Thread Name: Origin: Oggie Man / Oggy Man (Cyril Tawney)
Subject: RE: Oggie Man
Last time I saw Brenda was a few years back at a Ralph McTell gig in Penzance. She got up with Ralph to do a join in and see what happens with us. Ralph's guitar amp. packed up and he was making frantic hand signals to his techy - to no avail. As to pasties - best I have ever come across are to be had in Hayle.

I recall singing in the club in Devonport in the late 60's and him sing the Oggie Man. Malcolm's desc. is quite right - the arrival of larger atands gave rise to the eventual Ivor Dewdney pasty firm. Thsy say things don;t change for the better and ID pasties are living proof. Good to hear Cyril is still singing - we are all getting weathered a bit now but carry good memories.
