Issue 4 Could 'Dis Be Cane Shum A Different View Of Keynsham www.caneshum.co.uk January 2004
SOME WORDS ABOUT COULD 'DIS BE CANE SHUM

'Come to Keynsham, please. Oh go on....'

Could 'Dis Be Cane Shum is published approximately once a month from a cargo container perched in a shady port somewhere South of Taiwan. It is provided as a means of escape for people with not a lot better to do. Whilst every effort is made to be as funny as possible, we are not reponsible for occasional lapses into social commentary and political piss-take. Our inspiration came directly from Bristol satire barons That Be Bristle. Improve your life no end by visiting them immediately after viewing this site!


ALBERT MILLS
Albert Mills FORMER GARDENING correspondent for the now-defunct 'Somerset Oracle', Albert is one of the two founding editors of this fabled tome. His claim to fame is that he was once in the audience at the filming of BBC's 'Nationwide' program, an accolade which alone was enough to land him the job at Could 'Dis Be Cane Shum. He is the author of one book, 'Overnight Failure', and is separated from wife Estelle, with no accountable children. MORE

CHARLTON BOTTOM
Charlton Bottom CHARLTON BOTTOM once famously claimed, improbably, to have been present when the Romans were last in the town, and is the website's other founding editor. A former member of 70's glam rock band The Mutz Nutz, Charlton began his journalistic career as a stringer for the lowly 'Ubley Gazette', during which time he covered the story of the infamous Cider Drought of 1985. He has four children and is blissfully married to his beloved wife of 15 years, Rosy.

ANNA CACIA-COURT
Anna Cacia-Court THE DELIGHTFUL Anna was the first writer to be recruited to the team after she knocked on Charlton's door late one night to ask for assistance with her broken down VW Beetle. The former Arts & Entertainment correspondent for London's 'Capital Punishment' magazine, Ms Cacia-Court has been resident in the town for over a decade. Much-travelled, Anna is mother to six children and is happily married to Arthur, a commercial airline pilot.
