Midfield General’s Teddy Bear by Kidda

David Knight - 22nd Apr 2009

Damian Harris, aka The Midfield General, has been obsessed with Red Sovine's shameless country & western tearjerker Teddy Bear ever since he heard it on Kenny Everett's Top 10 Worst Records Of All Time when he was a kid. So he remade it for his excellent album General Disarray, with vocal stylings supplied by actor Ralph Brown (yes, Danny from Withnail And I, and much more).

Now, Damian's DJ/animator pal Ste McGregor aka Kidda - who directed his great video for <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watchv=9HEPUlW3yng">Midfielding</a>, featuring a pre-<em>Boosh</em> Noel Fielding on vocals, some years back - has realised it for the screen. So for anyone who likes trucking, remembers what CB radio was, and is partial to songs that make them weep, try this on for size. It's wonderful, and if you don't have a lump in your throat after two minutes you are almost certainly made of wood. http://www.youtube.com/watchv=DFDYBTs2g80[/youtube]
