various / trunk - Fingerbobs: Original Television Music

More delightful archival mining from Trunk, this time bringing together classic music from this important TV series. Yes it's kinda kitsch and nostalgic, but it also wierdly sounds like Moondog (ok, maybe more like Moondog collaborating with Pentangle) - with that warm, dusty, ageless percussive echo. Only 13 episode were ever made but were often repeated. It starred the audacious Fingermouse, a host of his paper friends (Scampi, Gulliver, Flash), and was fronted by folk musician, actor and former Play School presenter Rick Jones as "Yoffy". Each episode involved simple craft, music and a story or fable based on that week's theme (such as sound, wood, shapes and shadows). The whole series was conceived, created and modelled in a briliant home made style by the legendary husband and wife team Joanne and Michael Cole, the minds behind much of "Playschool", the books and TV series "Bod", and "Ragtime". The Fingerbobs album was apparantly a real labour of love for Trunk - there were no masters and very little paper based archive to speak of, so no set stills, no paper puppets. All that really remains are a few scraps of paper in the Cole's very small archive and the Fingerbobs annual, which contains nothing but pecualir drawings, none that really related to the show. But, as the album was going to print Lo Cole found an exceptionally rare promotional flyer for the series in 1973 when it was first aired, and this wonderful little gem is what has been used to make the fabulous artwork. In order to produce a musical album worthy of release, Jonny Trunk entrusted the ears and musical abilities of Jon Brooks (AKA The Advisory Circle) to pull together a musical collage of the whole series. So, we have all the themes, all the songs, all the instrumentals, a scattering of stories too. The music is a touch folky, a little whimsical, classically nostalgic, humble, hip, witty and occasionally camp (Gulliver's song). Fingerbobs was possibly the last remaining unreleased score from TVs golden era, and finally, thanks to this first ever release, we can now enjoy it whenever or wherever we want. Top stuff.
