About this deal

Although not a hit when it was initially released it was picked up, oddly, and used as a theme tune for a Belgian current affairs TV programme. Firstly, and probably most importantly, a record producer somewhere will see the main chance of making a stack of cash for a minimal amount of work on someone who is ‘hot’.

Stavely Makepeace‘s manager was not impressed with this waxing and SM, therefore, became Lieutenant Pigeon for the purposes of performing MOD. The song "Naughty Naughty Naughty", was a novelty love song between the singer and Mr Punch, and reached Number 26 on the UK Singles Chart in May 1977. The Best of The Seekers LP knocked The Beatles (white album) off the top of the album charts and stopped the Rolling Stones getting to No. A bit like the thing in Quatermass that just kept growing and growing into some unspeakable ghastliness….And Georgy Girl (1966), from the very interesting 60s film of the same name, was a great tune which got to No. A follow-up single, "Angling for a Kiss" was released in November 1977, but failed to make the chart, and Sarney remains a one-hit wonder. Mind you, she was married to legendary Scottish football pundit Chick Young for 6 years which was as glamorous as it got post- MOTR. Stavely Makepeace rehearsed in the front room of original member Rob Woodward‘s mum’s house in Coventry and it is here they recorded Mouldy Old Dough. And then there was the guy (in fact, his name was Athol Guy– silly name) on double bass who wore those big 60s glasses and sung backing vocals.

So how did it get into the hands of a white-suited, moustachioed working men’s club warbler from Newcastle-Under-Lyme? Initially, the lead singer of Sweet Sensation, Marcel King, was supposed to do the vocal but reportedly couldn’t get to grips with the song, leaving the door open for producer David Parton to do his own version. It was the second biggest selling single of 1972 after Royal Scots Dragoon Guards bagpipe version of Amazing Grace (these were very MOR times), it was one of the estimable Jarvis Cocker’s eight records on Desert Island Discs, it was the first record Norman Cook ( Fat Boy Slim, but you knew that) ever bought, it is still the record Oldham Athletic F.

A sometime collaborator with the legendary Tony Hatch (more on him later), Parton wrote a couple of successful songs for New Faces winners Sweet Sensation, the No. around a year ago, a member of the team playing the Eggheads claimed to be Nigel Fletcher, former drummer of Lieutenant Pigeon.
