Subject: RE: Folklore: Bouncing Billy Barker
Nice to see Tony Hill getting some recognition, and Billy Barker's descendents chipping in. I recorded Tony's "Ninian South" years ago and messed about with "Song of the Irwell" at one point. Does anybody do that one? He was a good guy.
And hello to Chris Cole - happy memories of the Unicorn in the 1980s. I always enjoyed the Half Man Half Biscuit songs - in fact I was having a laugh about the line "my travelling army of synthetic supporters" (from the Subbuteo Song) only the other day!
