Would you let this man write a song about you?

Pete Fij will be playing a special one-off event on Thursday 26th April at Coast Cafe on Worthing seafront as part of the Special Treat night (tickets £3 on the door), where he will be playing a selection of his songs and discussing the song-writing process & the stories behind them. He will be asking members of the audience to chat to him about stories and incidents in their life, and he plans to pick on one of those tales and turn it into a song which he will reveal at the end of the night.

Pete says "I've never done this before, so it's a bit of a leap into the unknown - it all depends on 2 crucial things; firstly if people are prepared to open up to me and tell me about personal stories from their life, and secondly if I am able to then sit down and turn those experiences into a song within a strict 2 hour time limit" 

 If you would like to have a song written about you by Pete, then get close to opening time, as the night starts at 7.30pm and Pete will be first on at around 8pm, before returning to the stage towards the end of the night to hopefully reveal the new song (or alternatively explain where it all went wrong).

Full details of the night can be found here. You can also keep up to date with all things Bickers & Fij-shaped on the dedicated Pete Fij / Terry Bickers  Facebook site.

  1. Many thanks to Ed & Vanya, who came along and allowed Pete to write a song about how they first met. It was a bit seat-of-your pants stuff, with the song only being finished with about 5 minutes before it was due to be performed, but it seemed to work and the couple who were the subject of the song were still talking to Mr Fij at the end of the night, so it has to be considered a success. Once he has recovered from the process, Pete might repeat the experiment again - e-mail at if you have a specific story about your life or someone else's that you think might make a good song, and like the page to be kept informed of future events.
