Harmonium Hero Review: Michael Hurley's werewolf song (4) RE: Review: Michael Hurley's werewolf song 31 Oct 14


Anybody remember 'Crisis' - 1970s St Helens-based folk group? They were a trio with harmonica, accordion and zob stick (lagerphone). Played sort of jug band music without the jug. Well, anyway, they used to sing this song. As I remember it, I think the lead singer (whose name, like most people's names, is eluding me) sang it unaccompanied. Other classics sung by them were 'You're Gonna Need Somebody When I'm Gone' (have I got the title right?) and 'Prodigal Son', which I think may have been one of their own. Perhaps somebody can confirm. Or not. They split up around 1980, when the accordionist (whose name ...etc) decided to concentrate on his art work. I think.

John Kelly.
