John Martyn comes from Glasgow, played guitar and sang in folk clubs, made two solo LP's, met Beverley.
John is more of a clamberer; bumbling into stacks of old Weekend Telegraphs and running round corners intro prams. John wins surprise packets; splashes after Bombay swans and eats pigeon pie.
So there I was on this barge on the river wearing nothing but denims and a smile, and this blue man says to me, 'You know I used to like you, but I saw sense and I changed myself.'
Theo Johnson first saw the light of Folk Music in a small fishing village called Culowercoats in Northumberland [Cullercoats, Tyne and Wear, ed]. Born there in 1930 he soon grew into a big bouncing boy with a booming voice of much depth, which he attributed to his mother, a well known opera singer, and mullet stew three times a day. Venturing from this seclusion he joined the Merchant Navy in 1944 travelling to the four corners of the globe, collecting folk songs from many nations.
