Real life (TM) is a particular culprit in getting in the way, always limiting the amount of time available to devote to the Wonderful World Of ButterflyPolite.  It is [...]

If you recall, Andy provided a slightly twisted little song (Happy Families Fade) for the Very Us Artist’s My First Sing-Along Dictionary album in February.
Andy has roped Sarah into his dodgy affairs and together they have giggled a lot and recorded a song ‘Anonymous’ as the prize to a competition based on this amazing caption:

February’s Single.

February’s single is a special Valentine’s edition, for lovers who like strings.  There’s oodles of strings on the brand-spanking-new song ‘Look At Me Now’ , and as a B-side there’s a little unreleased gem from the ButetrflyPolite vaults … Sarah plus string Quartet doing the song ‘James’ (originally found on the album Http).

Having watched Rage Against The Machine romp home to the no.1 spot this yule, we’ve decided to enter the race quite very late with The Christmas E.P. a special bumper edition in our year of monthly songs.
Christmastime (is a time to be polite) kicks off, a seasonal song to sing whilst roasting your chestnuts on [...]

Eyes Tight Shut c/w R.E.S.P.E.C.T.E.T.C. is the second in the year of ButterflyPolite singles.
…and is available here for the princely some of one english pound.  (a.k.a. £1)
Eyes tight shut has been a live favourite for a while - and always causes some embarrassment with it’s awkward ‘U’ sound in the title for Andy to try [...]
