Wobbles on Cobbles

by Syd Briscoe


Hak Baker: “Wobbles on Cobbles” - 5 mins 27s

Hak Baker's 'Wobbles on Cobbles' is a masterclass in storytelling - a spoken word track which unfolds over a gentle, acoustic backdrop as it documents a few 'jumped-up' weeks in its author's life. Fans of Mike Skinner et al. will appreciate the song's conversational tone, as the mundane and unusual are deftly sketched.

The accompanying promo is equally laid back - a quiet and considered piece of filmmaking from director Jon E Price. Shots of Baker performing are interspersed with him wandering around a deserted London, culminating in a solo fag break on a bench as night falls. Intriguing stuff which rewards patient viewers (and listeners).
