And it's hi-ho Sheffield Wednesday !

You're everywhere and no where, baby
That's where you're at
Going down a bumpy hillside
In your hippy hat

Flying across the country
And getting fat
Saying everything is groovy
When your tyres are flat

And it's hi-ho Sheffield Wednesday
And away you go now, baby
I see your sun is shining
But I won't make a fuss
Though it's obvious

Flies are in your pea soup, baby
They're waving at me
Anything you want is yours now
Only nothing is for free

Lies are gonna get you some day
Just wait and see
So open up your beach umbrella
While you're watching TV

And it's hi-ho Sheffield Wednesday
And away you go now, baby
I see your sun is shining
But I won't make a fuss
Though it's obvious

And it's hi-ho Sheffield Wednesday
And away you go now, baby
I see your sun is shining
But I won't make a fuss
Though it's obvious

And it's hi-ho Sheffield Wednesday
And away you go now, baby
I see your sun is shining
But I won't make a fuss
Though it's obvious

OSFEST 2012 Videos & Pics ...

Good afternoon, and what a glorious afternoon !

Here's a few quick tid-bits to tell you about ... I made a sneaky return to the live arena this last weekend to have fun at a little festival in Derbyshire ... saw some old friends, some old faces, but everyone's looking fresh and glad to be alive ... I am at least !

Here's a snazzy little vid captured by the inimitable Paul Bednall ...

... and click through to my Matt Henshaw Official facebook page where you'll be able to see some snaps taken by his lovely lady wife !

Thanks for having me Paul ... and thanks to all the lovely people who made it a nice evening ... come and say 'ello next time ...

Love & that,
Matt Henshaw.

August here again ... (a quick update) ...

Howdy folks,

Hope you're enjoying your Jubilee, Euro, Olympic Summer ... plenty to do, plenty to keep busy with and I'm hoping every action you take is altruistic and brings happiness to everyone especially those around you ...

So, what do you want to know from me? Working on the website at present, and an archive of Matt Henshaw artistic materials from 2002 onwards ... I've done an awful lot of stuff ... hard to believe that I've been recording myself or writing stuff or drawing things for over ten years ... what shall I share with you all ?? Well, there's around 50 odd Matt Henshaw & ReggiiMental tracks that have never emerged from The Deepest Cellar (we wasn't just drinking tea down there you know, lots of writing and plenty of vocal takes!) ... and there's plenty of features from the likes of Joey G-Zus, Chris Goring, Devas, Saynt Luke, TLG, Unfriendly Neighbours, BiggaMan, Flava Dan, Syndrome, Emma-Louise, Banana Klan and many more ...


See you soon with a new ...

All my lovin',
Matt Henshaw x

I Love Walking Around the Midlands ...

... with an iPod full of Ska music, I feel like I'm in a Shane Meadows film !

It's true, I do. Always keep a bag of satsumas close to hand too ...

So, the wheels are in motion. The foundations of my online empire are being laid, lay slain to all those who have come before me, I shall cast forth and hence forth a righteous blade and slash with a fearless energy and almighty anger on all those who doubt the power of the online word and a tickle from the feather duster of Matt Henshaw ... basically kids, what I'm trying to say is, I've got a new website in the pipelines, loads of ideas to put into place online, not just music, but there is music being packaged and processed as we speak, but there's tonnes more where that came from ... it's going to be monumental, and you'll be the first to hear about it ... I Promise !

In the meantime, here's a picture of me graduating from the University of Leicester ...
... hopefully you can tell it's me from the chin ... and, also, you wait there all afternoon in ridiculous heat dressed like a div looking to join some mysterious cult and then you get on stage and all you get is a handshake ! Goodness, gracious me ... all good fun though, and it's nice to feel decorated, honoured and such.

Spread the Love, see you on the other side,
Matt Henshaw BA Esq.

All My Best & All My Apologies ...

Sorry I haven't blogged properly in so long ... I thought I'd blog now though as I've just gotten round to replying to couple of blog comments on this 'ere blog dating way back to the end of May ... I feel terrible but I just thought I'd reblog them here as you can see they're from two of the best Matt Henshaw (Censored) fans that there ever was, and to prove that I'm still alive ...

Here's the original blog post and the comments below ... have a read ... or have a read below if you're too lazy to click and don't mind having no stylish text to read, just the plain old blog entry typeface ...

Congratulations certainly sounds good! :) x

Well done dear boy. As a small tribute, I thought I'd mention an old tune of yours on my blog - because it still make me want to pogo round the living room every time I hear it. I'm sure you know which one it is........

Matt Henshaw10 July 2012 23:34
Thanks folks!

Two of my most loyal supporters right there I'm sure.

Actually graduated today, so that's officially that with the University of Leicester.

Johnny, Johnny Boy, you're such a jolly boy !

I might have been sure it would have been that one Rob, I haven't heard it for so long, and the video I had all but forgotten about! Nice One !

Good memories ... plenty more where that came from, stay tuned, and hopefully I'll have my new website up and running this summer,packed full of memories, and new stuff of course, and just general all round goodness ...

Apologies to you both, and anyone else who bothers to read the comments bits on my blog (you're my favourite people in the world, by the way!) I've been busy with the arbitrary and mundane of life of late ... well, for most people it would be mundane, but when you're Matt Henshaw you can find excitement on every turn! So, I'm having a good one, and I hope you are too ...

Speak Soon!

In the Land of Summer Sun ...

Matthew Henshaw 1st Class BA (Hons.) Esq. here ... sounds nice doesn't it??

I haven't blogged all month ... been busy on the Twitter though, you probably should be following me on there, if you're on there that is, or Facebook I suppose, everyone's on there right? ... except me ...

What to tell? I've been busy writing and recording this month. It's all going in a pot and I'll be serving something or another up when the time is right. Like Toots said let the "pressure drop" we aren't using a pressure cooker here, like Louis Armstrong said "we have all the time in the world".

Stay Cool Cats & Pigeons,
Matt Henshaw x

PS. here's me, do you think the Leicester sunsheeeiiiine has treated me well ...

Hard at work in the studio ...

If you're following me on Twitter you'd know by now how hard I've been working this month putting together some wonderful sounding recordings. Lugging guitars and all sorts around the fine (and sometimes not so fine!) London Underground ... questions? Why do some people just smell?? And why do they insist on such close proximity??? Also, if the sign says "trains every 3-6 minutes" then why does the screen say "next train 8 minutes" ?!??

Anyways, here's a picture of me tinkering on the piano ... piano? That's right, Messr. Henshaw ie. me is playing almost all of the instruments (so apologies in advance if the standard is a bit shaky, if you get to hear 'em that is, session musicians might just arrive like the cavalry any minute now and play all over my nonsense) ... vocals, guitar, piano, bass, string arrangements, percussion and song-writing duties all fall at my feet ...

Until next time x

Updates to come...

Sorry for the lack of blogs of late ...

You'll get plenty to read about in good time. I'm working on a few things and a few things need working on.

In the meantime, I am trying to tweet as regularly as I can, so follow me on there - @matthenshaw11 - but do bear in mind that mainly I tweet about football and other sports, and more often than not it's Sheffield Wednesday flavoured ... ha ha! So, see you there ...

All the love,
Matt Henshaw x

PS. I'm definitely still alive, here's some visual evidence to prove it, not sure about the solemn face or the wonky angle, just snapped a quick picture with my laptop's webcam ... enjoy ...

My Mum turned 50 this weekend ...

Sorry for the lack of updates through 2012 ... my alter-ego is working so hard that I am distracted, purposefully I have to say, from writing up my Adventures in the world wide Wonderland.

As the title of the blog says, my mum did indeed turn 50 this weekend. Everyone is getting older, even as a fan of history, evolution and time itself, I find this strange, confusing and surreal. Just thought I'd fill you in on that thought. Anyone else agree?

Anyways, don't worry about it. We'll all find the path meant to be tread. And I shouldn't be worried, Peter Pan right? Not in a Michael Jackson kind of way ... here's my homage to deep focus, film noir and looking young ...

With Love,
Matt Henshaw x

PS. I must let you know I was given DJ duties for the night and having a load of 50-60 year olds dancing to The Prodigy's 'Smack My Bitch Up' and Basement Jaxx's 'Red Alert' and 4 in the morning is quite satisfying ...
