I have been very accommodating about moderating these, but will find it difficult to be so uncensorious (? - sorry so dictionary to hand) if they get sillier. I have a pretty good idea of their sources - the same as the old Juicy Lucy crew probably. The names of others sound as if someone's been playing Cluedo. At least Paul Hopfensperger admits who he is, and so far I must say I agree with what he says on this blog. I will give notice if I adopt the software necessary to trace server locations. Behave!

Steve - are you a Juicy Lucy fan, too? I`m going to a live gig in Leceistershire this year and another in Horsham in July! Did you have any professional relationship with the great Juicy Lucy?

Cllr Farmer is really with-it!!!! Bury seems a better bet for me than Sudbury.

Will tell you about my pigeon ghost next time.

Saucy blues-rockers Juicy Lucy formed in 1969 from the ashes of cult-favorite garage band the Misunderstood, reuniting vocalist Ray Owen, steel guitarist Glenn "Ross" Campbell and keyboardist Chris Mercer; with the additions of guitarist Neil Hubbard, bassist Keith Ellis and drummer Pete Dobson, the group immediately notched a UK Top 20 hit with their reading of the Bo Diddley perennial "Who Do You Love," with their self-titled debut LP falling just shy of the Top 40. Ex-Zoot Money singer Paul Williams, guitarist Mick Moody and drummer Rod Coombes replaced Owen (who exited for a solo career), Hubbard and Dobson for 1970's Lie Back and Enjoy It, with bassist Jim Leverton assuming Ellis' duties for the follow-up, 1971's Get a Whiff a This. The constant turnover clearly took its toll on the group both creatively and commercially, with co-founders Campbell and Mercer both exiting prior to the fourth Juicy Lucy album, 1972's Pieces, which was recorded by a makeshift lineup of Williams, Moody, keyboardist Jean Roussel and the former Blodwyn Pig rhythm section of bassist Andy Pyle and drummer Ron Berg. Juicy Lucy finally disbanded shortly thereafter. Ray Owen revived the name in 1995 for the album Here She Comes Again which found Mike Jarvis (guitar), Andy Doughty (bass), and Spencer Blackledge (drums) rounding out the band. A couple of years later this version of the band broke-up but Owen wanted to keep on going, especially when he formed a musical partnership with a guitarist known as Mr. Fish. Legal problems kept the new band from using the Juicy Lucy name so they gigged as Ray Owen's Moon. By 2004 bassist Fudge and drummer Fletch had joined the band and the legal issue was settled. The new Juicy Lucy spent 2006 working on a new album and touring the U.K. with Nazareth.

Just a thought.. If you don't like people putting comments anonymously, why do you bother publishing them? I'm sure these people who seem to use your blogging site as an internet dating room would soon give up if you stopped publishing their comments. You're far too tolerant in my opinion. Or perhaps you just have a very generous sense of humour?

Here's a handy tip for all of you anonymouses. Don't submit comments to different posts simultaneously. The time-stamp gives it away and a pattern begins to emerge for all to see.

I dont know if a previous message of mine was received?

I have a spare ticket for the Juicy Lucy gig in July if you`re interested, Steve. One of my mates cant go as he has a family wedding. There`s a group of us and we have a van.

Here`s my email address:

(I never use Brian as my name - especially after "I`ve just fallen off my chair, Brian" sketch of Monty Python! Everyone calls me Joe)

Have you written the Blackbird Song yet?
