The group behind the protest song for the recently moved ‘Rexie’ the Caskieberran dinosaur, has a new song about another piece of town art taken from the area.

The Tam Tam Club’s latest ode is in honour of the Horse and Chariot, moved last week form Waverly Drive to the roundabout at Lidl supermarket.

Called ‘A Horse wi nae weans’, the song is written to the tune of ‘A Horse With No Name’, originally by America.

Tam Short is one half of the duo, who previously wrote ‘You Rexie Thing’.

He spoke about the latest song and the buzz the last one created: “I spoke to someone when I was going round the area with the petition for Rexie. He was a council worker and he told me that the Horse and Chariot was next to be moved.

“I went home and wrote the song in no time really. It was quite quickly done.

“What’s happening with the Tam Tam Club is we seem to be attracting university and high school kids.

“It’s not just kids though, I was in Markinch today walking past some council workers and one of them was singing ‘You Rexie Thing’!

“A lot of people have been downloading the song and we have been getting quite positive feedback, which is great.”
