Ukulinklinks: New James Hill Album

You can listen to excerpts from James Hill’s upcoming album True Love Don’t Weep on his website.

Chalmers Doane has posted all nine of his and the Halifax’s uke albums on his site. And the music is as kitsch as the covers. (Via HUG).

And related to both those, the new edition of Ukulele Yes! is up. (I wish they’d put up an RSS feed. I completely missed the last one. And I’m still not subscribed despite numerous attempts and assurances from the man himself).

Ukulele Cosmos has been shut down by its host for using too much bandwidth. Stay away from Bluehost and scammers who recommend it. They’re a notoriously crappy host but they’re very generous to affiliates.

Des Cordes et Dubois has a very challenging tab of Allegretto Op. 30 by Mauro Giuliani.

Jimmy McGee tells us how to be annoying with a ukulele yet fails to mention the most annoying song to play on the ukulele.

Ukulele spotting: Phil Jupitus and Lauren Laverne uke it up in a caravan – at around 5 and 9 1/2 minutes (thanks to Andy for that). The Saturdays break out the uke for Comic Relief at 1:50 (should I be worried that I find the uke the most exciting part of that video?).

Jake Wildwood‘s other half, Bonnie, has these cute banjolele-playing gnome doodads for sale (it took me a while to realise that’s a pipe rather than some Gene Simmons gnome action).

Taking the Flying V concept one step further.

Baby Bosko. Awww bless.

    Even as a baby Bosko was way cooler than me. How depressing.

    I have no idea who the Saturdays are, does that say something about me?

    Just a quick heads up, The Cosmos is back, however if you’re using old bookmarks to get into the forum they will fail, either go to the main page and follow the link from their or use this one http://www.ukulelecosmos.com/phpBB3/index.php

    Minamin: Bosko’s cooler than everyone. Don’t sweat it.

    John: It says you don’t watch enough telly. I can’t turn it on without them cropping up.

    Paolo: And still on Bluehost. Crazy.

Got something to say?
