So a first for this blog…..Skiffle!
From 1985 and on the Cheshire label, In Tape (owned by Ex- Fall, Marc Riley) this was from Birmingham duo, Terry Lilley And Gerry Colvin. (and Sue Richardson on washboard and backing vocals) Proving that not everyone was embracing music technology at the time. The sounds owes a lot to Lonnie Donegan with short, sharp songs featuring double bass, washboard and acoustic guitar. As featured on the kid’s TV programme “Poparound” (no, don’t remember but do remember this track.) Three other tracks include the tragic story, “Joey”, about a boy addicted to heroin. “The Good, The Bad, The Usherette” is about unrequited love in a cinema done in Billy Holly style. “Wolfman’s Request” is traditional skiffle and could of been recorded in the 50’s.
