Benjamin Shaw #5 - Twisting Turning Killing Learning

Benjamin Shaw and the Furious Five! That's right! Here's the 5th installment of the Shaw-A-Thon. Five free songs in five explosive days.

Here's an old classic, Benjamin Shaw's 5th "Twisting Turning Killing Learning" which you can download HERE.

Back in August 2008, A Mr Nic Dalton of Lemonheads fame wrote about a 3 track Benjamin Shaw demo, naming it as his 'CD of the week'. "Twisting..." was featured, and Mr Dalton had this to say about the song:

"'Twisting turning killing learning' has the hushed tones you would be expecting but then he breaks out - in a loud voice! - and sings something about listening to a Dr Hook record. How cool is that? This song has a lovely and memorable melody and haunting piano and brushed drums." (full review HERE).

He would also quite kindly put Benjamin Shaw's "I Got the Pox, the Pox is what I Got" EP on his Half A Cow Records webshop - HERE.

I might leave it at that, a '90s rock star will ALWAYS be able to tell it better than a 23 year old from London. So there you have it, case closed.
