Okay I am a Marmite-loving folkie from Liverpool so I’m loving this page and your recording of 8 Days a Week (which I shared on my Facebook page). I’m burning to know why you are the Marmite Ukelele club – please tell!
Marmite Uke Club

Thanks for sharing our music, it’s much appreciated 🙂
The Marmite name is simply because of my love of Marmite. When I first took up the uke, I found a song posted by an Aussie about the joys of Vegemite. I wrote a friendly response about how Marmite is better. My fellow founding members of the club wanted to name it in honour of my song, and despite my protestations, the name stuck. The song was pretty lame, but we can’t get rid of the name now… 😀

How excellent is that. Can I hear this Marmite song anywhere? I got Marmite into a song once actually. I wrote it for my American friend, who’s a real character. Among the many things that define her, one is her absolute hate of Marmite. We’re talking pure, unadulterated HATE.

This is quirky and awesome. Kudos to you. And by the way – you have a lovely voice. Very individual.

Anna, I have a relation in America who loves his Marmite, but cant get it, so I send him some, only trouble is cost of postage far exceeds price of Marmite. So I would like to send him a rendering of your song. Eddy
