Hi I’m Lorraine Bowen and welcome to my NEWS page OCTOBER/NOVEMBER 2018!



REVIEW from Captain Sensible

Very pleased to receive a glowing review from The Damned’s Captain Sensible the other day…

He’d been watching my audition from Britain’s Got Talent on YouTube and said…

Lorraine Bowen – “The Crumble Song”
She’s a mate of mine from Brighton, a pretty wacky town, full of weirdos — like us I guess. Somehow Lorraine got persuaded to do one of those awful TV talent shows, where she caused a bit of a sensation with this here song. Marching onto the stage with her Casio organ, and using an ironing board as a keyboard stand, away she went… “everybody’s good at cooking something — and I’m good at cooking crumble, in fact I’ve got one in the oven… would you like some”… and the look on the judges faces was priceless. What gave them the right to judge anything was the unasked question Lorraine’s pisstake of a performance seemed to be asking — she certainly managed to divide public opinion down the middle pretty much. For those out there who think plastic surgery enhanced, boob job sporting but plausible sounding karaoke singers are entertaining she was a total joke… but for the rest of us it was nice to see a bit of old fashioned British ‘don’t give a f**k’ eccentricity on prime time TV. And that doesn’t happen nearly often enough.

Lorraine is an extremely talented, and very nice lady… available for weddings, bar mitzvahs, biker bashes, etc, etc.

I laughed like a drain!  THANKS CAPTAIN and have a good tour!
