December 22nd 2008: Mosquito riseandshine.tv/2008/12/22/mosquito/

This song is based on the peculiar story of the Finnish mosquito whose ingested blood was used as DNA proof of an alleged thief’s presence at the scene of a crime.

The burst of paranoid low-life rock which came whining out of this show is enough to make anyone wear a hat with corks on the brim.


You're a new guy in town
Too small a fry to be put down
Can't say how you get around
But I can hear your buzzing sound
Dont know how you are so quick
But can we trust you, private Dick
When you present your evidence
I'm going to hold you in contempt

Mosquito, you bit me
And just then it hit me
Mosquito they used you
They'll show you no mercy

They used you Mosquito...


from Rise and Shine: Breakfast with Inspiration, track released March 20, 2009
Written and peformed by Dan Brittain, Dean Whitbread with annoying bites from the Rise and Shine audience.
