Subject: RE: Anybody know what happened to Peter Bond
Would the song about Lowry be "Mr Lowry" written by Bernie Parry by any chance? Apart from the song "Matchstick Men and Matchstalk Cats and Dogs" that got in the charts by Brian and Michael I can't think of any other songs about Lowry.

Bernie's song starts off

The door has closed behind me, gently through the library
And down the whispering galleries to where the great men lie
Rembrandt I pass him by, Salvador I let him lie
I know that they will never die and they don't need me today
The book I am seeking is here in my hand
A book full of pictures by a Lancashire Man
I stand here for ages turning the pages
And I'm lost in those images
And the room is fading away....

I must get that one back in my repertoire.

Good to hear that Peter still plays. Last time I saw him was at Four Fools a couple of years ago.

No doubt Peters Trailer records are part of Mr Bulmer's collection and will never see the light of day again for CD release but his third solo CD (Awkward Age) was an independant production...maybe there's an opportunity there.
