Mega Dodo Presents New Charity Album

Our friends at Mega Dodo have put together a lovely compilation of their artists performing new arrangements of nursery rhymes, and all the profits from sales of the album will benefit Save the Children. It features a number of artists we've covered.

Tiddlywinks cover artTiddlywinks features Mega Dodo regulars like The Luck of Eden Hall, Octopus Syng, Us an Them, Sky Picnic, Icarus Peel, Beautify Junkyards, and Mordecai Smyth, as well as others such as Richard Bone, Paolo Sala, Paisley Sky, Claude Cambeck, and The Telephones.

From the press release:

The album was the idea of a former work colleague who was dissatisfied with an album of nursery rhymes he bought for his young daughter. They suggested Mega Dodo ask some of its artistes to record their versions of classic nursery rhymes. The idea was simple, they could do what they liked with the tune but had to stick to the original lyrics. Naturally, some strayed but we'll let them off because each and every contribution is full of fun and joy.
