Subject: RE: Fivepeny piece, anyone remember them?
Well i'll goo tu the foot of our stairs, the Fivepenny Piece. I've just bin und dug out their LP, 1972, und it's got EE BY GUM on it und that uther one about the bloke what gets drunk und guuss home fur his supper und eats the wash leather his missus 'as left on the stove tu soak.
But ah...tu get back tu what we're on about 'ere. At the top corner of the cover it says 'File under POPULAR:Pop Groups'so that shows what they thought of um in 1972 dunt it. I'd just finished helpin me ole dad on the lorries in them days und we'd bin up Ashton-Under-Lyne way alot.Tu me the songs summed up life up that way, tough but underpinned by that wunderfull sense of 'umour thut they seams two 'ev up north.
Yu used tu git some gud ole boys up there all right, but thats another story.
