This is an apology for a mistake I made in the credits for the album “Bones of Contention”. The tune “Midgets on Acid” is based on a wonderful jig called “Jump at the Sun” by John Kirkpatrick.
I contacted Mr Kirkpatrick when we started recording the track to ask his permission to use it. He kindly agreed on the condition that I credited him using these exact words – “JUMP AT THE SUN – by JOHN KIRKPATRICK – World Copyright © SQUEEZER MUSIC”
Alas, somehow in the confusion and stress of getting the artwork ready for print I did not write what I was asked to. Instead I wrote “…by John FITZpatrick,”
Yes, eegit I am and I put my hands up and ask for forgiveness. I beleive very strongly that musicians should be credited properly for their work.
So to make a small attempt at righting a stupid mistake;
Midgets on Acid is based on the jig
