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.

Track Name: Mr.Happy Feet
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!

Let me introduce you Mr.Happy Feet, singing sweet melodies
let me introduce you Mr.Happy Feet, he's cheering up the street.

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.

Let me introduce you Mr.Happy Feet, he's cheering up the street.
Track Name: Richie, my Richie
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.
Track Name: I'm not French
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...

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...
