Sputnikâs 15th album âRed Ukuleleâ celebrates the versatility of the small but ever more popular Ukulele, & presents an eclectic collection of fresh Uke driven catchy tunes & unique songs that yet again defy easy categorisation.
Collaborating with multi-instrumentalist Hector Gubbins adding Mandolin/Banjo/Guitar & Melodeon to create an alt-folk/country soundscape behind Sputnikâs unique vocal wizardry, driving uke, & impressive artillery of percussion (but no drums!). In a world that needs classification, Sputnik has his own âFile underâ box! Quirky, but entirely enjoyable, if this album was an endangered species it would be a âPan-gerâ (The warmth of a Panda with the teeth of a Tiger).
"I'd never owned or played a ukulele before, but was drawn to a cheap and lonely looking little red uke hanging in a music shop in Swansea. It had to be red... and once I'd brought it home, (despite the frets being out of line, making tuning almost impossible, and only about 4 chords playable) it didn't dissapoint, and the 'Red Ukulele' songs pretty much wrote themselves."
Mr Gubbins plays the banjo, mandolin, guitar, and squeeze box...
Sputnik Weazel Junior plays the tenor sax on 'Love Lost Found'...
Mrs Weazel sings backing vocals on 'Pop Tune'...
Mr Weazel strumms, hits, and vocalises the rest...
These songs were recorded over two sessions @ Weazel HQ, Llandeilo (West Wales),
during the Summer/Fall of 2010. Fuled by vegetarian curry, German lager, & fresh Welsh air...

The âUkeâ, is a kind of plucked lute; a Red Uke is a red version...
âWe got super glue for wings, wounds, body bags and pop tunesâ
Peak Oil - the point in time when the maximum rate of global petroleum extraction is reached, after which the rate of production enters terminal decline...
Thereâs a couple next door in the Uke Flats, theyâre fighting over this and theyâre fighting over that
Theyâre fighting over custody, theyâre fighting for it all, theyâre fighting for a principle that neither can recall
Thereâs an old man drinking in the flat upstairs, it numbs the pain of feeling, feeling no-one cares
He watches day time TV with the sound up really high, it stops the nagging question âdid I waste my lifeâ
Thereâs a bright eyed couple with a bright green door, sheâs banging on the ceiling glass, heâs sleeping on the floor
They thought about religion then adopted two black cats, thereâs all kinds of wild life in the Uke Flats
Thereâs a drummer with a suitcase and an artist with a rope, they kind of co-exist beyond the homeless drummer joke
They search for truth and beauty (and thereâs nothing wrong with that), pulling endless rabbits from a battered buskers hat
Uke flats, Uke Flats, one step from the trailor park and two steps from the back
Uke flats, Uke Flats, life goes on regardless in the Yuke Flats
