Description
Mental Cowboy Dude - with a test card - a true story as retold by sonicmagpie

Anybody who has lived in Wolverhampton will know this gentleman. Dressed as a cowboy and carrying various TV test cards, he would roam the Mander Centre continuously stopping anyone who would listen to him (and many people who would not) to tell them about the test cards.

I believe his favourite was the BBC2 test card.

Thanks to echoroom for inadvertently planting the idea of making a song about test cards in the first place

We dedicate this song to all of you

Vocals - particledots
Vocals - Mystified
Instruments - bibanova

Thank you and God Bless ya.

Beautiful music....
underlying this story song. The vocals, weaving throught the song, just add such a bonus to the entire atmosphere. I very much enjoyed this. Thanks.

Your
Ideas for songs always leave me amused and entertained and some times mind blown, you are a talent and your posse are some of the best deputies around these parts, to all of you Tanks....

Wonderful
This is very special - kind of longing, emotive, cool with the little electronic sounds - love the orchestration of it. VERY COOL!

.. the BBC2 ..

.. card was one of the best though .. you'ld have to be mental to disagree ;o) See http://www.meldrum.co.uk/mhp/testcard/bbc_test.html

.. but which version of test card F?? I just got to know .. must be one with Carole Hersee I presume ..
where is a mental cowboy dude when you need 'im eh?

.. never knew the X on the noughts & crosses board represented the approx. centre of the card. Wow ..

Great music Bryn & Cat .. your expertise in vocal production is unquestionable... very cool source of inspiration... I don't mean Steve .. lol .. although he is cool too.. asch you know what I meant.
