"Can you remember the old outdoor Swimming pool?
it had fish and crabs living in it and was billed as the biggest outdoor pool in europe."

How could I forget it? It was always bloody freezing; took an hour or so to work your way in, all for the pleasure of feeling that hint of slime on the bottom as it squelched between your toes. Lovely. I have a few photos somewhere.

"If you ever come over to the land of grey skies and grey waters give us a shout and will buy you a pint"

Now you're talking! Actually I'd love the chance to play over in England again; it's been so long. All I have to do is talk the missus into a Humberside holiday and try and incorporate a gig or two. Hell, an open mic would suit me fine. It'd be lovely just to play. I did get a spin recently on Cleethorpes lad Dave Evardson's South Bank Show on Radio Britfolk, but that's about as close as I've come for years.
So you worked on the Railway? My Grandad did his 30 years as a shunter. I still have the silver watch they gave him. It's all documented in the track "The Golden Age Of Steam" on my CD. If you fancy a listen to the full track rather than just a clip, you can go to Soundclick at the link below. Help yourself!
