The Alex Cornish Project

About Me

We are the Year Six class at a primary school near Bath who have become fairly well known now for our Class Band Project. This year our project actually focusses on a solo artist instead of a band as all of our classroom work is based on Alex Cornish. Dermot O'Leary officially announced our 2008 project with Alex on BBC Radio Two on 19th January saying, "Alex Cornish, we've been playing quite a lot of recently, is an absolutely top lad! And he's the new class project from the Timsbury School who we've had on the show a couple of times, following on from Ghosts and The Magic Numbers." Ghosts visited us in March 2007 to play a gig in our classroom. The Magic Numbers allowed us to record our own version of their song Forever Lost which was then released as a b-side track on their single I See You, You See Me. Alex Cornish and his band visited us on 10th September 2008 to play a gig in our classroom. It was an amazing occasion for us all and Alex is indeed 'an absolutely top lad'! Archie was allowed to accompany Alex on the drums for My Word What A Mess! It was fantastic! Check out the videos to see what a brilliant moment it was, with Alex shouting out, "Simon, you're fired!" at his proper drummer, Simon Berriman! Thank you so much Alex - and Bevis, Simon, Chris and Pete too. We hope to see you again soon! Classroom gig setlist: Scotland The Brave, My Word What A Mess, My Word What A Mess (with Archie on drums), I’m On The Right Side, Until The Traffic Stops, This One’s For You ENCORE: My Word What A Mess (with Archie on drums)
