about

I’d finished “Magnificent Monologues” and was thinking about doing something similar but different, when this bloke from up near Norway (Newcastle, actually) sent me a copy of “Dead Men Don’t Wear ‘erringbone.” I thought it was excellent, and began to record it with a band accompaniment in mind. Before I’d finished it Gary Hogg had sent another six, and I realized we would soon have enough material for an album. It was then only a matter of ironing out certain dialect differences and rhyming patterns, and we’d assembled thirteen of them at the next count. There’s an accompanying book of the same name with 40 monologues and lots of Gary’s cartoons, now available only from Gary at www.garyhogg.co.uk
With help from the Amblethwaite Colliery Band and piano player Burt Terrace we hereby present for your delectation a collection of thirteen fairly truthful tales.
