Back in the day when music was on vinyl,or tape, digitally meant doing something with your digits, your fingers. If you were a pick pocket you would lift that wallet with your fingers, you would lift it digitally, and you might slip it back in there digitally too with your finely trained fingers.Back then a particularly fine pickpocket might be given a nickname that reflected their skills. Such as “Fingers” for example.
Now digitally means something altogether different. And yet the nickname “Fingers” remains popular in some circles. Which circles are these you might possibly be asking? It could be that you have heard that Martin “Fingers” Fisher plays bass guitar on the track Planetwalker on this here digitally released Cal Doonican album. At this point you have probably found yourself checking your pockets. Relax,this Fingers got his name for a completely different digital reason, his guitar prowess…probably anyway.No definitely. Have a listen to Planetwalker. That’s fine bass playing isn’t it. Goes beautifully with Delroy Brown’s fantastic drumming on that track don’t you agree. Delroy “The Actor” Brown gets his nickname from his other job, as an actor funnily enough, see him in Scott and Bailey for example. Strangely he once played a sailor who had his fingers trapped in a freak at sea accident. He was digitally challenged for almost the entire episode of Casualty.Anyway…
