bigfatfrog I can't really explain why do I love his music, I guess when I heard him for the first time, I just started loving it instantly. Favorite track: I'm not French.

Let me introduce you Mr.Happy Feet! I know they like them boogie, i know they like Rocksteady too but once they're feeling groovy, there is nothing i can do to keep'em still! Let me introduce you Mr.Happy Feet, singing sweet melodies let me introduce you Mr.Happy Feet, he's cheering up the street. They wanna dance with Susie, they wanna dance with Marilou, but once they're feeling groovy, there is nothing i can do to keep'em still!

RIchie, my Richie if you wanna get busy you better get a new pair of shoes. Stop to be hanging barefoot on the street doing your old magic tricks. There is nobody who likes me and digs my songs as much as you do that's why i need you beside me, baby please don't let me down on the street. Richie, my Richie if you wanna get busy you better get a new pair of shoes. Stop to be hanging barefoot on the street doing your old magic tricks. There is nobody i trust in the music industry i need someone looking after me and if there is a man that is you. Richie, my Richie if you wanna get busy you better get a new pair of shoes. Stop to be hanging barefoot on the street doing your old magic tricks. There is nobody who likes me and digs my songs as much as you do that's why i need you beside me, baby please don't let me down on the street.

I don't know why but all these people think i'm French. Don't drink red wine, don't even smoke a single cigarette. Don't even like cheese, 'cause of my girlfriend's taste: she doesn't even like the smell of it. I don't know why but all these people speak in French "Bonjour Madame, bonsoir Monsieur, aujourd'hui ca va? J'espere tres bien!" Don't even like cheese, 'cause of my girlfriend's taste: she doesn't even like the shape of it! I'm not French, my little baby don't even smoke a single cigarette, really Believe me when i tell you i'm not... I don't know why but all these people walk around with a baguette If i had to choose i wouldn't keep it under my armpit, but when it comes to food we know there is no etiquette if you wanna eat the snail, i don't regret I'm not French, my little baby don't even smoke a single cigarette, really Believe me when i tell you i'm not French, my baby don't even smoke a single cigarette, really

Jessica King... Jessica King... Jessica King... She likes them lollipops, she wants them all day long she likes banana in the morning and strawberry in the late afternoon Jessica King... Jessica King... Jessica King... (mouth trumpet) She used to hate her job, wanted to kill her boss she used to stay up all night long picking calls and helping out the neighborhood. Jessica King... Jessica King... Jessica King... She's been around the world and now she's feeling stronger she's been to Portugal, Colombia, Australia, Ecuador, Bolivia and Peru Jessica King... Jessica King... Jessica King... (mouth trumpet) And now she's come back home she's like a brand new woman still likes banana in the morning and strawberry in the late afternoon Jessica King... Jessica King... Jessica King... She's like my little sister, God knows how much i missed her she's such a tipsy-topsy lollipoppy gipsy and she makes me feel so good Jessica King... Jessica King... Jessica King...

about

Leaving a recession hit Italy behind, a gardener finds himself out of work in the middle of the winter. With just £100 in his pockets he turns up on his friend's doorstep in Norwich to begin a new chapter in his life.
Armed just with his guitar and an handful of original songs he started busking on the streets singing for his supper.
Since his arrival in England he made Norwich his home, became a full time musician and never looked back.

To this day he's still moaning about the separate hot and cold tap, but at least he's able to drink 3 pints of beer without passing out.
However he's still trying to convince the Brits that he's not French.

This EP is the chronicle of those early days.

Miserable Man is a one man band project that started as an idea on a tiny Indonesian island. One man feeling Jamaican inside - getting older with a smile on his face, waking up in front of the azure sea, and sleeping under coconut trees...
He likes to blend pop, as a universal communicative way of making music, with Ska, Reggae and Roots.
