Andy Andres - A² B √piep (Matchstalk Men) mp3 flac
This is an old folk song by Brian and Michael about the painter Lowry. Easy to play and sing especially if you have a sore throat as I have this evening.
Matchstalk Men and Matchstalk Cats and Dogs" was a tribute to the artist L. S. Lowry, who had died two years previously. For the song, Coleman drew on his own memories of Salford and Ancoats as well as the paintings of Lowry. St Winifred's School Choir appeared on the record, singing the children's song "The Big Ship Sails on the Alley-Alley-O", which was sung by children in the Salford area with reference to the Manchester Ship Canal. The single spent three weeks at the top of the UK Singles Chart. A German cover version appeared in May 1978 by Andy Andres. The song was called "a² b √piep (Matchstalk Men)". Willy Alberti released a Dutch cover version in June 1978. Entitled "Ome Sjoerd", Irish singer David Kiely wrote the lyrics.

Now they said his works of art were dull No room, all round the walls are full But Lowry didn't care much anyway They said he just paints cats and dogs And matchstalk men in boots and clogs And Lowry said that's just the way they'll stay. And he painted matchstalk men and matchstalk cats and dogs He painted kids on the corner of the street with the sparking clogs Now he takes his brush and he waits outside them factory gates To paint his matchstalk men and matchstalk cats and dogs. Now canvas and brushes were wearing thin When London started calling him To come on down and wear.
