For those of you just joining us, who have listened to the song and are now wondering what the heck is going on, we're here to soothe all you troubles away - Oh Argh Oh Argh Ay! Because, despite what sounds like the pirate from Lazytown
singing lyrics that were written by Popeye and set to music by Weird Al Yankovich's band, this is the Wurzels, the founders of the "Scrumpy and Western" genre.
Wait, what's Scrumpy and Western? It's a British genre centered around England's West Country region. It is a humorous folk-music genre all the way, using the area's local accent, dialect, and attitude to sing about farming, cider, dung, cows, combine harvesters, and other aspects of the British farming industry. It usually also parodies American country & western music, or if not then other popular US and UK genres. The lyrics typically involve a good deal of bawdiness, with plenty of drinking and getting under the skirt of a few farmer's daughters.
We weren't kidding when we said they founded "Scrumpy and Western" - that's the title of their 1967 EP. Look for it near the bottom of the singles listing on their official site
