Bearcraft - Yestreen
The debut solo album from Dicky Moore - sometime Scritti Politti guitarist turned electro singer-songwriter - shows great promise.
Marchen A ferlie cam' ben to me yestreen
marvel; came inside; yesterday evening A lady jimp an' sma', slender, delicate, graceful, neat Wi' a milk-white snood an' a kirtle green; Yellow and bricht were her bonny een, An' she said, "Will ye come awa'"?
Late late yestreen
I saw the new moone, Wi' the auld moone in hir arme; And I feir, I feir, my deir master, That we will cum to harme.
And imagine the local health centre's reaction to Yestreen
I Had a Pint o' Wine.
