The Flock................that brings back memories.

Saw them three times on the first UK tour . They had a hit with a version of the Kinks "So tired of waiting for you". And a compilation LP featured Flocks extremely long haired violinist Jerry Goodman on the front cover. People thought they were going to see a rock band. But they were an experimental  jazz /rock crossover outfit in reality and confused some of their audience a bit.

I loved them and still have a copy of Dinosaur swamps.

I have no objections to there being a chubby Chubby Checker checker though.

I believe there's a chubby Czech Chubby Checker checker, but I'd need to check, mate.

Unlike Chuck Berry, he insists on payment by... bank transfer.  Now there's a twist.  Wink

I feel sorry for the Desmond Dekker checker, who had to retire early.

Aye, you should have seen the ska tissue.

Deftly dipping a shoulder to avoid the moderators... I've just ordered my ticket for the Fairy Festival at Torpoint (Cornwall) Saturday 18th June - headline act is Corvus Corax. I dare say they'll be heard across the estuary at Plymouth Hoe.

Elvis and Michael Buble play regularly at the pub up the road here. Not even tributes, according to advertising.

@PaulT
some of the other bands at Fairy Fest sound quite interesting as well, so Corvus Corx will be the icing on the cake.
Wishing you a great time there.

We'll be seeing Corvus Corax again at one of the Spectaculums late in May.
Looking forward to it.

I've bought a camping ticket Al, but if RT is a late addition to the bill with the consequent meteorological anomalies... Thanks for the offer - maybe I'll see you at the festival - I won't be dressing up, btw - the world is not ready for the sight of me in a fairy costume.
