    I had never heard of Jacob Borshard (I believe that’s how he spells it) until I listened to Not Quite Rocket Science. You can download two albums free from his web site http://www.creebobby.com/. He even has chords posted for one of them. I likes “Brains, brains” and “Vincent and Theo” so much I posted words+chords for them both to my site. Check them out.

    Ta for spelling correction. He does have some great songs. Grass Stains and You’re In Love Again are my faves. Whereabouts are the chords posted? I couldn’t find them on the site.

    If you download the lyrics for The Last Brontosaurus, the chords are listed at the end (not so for the other album, sadly).

    So they are. They’re not laid out very well – definitely worth you posting the better version.

Got something to say?
