Description

NEW: THE PICCADILLY TROT is the latest single from UK solo artist The Soho Hobo (aka Tim Arnold). Long before Londoners were doing The Lambeth Walk, they paraded around Piccadilly according to this delightful number by the Queen of the Music Halls, Marie Lloyd. The song itself, from that period just before WW1, refers to the ragtime style which was very much in vogue in 1912. The little digs at America were a bit of a feature of British music hall numbers, and the magnificent Marie was certainly fiercely loyal. 102 years later, Tim reboots the song to celebrate Record Store Day 2014 in it's first ever re-release with ska/reggae influences and a nod to the music of Madness and The Specials, complete with a newly penned middle 8 that celebrates the romance of modern day Piccadilly.
