Subject: Peter Bond - Birthday Cake City
From: GUEST,Steve Pepper
Date: 06 Nov 00 - 06:00 PM

More years ago than I care to remember we used to book Peter Bond at Filey FOlk CLub (UK). I have just dusted off his song Birthday Cake City and was wondering what had happenned to him in the last 20-25 years anyone heard of him or his music recently?

Thanks

And, Brendy, I do wonder if some of THAT relates to a different Peter Bond . .

No, that all relates to the Peter Bond we knew and loved...although it's amusing to see those albums described as 'rock'. Two albums I have of his which the site doesn't mention are 'Awkward Age' and 'See Me Up See Me Down'. I've been wondering lately if Peter has still been writing songs - he certainly wrote some good ones when he was on the scene. His songs deserved to be covered a lot more than they were.

Thanks, Joan . . it was the "arranger" credit on that Scots album which had me perplexed. Then when I went to the album details I couldn't find any mention of Peter.

Yup, we've got "See me up, see me down" and another of his albums whose title I can't remember.

Hmmmm...see what you mean. I couldn't get into those Scottish/Irish album details when I first posted, my computer kept crashing (it still doesn't like the site, but I've managed to get into 2 of them, briefly). Yes, I think I'm inclined to agree - probably a different Peter Bond on those.

As Peter teamed up with Bill Caddick at one time, I tried to find info on Bill on the same site, but came up with nothing.

There are a few people on our local scene who are still singing some of Peter's songs - I've recently resurrected 'The Baron and the Busker', and intend digging out more. I've been wondering about posting words in the forum, but I remember Peter himself took a dim view of words still in copyright being published on paper, and don't know whether he'd approve of the modern method. We might start a Peter Bond Revival, though! What do others think?

How could one not have heard of the writer of "Joe Peel" (which is currently back in June Tabor's repetoire)?

Thank you to Joan for contacting me by email I thought the thread had been lost and it is nice to talk to other people about things which remind me of some of the happiest times I ever had at Filey Folk Club in the 70s. I don't have an awful lot of contact with the folk scene these days and I mainly write the odd song with no audience to play to and collect even more instruments to adorn the walls. If anyone cares to look I have a simple home page with some folk related items. You never know someone may even invite me to do a floor spot

thanks

Steve, I liked the song on your site and will try to learn it. You're certainly welcome to do a floor spot in Wigan - if you're out this way, let me know and I'll send details. And keep an eye out for either a thread resurrection or a new thread about the forthcoming planned Mudcat gathering in Yorkshire next spring. The recent Manchester gathering was superb and it's going to be repeated in your neck of the woods - don't miss it!

"And, Brendy, I do wonder if some of THAT relates to a different Peter Bond . ."

Very perceptive, George. Just goes to prove that you're not as green as you're cabbage looking.

Brendy, I'm ancient and cynical . . I thought everyone knew that.

I did once find an entry for "Tony Hall" on one of these musicians bio. sites which had clearly totally "mixed and matched" two completely different Tony Halls . . I informed the site manager, even taking the trouble to point out what DID refer to the real (#1) Tony Hall - who we'd had staying with us a few days previously. No response, and 6 weeks later the info. was still as inaccurate . . . (I'd post the site info, but that was two hard-disc reformats ago, and my bookmarks didn't survive!)

Back to Peter . . was he with Bill in one of the Magic Lantern incarnations, then? And was "It's allright for some" the other LP of his I have hidden in the cupboard?

#1) Outstanding Melodeon player from near Norwich, Norfolk, UK.

Thanks Joan It is a long way but will let you know if I get out that way. Thanks for the comment on the song, I still work with the homeless in Leeds. Did you read the explanation it's three times longer than the song! Oh well.

I would be interested to know if anyone could let me have a recording of the song to compare with my rendition I play it in C banjo playing on either an old Clifford Essex Banjo or a tenor guitar in the same tuning.

Regards

Steve

He was with Bill Caddick and Tim Laycock on an album whose name escapes me but which had a circus theme (was it 'Duck on his Head?). I remember them announcing that their next project would be something completely different, I got the impression of some sort of play, based on a novel(?) called 'The Man Who Walked Through Walls' or something similar. But I don't think that project ever saw public light.

As far as I know, Peter's only three solo albums were 'It's All Right For Some', 'Awkward Age' and 'See Me Up See Me Down'.

I'd been trying to post that message since early Friday evening (UK time) and I kept getting a 'Gateway' error before not being able to get into Mudcat at all. I was so intent on getting posted, I didn't see Steve had posted already - sorry, steve, I wasn't intentionally ignoring you! Yes, I did read the explanation, and found it very interesting - it's always good to have the background to a song. And as and when I can get it down on tape, I'll e-mail you to ask where to send it.
