Thanks Axcroft; I’ll certainly think about that in a future book. I was hoping to publish my book of poetry today seeing as it’s National Poetry Day, but there’s just one poem to finish and I’ve been struggling with it. Perhaps I might base a second poetry book on music. I already have notes from Bickershaw Fest as a possible epic!

Jarvo, I don’t recall seeing Jab Jab but remember that they were from Huddersfield. Good band and don’t know why they never got a record deal. I think it was West Indian roots and possibly based on the devil carnival character (similar to the New Orleans folklore, voodoo, etc.). There were quite a lot of Caribbeans came to live in Worsley Mesnes in the mid 70s. When I married, I lived in the high rise flats and there was a bit of a community around there. Errol Brown must have had friends there; he was in the Freemasons Arms at Goose Green one day, stood at the bar with a bottle of champagne. You couldn’t get a glass of wine in those days let alone a bottle of champers! Apparently Jack the landlord knew a few celebrities.
