Question for older members...

Did the Umps and Dumps record anything other than 'The Moon's In A Fit'

Before we get a list a zillion miles long, I'm aware of what each member has done. And, before we get a list ten zillion miles long I'm aware of what Kirkpatrick has done.

I'm very young (a mere 32) so I wasn't around when the album was released. But, does anyone remember them performing the material live? Were any live recordings made?

I think it's a special record. A real British mix of folk, marching music, trad jazz, music hall. It's all in there.

Butler

You mean there's really a band called the Umps and Dumps?

I've played on the stage on the front cover more than a few times.. I don't think they recorded anything else as Umps and Dumps, but if they did I'd love to hear it. A delightful album.

Jim - well, there was, and they recorded an album called the , which included Derek Pearce from Roaring Jelly.

Butler - I fear you're right, there was only one album from U&D.

I think there might have been a technical glitch, but I meant to say, that there was one, and only one, U&D album, and that U&D included Derek Pearce from Roaring Jelly (and now, the Omega Three).

There is an Umps & Dumps track on the BBC Radio Derby charity cassette The Derby Tub Presents but this may well have been taken from The Moon's in a Fit.

The other musicians on Tufty Swift's album"how to make a Bakewell Tart"were all members of Umps and Dumps so I would assume it may be Umps and Dumps without the name and its also an excellent album

I certainly heard them play and danced at some of their ceilidhs (mid 70s). They were something of an inspiration for a band I formed at the time, which also had a banjo player working a kick drum and hi-hat, and a hammered dulcimer.

One of my favourite bands at the time, along with Flowers and Frolics.
