What about an accordian? Is that a Redditch instrument as well? You know, a local variant of the accordion? Or is it just a local spelling? Lol:)
I have been familiar with this record for more than 30 years from having the utterly brilliant "Teddy Boys Don't Knit" album, which IMHO is Vivian's best work. Anything with Vivian Stanshall in it is worth owning, and that album also features two other musicians I like a lot, Ollie Halsall and Admiral John Halsey, both former members of the criminally underrated Timebox. Vivian obviously knew a good musician when he heard one, and that album is proof.
Terry is believed to have come from Redditch, and his clips were renowned around the world. His saddle design was less successful however.
Interesting to note also that the baconium is a folk instrument found only in, or just outside of Redditch
Worth noting the musician credits on the sleeve:
Accordian: John Kirkpatrick
Baconium, vocals: Stanshall
Guitar: Ollie Halsall
Drums: Admiral John Halsey
Bass: Roscoe Gee
Piano: Neil Innes
Reeds: Jim Cuono
Ah, Vivian Stanshall! What a genius! Terry Keeps His Clips On is an obvious offshoot from Rawlinson End, while King Kripple (it's spelt like that on the LP) harks back to Vivian's Bonzo Dog days. A great single, but not worth buying because both sides are on the utterly brilliant Teddy Boys Don't Knit album.
