The Bastard Sons of Dennis: Sometimes

The Bastard Sons of Dennis have another song completed, and it is one of their oldest, dating right back to the summer of 1994. The song is called Sometimes and it has been added to their Cherry Smoke Empire collection, which you can listen to by clicking here. We have also added the song to our default music player which is widely available across the site.

This song first appeared on the 1992 album Need for Not by Levitation. The name of the track on that album is Resist.

Terry Bickers was the frontman of the band Levitation and he and Mr Lijkkes were at university together. Mr Lijkkes had a hand in the writing of this song back in those days. Mr Nejsan had never heard the Levitation version of the song and created his parts independently.

This song was first performed by the Bastard Sons of Dennis at The Cavern, Exeter in the summer of 1994. They have always referred to the song as being called Sometimes. Therefore we would say that this song is by Levitation with the arrangement by The Bastard Sons of Dennis.

Mr Lijkkes tells a short ad lib tale at the start of this song that is different every time. Usually it is a rather grizzly tale about Spiderlings. This particular tale was captured in 2009 and is one of the earliest of those ad libbed tales, before the Spiderlings became a regular feature.

Sometimes has amused, entertained and moved audiences on many occasions during live performances by The Bastard Sons of Dennis. We hope you enjoy listening to the new recording of this wonderful song.
