LISTEN TO PEVENSEY WHALE SONG ON SOUNDCLOUD

Zoom Time: Perhaps the best Peter Barron work to date

Editor of the local broadsheet newspaper, the Pevensey Bay Journal, Simon Montgomery, said “this is perhaps the best Peter Barron work to date, only four tracks, but each one a gem.

“What we see is his ability to compose and write music and lyrics working within number of genres,. The work demonstrates real accomplishment.

“The last song about the Pevensey Whale is a gem of some description. Kind of early seventies/punk inspired take on the story of the Pevensey Whale, and amazingly, historically accurate. There is mention of the size of the whale and the coastguard that first saw the monster mammal on the shoreline in November 1865 and his name really was Bill Richards

“People will remember that when the Pevensey Timeline Association discovered the words to the skipping rhyme that was sung by school children in playgrounds in Sussex in November 1865 about the whale, the rhyme was recreated by the BBC.

“They came to Pevensey and Westham Primary school and recreated the rhyme with the schoolchildren reciting the rhyme, the first time that the words had been heard since 1865. The broadcast was seen by a million or more people on both BBC South East News and BBC Look East.

“Here we have got an original punk inspired song and lyric crafted by the masterful Peter Barron. Perhaps what we are about to see is a return to the story of the Pevensey Whale by the BBC broadcast again to a big audience.

“Who knows, maybe the Pevensey Whale song is a hit in the making. This is certainly an interesting song and would not be the first time that a famous local historical incident has been turned into song”.

“I could see this song as part of a documentary or part of an advertising campaign, who knows even a hit for the originality in the song”.
