    How is ukilaily spelt?

    There were some dudes playing the Ukalaily on 'This Morning' yesterday and I was trying to google them but I didn't catch their name. So I tried several spellings of 'ukalaily' but to no avail.

    Anyone got any brainwaves?

    Found them! they are called 'The Ukulele Orchestra'

    what a pants name

    "A Ukes show has typically involved performers in black tuxedos and dresses (the flavour of the London Symphony Orchestra and the Kronos Quartet), sitting in formation like a chamber group or a swing band, reworking classics of rock'n'roll, punk, jazz and classical music. In may instances this reworking has revealed the vacuity of the original versions, the triviality of pop music and the self-reverential state of musical taste in the post-modernist period. It has also revealed that audiences like to have a good time with the Ukes and that musical intelligence and a light-hearted approach are not incomparable with acoustic versions of heavy metal, performance art techniques and the homage of a live karaoke."

    They do a cover of THE CLASH apparently

    Those crazy This Morning folk; one morning they instruct on virgin defloration, the next they wax lyrical about punk covering ukulele outfits.

    I plan on beating him to death with his kids. I'll use them as a bludgeon on his face. -
