We have been fans of Cobbled Moth's musical output for some considerable time and when we came across this new song called 'Bitter' we just immediately loved it. One evening, bored with ourselves, and without him knowing, we decided to become his backing band... fortunately he embraced our audacity!

You can hear lots more of CM's music at:


...and in the words of Cobbled Moth:

"I uploaded Bitter before but in my opinion this Bitter is better.

I wrote and played it on the 1st January 2023.

I have loved the Happy Somethings since I first heard them when in Azerbaijan about 6 years ago. We share the philosophy that if we try harder it sounds worse! I am pleased and honoured that they spontaneously decided to collaborate and be my "ramshackle" backing band on this song! a bit like with Buddy Holly's apartment tapes, only I think Buddy's were better before...and Buddy was never bitter."



I remember you sweeter
Before you were a tweeter
You were a spirit transmitter
But now you are bitter
And it's a shame
If you think no one cares
You went through pain
I know I was there
But you always had a wise word
And a kind word too
What happened to you?
I remember you taller
And now you are smaller
Over the land you would skitter
But now you're just bitter
Ooo oo now you are bitter
Ooo oo now we are bitter
And it's a shame
If we think no one cares
We went through pain
Yet always stayed fair
And we always had a wise word
And a kind word too
The disillusionment grew and grew and grew
I remember you fatter
And it didn't matter
In the days before twitter
When you were not bitter
I remember you jolly
In the rain with no brolly
I remember you shiny
Your wit was perfectly briny
I remember you noble
Before the dragon went global
You were never a quitter
Hope you stop being bitter
