I always believed Trevor Crozier died in an accident some years ago; from this thread, it appears to be the late 1990s. By a sad coincidence another member of a "Scrumpy and Western" band (I am asuming Trevor Crozier sang with the "Yetties", Adge Cutler of the Worzels, was I think also killed in a car accident (or was it a combine harvester?!) though I think this was before Trevor Crozier.

I first heard of Trevor Crozier on the vinyl albun "Giles Farnaby's Dream Band" - I think he is mentioned as being part of the Folk Trip "Broken Consort" (the album content is mostly instrumentals going back in some cases as far as 1651, but there are several songs including "The Helston Furry Dance", which is the progenitor of "The Floral Dance", Pastime With Gopof Company, which some believe was written by King Henry the Eighth, probably while he was writing his little-known book "Making Marriage Work", and "Ratcliffe Highway"), but also have another vinyl album with songs by Trevor Crozier. This contains generally light-hearted songs like "Dead Dog Scrumpy", "Don't Tell I, Tell 'Ee", "Lamorna", etc.

"Pastime With Gopof Company" should read "Pastime With Good Company". Also, I am not implying King Henry the Eighth wrote "Ratcliffe Highway".

I remember Trevor Crozier when he was attending Trinity College, Dublin in the mid sixties. I remember him singing "My father was the keeper of the Eddystone Light". He had great personality on stage and people loved him.

I used to see Trevor quite often at folk clubs in the 1960s, booked him a few times as well. He never seemed to be able to decide whether he was a serious musician recording with the likes of Vic Gammon in the aforementioned GF Dream Band or a comic songwriter. To my mind his real talent was for writing and performing really clever comic songs with some awful rhymes. The one I remember best, probably his best known song, was If the Piddlethentride Jug Band Hits the Charts.

Hi,

Very late to come to this thread ... I'm Trevor's son Ciaran's kind-of 'foster-mum' altho he's a strapping lad over 6 feet and is 30 soon.

Trevor was killed on his motorbike, in a hit and run in MALAWI, Central Africa (where I also lived, although had returned to UK by the time of his death)

Trevor went out there in 1979 to his family's small tobacco growing estate.

I'd met Trevor in Worthing, south coast, where before he left for Malawi he'd run a weekly folk night "Sing With A Skinful" he called.

Awesome entertainment from Trev - a funny, multi-talented, multi-instrumentalist - with great pro and semi-pro musicians from all over who'd turn up and play because he was Trev.

Very sadly missed friend and a musician and entertainer who - IMO, as I've wept silenty into my ale - could wipe the floor with many so-called 'multi-talented' acts I've since been an audience for.

It’s good to hear that Trevor has a son.
I sincerely hope he’s as daft as his Dad.
I knew Trev during his ‘sojourn’ in the Poynton area in the seventies. He installed himself occasionally in our flat for a time and also stayed for quite a while with a local lad called Chris Wainwright.
Trev partnered up with Joe Beard of Purple Gang fame, and along with other daft buggers recorded a live album, at Poynton Folk Club, the name of which I can’t remember.
We had a band which gloried in the name of ‘ Lord Longford’s Eleven’- another of Trevs wonderful inventions.
If Joe is still about, I’m sure he can give a better account of that dime than I can.
Thanks for clearing up what actually happened to Trev.
Roger

Is this the guy who was, basically, homeless and would try and stay with club "hosts: until his next gig? If so he is a legend of the folk scene.

Vectis ... hahaha, yes that probably is Trevor ..

I remember as a naive teenager who'd met and palled up with Trev (friends until the end eventually) in 1978ish ... he'd come up with various 'gig' trip invites which involved for example:
the pitch dark at midnight trying to hitch lifts a 100 miles home;
in the pitch dark, complete strangers' taking us to their homes in the middle of nowhere, at 1am because they'd kindly taken pity on us after a gig;
in the pouring wet and dark of a winter's afternoon knocking on his producer Kev's London door:(Trev, "He'll put us up... ")
... to be met at the door by,(Kev) "My f****** wife's just left me!!". Oops.

Roger: Ciaran ...hm, he's fantastically smart, hardworking ... and frequently loses his front door keys. Also, he adores music and like his dad,sings very flat.

Just spoke with Joe Beard - and there's a big 'Trevor' tribute CD project going down ... involving some luminous contemporaries of Trev's. Not sure if I'm allowed to say more right now, but Mudcat'll be first to know!!

A song of Trevor's that I particularly remember was the The Piddlethentride Jug Band. I think that Tony Rose recorded it and it became very popular at the time. In a way it is a silly comedy piece but look at the structure and the rhyming patterns and you will find that it is quite clever:-
I always planned to make this band
The very finest in the land,
So I got to hold auditions
For to find the best musicians.
Some what played, they made the grade;
Some they played like hell,
I picked the best in all the West,
And here's the personnel:
There was Bernard Mace on the old string bass,
Made from a girt big packing case.
Next to he comes Amos Draper,
Wizard on the comb and the paper.
Arnold Slugg, what blows the jug,
He's barred from all the locals;
And I'm the star with my guitar,
Harmonica and vocals.

Now what were worse and made I curse
Were finding somewhere to rehearse.
Neither of the pubs would wear us,
For it seemed they couldn't bear us.
Folks all laughed, they called I daft.
I took it on the chin.
I were always fond of the old duck pond,
Till they jugged I in.
Then Bernard Mace, he sailed through space,
Followed by his own-made case.
Amos Draper, he did try
To keep his roll of paper dry.
Arnold Slugg went “glug, glug, glug”
And very quickly sank,
And my gumboots was full of newts
When I reached the other bank.

Now we'd not been barred from the old churchyard
And there one night we practised hard.
Every man were full of cider,
Doing his best with the C.C. Ryder,
When a figure in white then come in sight;
We thought we'd waked the dead,
But Parson Stirt in his nightshirt
Said we waked he instead.
So Bernard Mace took his old string bass,
And he said we'd better had leave this place.
Off he flew with Amos Draper,
Trailing yards of Bronco Paper.
Arnold Slugg with his two-gallon jug
For speed were not designed,
And I ran like a fox with the parson's box
He were following close behind.

But then one day old Farmer Grey
Come up to me and this did say:
All his beasts like music played 'em.
Would we kindly serenade 'em?
So off we sped to the old cowshed,
Them cows they did adore us.
They wagged their tails and they banged their pails
And joined in every chorus.
Then Bernard Mace with his old string bass,
And a girt big Guernsey licked his face.
Another got attached to Amos Draper,
Chewed up all his pale pink paper,
Filled the jug of Arnold Slugg,
His kindness to acknowledge;
And I got a kiss of a perty little miss
From the Agricultural College.

So in one week we quite uniquely
Made the chart in 'The Farmer's Weekly'.
Play your cows our Rhythm'n'Blues, you'll
Get three times more milk than usual.
We've got plans, a lots of barns,
No rivals do we fear,
'Cause every cow loves 'Mama Don't Allow,
No Jug Band music in here'.
Now Bernard Mace has a shirt of lace
And his hair completely hides his face.
Likewise that of Amos Draper,
Getting in between his comb and paper.
Arnold Slugg's got a Pop Art jug
What broke his mother's heart.
We look so queer in all this gear,
Since we made the charts.
