This refers to " The Aintree Institute " on Longmoor Lane, where the Beatles and many other groups played during 1960's. So, if Peter Jackson [director of the upcoming Let It Be documentary] reads your article, I’d like to see it, and see if I’m a member of the Fab Four! It's also my birthday and we're going for a liquid lunch first, so I'll hopefully be drunk before kick-off.

On 9 April 2020, the original members of the Scaffold released a re-worked version of "Thank U Very Much" in support of the British National Health Service staff during the COVID-19 pandemic. In this series of informative five-minute programmes, titled Decimal Five and shown on BBC1, their songs included such relevant lyrics as "Give more, get change" and "Use your old coppers in sixpenny lots".The majority of pages are undamaged with some creasing or tearing, and pencil underlining of text, but this is minimal.

My father was at school with Mike and told me years later that the 'Aintree Iron' was a betting system many of the local lads used at the Aintree track in those days. Mike McGear and Roger McGough wrote Lily the Pink as a cleaned up version of an earlier American folk song, The Ballad of Lydia Pinkham. Growing up my Dad always told me I lived on the Aintree iron because the block it is on is shaped like an iron; it has the Black Bull pub at on point, Longmoor Lane school at another and a derelict site at the third point, I'm not sure what the third point used to be as I'm too young to remember it.

If in doubt about the health or condition of your horse or camel, you should seek veterinary advice. brought back lots of memories of the 70s trying to avoid going to bed and making a Dairylea sandwich last 45 minutes. The phrase “Aintree Iron” means nothing to Americans, and I found that most English folk can’t even agree on what it means: it is noted on various sites that the phrase could refer to a noted English footballer, an area in Liverpool, or Brian Epstein! The film was long thought lost but recently appeared on a DVD of How I Won The War featuring John Lennon.

I read that Roger McGough 'doesn't like music and never has' - maybe that's why he made such a shit record.After McGough and Gorman temporarily decamped to participate in the final Grimms LP Sleepers in 1976 and Gorman released his solo album, Go Man Gorman, The Scaffold moved to the Bronze Records label and continued touring and releasing singles through 1977. He refused to cash in on his famous name, renaming himself firstly Mike Blank and then Mike McGear, in keeping with the argot of the day, and eschewed the easy route to Top Of The Pops stardom. I once went to a supermarket in Liverpool on business, and as I got out of the car noticed that the building next door was surrounded by a 12ft security fence topped off with barbed wire and razor ribbon.
