I didn’t know that Jacob Rees-Mogg was a father to six children, did you? Apparently the most recent arrival, a little lad, has been named Sixtus Dominic Boniface Christopher. There’s a name to send you into a spin!
Sixtus is a named shared by five popes. The most recent, in 1590. Bet you’re glad I told you that. The closest I could get was Sixto Rodriguez, aka ‘Sugarman’. A class act.
Another class act, and I’ve only just become familiar with him, is Johnny Flynn. Fellow ‘Detectorists’ devotees will probably know that he sings the theme song, and appears as Johnny Piper in episode three of the first series.
So my ears are full of Sillion at the moment. No, not the shiny soil that’s been turned by the plough. But Johnny’s current album. Well worth a listen.
The Rees-Moggs probably had to go deep for Sixtus. Finding ‘Sugarman’ was quite a task. But “Sillion” has risen to the surface with ease.
