Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Earwig O (Les Barker)
Jim if you had ever seen Les Barker you would understand better. He's not just a poet who reads his poems. He also works with the Mrs Ackroyd Band.

Amongst other things before Earwig O he hands out toilet rolls which are passed along the audience and everyone joins in the chorus whilst waving them football style. It's a scream.

Any of his stuff (including the serious ones) are well worth reading.
