There is a few musicians out there with this name, however I bought it because the seller had it listed as the guitarist from Budgie. But after hearing it, I am 99% sure it's not John from Budgie and someone else totally different! So if anyone on here knows who it is please let me know as I would be very interested in finding out more about this single.
Recited, not sung, in a London accent, over a two-tone rhythm; the story of Jesus's trial and crucifixion, told in what I can only assume is Cockney argot - "He raised his peepers up to the blue and said 'Forgive 'em Dad, they dunno wot they do'." It's... different, and it's got a certain fascination. "One of you studs is gonna grass me up," indeed.
I think very safe, as John Thomas himself may well have briefed ( note innocent pun) all concerned or the band and the said manglement did not wish to hurt his feelings. I note that Morgan Studio boss has a writing credit. The inhouse label is all part of the way how Morgan studios did business.
There are several discs missing - but I remember seeing a Hobo release being a spoof of O Superman of Laurie Anderson.
