John MacKenzie Heckling at Folk Clubs (77* d) RE: Heckling at Folk Clubs 29 Jan 20


Re the thump a heckler incident Dick mentioned in passing. I was present on two occasions when bodily contact was made, at two different folk clubs, on neither occasion was anybody actually struck, but there was a whiff of more than fear in the air, from the person on the receiving end of the threat. The first was in The Student Prince, in it's second home in Wardour Street, and it was Martin Windsor threatening some chap with defenestration, and the second was in Les Cousins at an all nighter, when a person who would not shut up, was threatened with a bashing from the old (heavy) milk churn lid, that sat on the edges of the stage, and did duty as an ashtray. The annoyed person on that occasion, was Redd Sullivan, so they really were a double act ;)
