Old Vermin Random Folk Reflections (18) RE: Random Folk Reflections 31 Jan 11


The Yetties in a shack next to Ash vale railway station c 1966. I didn't believe any unamplified band could be so loud.

Dave Swarbrick and Martin Carthy somewhere in London with wood panelling. Hadn't heard anything like them before - so young, such energy, and such tunes.

Watersons - probably at the White Lion - now gone - in Guildford. My brain had difficulty handling the harmonies.

Alex Campbell working his way through a bottle of Scotch at Addlestone. About 1970 or 1971? Past his best by then.

The excellent 'Eric' doing Jones's Ale in the Red House at Woking and the thing about the Dun Cow catching fire, and Danny Denningberg - saw him in Godalming the other day - invariably and very seriously doing [probably the Gresford] Mine Disaster or whatever it was in the same venue. Also someone would do

'I don't care if it rains or freezes
long as I've got my plastic Jesus
Riding on the dashboard of my car...'

and

'LBJ looks after me, with Uncle Harold, Georgie Brown and Marshall Ky
They have got me well protected from the mean and disaffected
They're by buddies and they're looking after me.

- that'll be before 1970, then.

And of course -

Will ye go Lassie, go
&
The Leaving of Liverpool.


I associate Redd Sullivan with the Candlelight Fisherman, perhaps wrongly.

Can't remember any performers from the Guildford club in the Trades & Labour and Star save a lad doing 'They're burning down the house I was brung up in...'
