Good Ole Boy Author Chris Fountain Offers Satiric Personal View Of Life In A ‘Whalefare’ State In New Memoir ‘Great Britain Blues’

The “Great” Britain Blues is a lyrically riveting, ribald autobiography of a Bombardier-guzzling, carousing ex-U.S. Airman who lives sparingly outside of London in a country he calls a “whalefare” state.

Chris Fountain, originally from Ocala, Florida, whose childhood nickname was CAPTAIN REDNECK, writes his memoir as he speaks in gen-x lingo with a Southern drawl.

When he’s not writing songs, Fountain works his “bollocks” off to provide for his family, as a steel “polisher” “I just use a hand grinder all day cleaning up the welds that the fabricators did,” he says.  Today he’s worried President Obama is leading America down the same sorry road toward a “whalefare society” like Great Britain.

“In the U.S., you get three times more for your dollar than you do for your pound here, plus you can get a garden (yard) big enough for your kids to play in, behind a house that doesn’t look like a f ____n’ doll house. And you don’t have to have the heater on all year round, just to f ___’n stay alive.”

Fountain says he prays President Obama won’t crash land America into an entitlement quagmire like not so “Great” (anymore) Britain that’s taxing its “subjects” insufferably and stunting their initiative to support themselves.

Here is a Welfare State
So don’t vote Obama, hell no lord no, please not again!
‘Cause very soon, we will be too, please not the USA!

Bawdy, vulgar in spots, with misogynisticly-sprinkled invective against birds he meets in bars, and occasionally marries, the book subtitled: “Life in a Welfare State,” published by Raider Publishing International, is blazingly original in style and lyrics that take a vitriolic, often hilariously funny, satiric look at his own plights and the “whalefare” state that he says the British Isles have succumbed to.

Many failed entrepreneurial parachute jumps ago, Fountain was stationed in England in the USAF, and since then a series of misadventures invariably land him in a heap of troubles that keep bringing on the blues, a wife who allegedly cheats on him, a bank that tries to clip him and two precious children he’s devoted to as each chapter contains passionate, superbly poetic lyrics to 49 songs echoing his points about life, religion, taxes, weather and welfare.

For those unemployed men and women struggling through the hope and change of Obama times, Fountain sees America heading toward the same overtaxed land and welfare morass that’s gripped not so merry ole England, as today more is spent on welfare than on any other U.S. government program.

Originally from Ocala, Florida, Fountain’s childhood nickname was CAPTAIN REDNECK, which accounts for his writing his memoir as he speaks in gen-x lingo with a Southern drawl, said Tom Madden, CEO of TransMedia Group (www.transmediagroup.com).

Madden said his firm will publicize Fountain’s concerns about President Obama leading America down the same sorry road toward a “whalefare society” as Great Britain.  “Fountain prays President Obama won’t crash land America into an entitlement quagmire like Great Britain taxing its ‘subjects’ like there’s no tomorrow.”

Breakthrough Author Chris Fountain Adds Another Decimal to the Dewey Decimal System with the First Autobiography in History Written Entirely in Songs

Breakthrough Author Chris Fountain adds another decimal to the Dewey Decimal System with the first autobiography in history written entirely in songs!

Literary history has been made again this week by a small town Vet from Sparr, Florida when he published his autobiography, The “Great” Britain Blues, as it is the first autobiography in history in which the story is told in a series of songs. It’s also the first time that any book was written in Generation X English, of the Deep South variety.

Chris Fountain, nicknamed “Captain Redneck” in High School, joined the USAF in 1994 and was subsequently sent to Great Britain, where he spent his entire four year career. And for a small town boy from Sparr, FL, who had only left the state twice, it was very exciting… at least, in the Air Force days, getting paid in US Dollars and buying everything on base tax free in US Dollars. But after marrying a British girl he unfortunately fell in love with, living and working in England for more than 10 years as a British person does, after divorcing, only there to be a father to his kids and hating his decision to marry their mother more and more every day, while paying the Queen’s rate of taxes and spending $10 per gallon on gas… Chris got the Blues! That’s for sure.

And this book, his life’s story, is nothing short of unimaginable. It’s laugh-out-loud funny, thought-provoking, offending in places, and 100% original! And it was written in only two short weeks while the author worked a full time job! There has never been a book in the history of mankind written in such a way, and there probably aren’t any other life stories as unbelievable as this one!

Its impact on the literary world could significantly contribute to history’s recollection of the early 21st century as well as Chris’ unfortunate brethren, the Generation X.

The below three chorus arrangements, from Chapter 4, “The 4th of July”, is a good sampling of the battle he waged as a proud Southern American living in England:

It’s the fourth of July, yeah, it’s the fourth of July
And my baby girl askin’ me, to turn da heat up high
I tell no lie, lord, I tell no lie
It’s the fourth of July, yeah summer time, and she about to cry

Didn’t I say lord, it’s the fourth of July
Should be eatin’ dem ribs, should be a hundred and five!
Didn’t I say lord, I gotz the heat up high
And we ain’t wantin’ no frost bite, so we stayin’ inside!

Didn’t I say lord, it’s the fourth of July
Should be lightin’ bottle rockets, should be a hundred and five
Didn’t I say lord, I gotz the heat up high
Gotz to keep my baby warm, gotz to stay alive!

This book contains 49 chapters, each ending with a song written—one as mind blowing as the next one—full of twists and turns that will certainly get you on the edge of your seat, turning pages the whole way.
