Don't Crush Bees
Don't Crush Bees To Death With Your Walking Stick (Hard Mix)
Wavis O'Shave has a habit of showing up when you least expect him to and leaving just when you have got used to him. He returns out of nowhere with this very rare version of his legendary hit "Don't Crush Bees".
Wavis lands somewhere between Spike Milligan, Vivian Stanshall, Science Fiction and musichall. He has also been described as "Alice Cooper with concussion" and "Kraftwerk meets the Goons"... Take your pick! Falling A's relationship with Wavis goes back many years through a common connection of roots in South Shields, Tyne & Wear via a number of releases and collaborations.
We have unearthed this "hard" to find obscurity, you can stream it from Spotify and the usual streaming places but if you are brave enough to download it from the Falling A website we will throw in an ultra rare B side unique recording of "The Hard" from the early 80's cassette "Up The Yama Yama"

These pages represent my best attempt at a musical journal, travelogue, archive record of my musical landscape and everything I have been involved in over the years. It features celebrated projects to undeveloped ideas, sketchpad moments, memories and general stuff that has been part of my creative endeavours and the Falling A Records story. I am attempting to place things in chronological order though as time passes and I trawl the crates in my loft, I am discovering that my record keeping has been quite vague at times. Please feel free to interact and correct where necessary. The page also serves as the archive page for the website and is where we post our various announcements etc.,
