Eugene McGuinness and his lions are out on the prowl

We listen a fair bit to Radio 6 which has some amazing shows from Huey, Don and Lister, but often the chat of the DJ gets too much and we turn to Late Night Jukebox. This is a bit of a cop-out since a fair chunk of the music they play is stuff we already own. Still, there is room for something new.


Her name is Madleen Teetsov.

They have been playing this song called Lion on high rotation and it is cool and catchy in a Queens of the Stone Age kind of way. Once you figure out what he is saying the lyrics are a hoot and the bass line is a killer.

After hearing it for the tenth time in two weeks I figured it was time to find out who sang it, so I put down my glass of rosé and wandered to the computer sitting in owl corner at the other end of the large, cold house and looked it up on youtube. It turns out not to be QotSA, but someone called Eugene McGuinness. Never heard of him before.

But the video! Who cares about the singer where there’s so much 80s modern dance on display.

I rushed back to get Jean to watch the video (and to retrieve my glass of rosé) and as predicted it was a hit with my modern-dancer wife. The kids gathered around the monitor and wondered what language he was speaking. Yes Otto, that is English.

    I think I’ve seen Eugene McGuiness on Rage.
