the recent BBC documentary about him made no mention that he got his first
break in showbiz playing in Matt McGinn’s backing band (if you’ve not heard of Matt, imagine a Scottish Pete Seeger). I’m having a listen through Matt’s back catalogue
and this song pours some pretty piping hot tea on English
imperialism/foreign adventurism! “Now to end this tale, his heart did
fail after several false alarms. When they shovelled him in he did look
thin, though he still had mighty arms”
