About this time last year Tim wrote a little song of praise where “the idea was to compare [Jesus] to Woody Allen (short, Jewish, philosophical, a bit hesitant), and expand into redefining his other alleged attributes using modern, popular-culture terminology”. He then joyously performed it
on The Jonathan Ross Show at summer festivals all over the UK in 2012 and more recently at Homebake Festival, Sydney, Australia.
In November, Tim, his long hair, bare feet, beard and band* performed a warm-up gig (for the above Aussie festival) at The Coronet, London, the proceeds of which went to Medicins Sans Frontieres (Doctors Without Borders). The show was recorded for a documentary** and their euphonious performance of ‘Woody Allen Jesus’ has just been edited and put up on Tim’s YouTube Channel in violet-blue hue’d gloriousness for your delectation. Just in time for Christmas!
If that’s helped you into the Christmas spirit then you may fancy keeping the mood going with Tim’s beautiful, sentimental song about Christmas and family: ‘White Wine In The Sun’. A new studio version was released, earlier this month, with all December proceeds, once again, going to the National Autistic Society. Details of where to download it internationally here.
