 Cheesy It wasn't meant to be a quiz. I just wondered who remembered it.

I am posting quite a few golden-oldie pics on Facebook, but you probably have seen them all, being an expert and all that Smiley

Well, based on some of your comments here and there, I wouldn't want to go head to head with you in a quiz  Smiley

Looks like you went head to head with somebody, and they lost theirs.  Grin

And this is the mask that Peter wore as Saint George - who fought with Rick as Bold Slasher. Great Photo. Thanks

As you may have seen elsewhere I have been going through a pile of old ITs, Frendz etc...all great fun.  Amongst the collection I came across a mag called FAPTO which appears to be from the hippie metropolis of Margate.  Issue 4 includes an interview (of sorts) with Steeleye around the release of Ten Man Mop, or Mr. Reservoir Butler Rides Again .  Its a complete joke the interview..lots of swearing and nothing attributed to anybody in particular and the interviewers admit their tape recorder didn't work properly so they 'remembered' most of it.

If you want a flavour of it, here's the introduction (try not to wince):

Steeleye Span - four really happy guys and one happy chick who sits and embroiders or darns socks or something.  Even though Steeleye have taken to electrifying their equipment and moving from the smaller folk clubs to appear before a wider audience, we still found them to be completely down to earth folkies.

 Grin Grin


I'm reading some older threads at random and this post caught my eye. Absolutely wonderfull, I did not wince but could not help laughing out loud. Four really happy guys and one happy chick  Grin I wonder if the band read that article as well. I would love to read the whole article.

Does anyone know what that foot pedal is that Peter uses for his solo on Bonny Black Hare?
Can it be used to any degree with a guitar ?
 What a fab sound . I want one .

I know, I know!!  Cheesy

It is a RAT pedal.

I have asked, and Peter says that it can be used with an electric guitar, in fact he says it can be used with anything but it works particularly well with his Octave fiddle.

I have noticed at gigs that when he is playing his solos on Bonny Black Hare, some people are looking at Julian thinking that the sound is coming from the guitar  Smiley

He also uses it on one of the Wintersmith tracks, but I can't think which one.

My Pastiegirl said after it was played at Skeggy  "Wow !!! How I loved that "Grungy" guitar sound " .  When I said it was Peters fiddle replied --"Genius---the mans a genius "

Oh and now I'm revising my Crimbo wish list . I want one .  Fez

Just out of interest, I looked up the Wiki entry for The RAT pedal, and found a very extensive list of musicians who have used one over the years :

I am sure that all interested parties will have seen this already, but here is the RAT pedal in action.
And look...no ponytail.
Should I play Delilah (not the song!) when we get home?  Tongue

Not heard this before. Live from 1981. Its audio only but excellent quality and a quite brilliant performance of a song that has never done a lot for me but on this listening I love it!! The guitar work is amazing and might even be Tim because I'm sure there are two lead guitars going on and the main one has the distortion high which is not like Bob. Having said that listening to it now it might be Peter up to old tricks and getting the violin sounding like an electric guitar again! (I am rambling about the instrumental solos in the middle by the way)

Thanks for posting that, I'd not heard it before.

I think that there's a combination of Bob Johnson, Tim Hart and Peter all vying together over each other and taking it in turns at the fore, sometimes almost within phrases.  Superb arrangement, however they did it!
