The Ukes Down Under: Friday Links

The UOGB documentary The Ukes Down Under is now available on DVD. Here’s the funniest DVD extra: the Aquila String Harvest. And if that’s of interest to you then, parliamentary sketch writer, Simon Hoggart knows exactly what you’re like, “They like to watch Miranda on TV, and hold their office Christmas parties at Café Rouge. They own little cars which have nicknames. Many belong to the Liberal Democrats.”

I sometimes struggle to convey just how glamorous the ukulele scene here in Derby is. Luckily, there’s a video that displays it perfectly: Gary Wilmot ukulele flashmobs Derby Westfield Centre. In other Derby ukulele news, The Re-entrants are splitting up but reforming as Phil Doleman and Ian Emmerson and performing original songs.

New Releases: All Young Girls Are Machine Guns’ new one Here’s Hopin’ Tomorrow Never Comes, Ed Harley’s Dandelion Wine.

Kyle James Frazer did a great session for Radio Teeside.

Pictures: Custom Mo’o tenor by KoAloha. So it’s impossible to play a ukulele and not smile?

Video: Most Popular Ukulele Videos September. Documentary (in Portugese but with English interviews) about the ukulele and cavaquinho (including Ohta San, Victoria Vox and Sophie Madeleine).
