I was listening to Resonance.fm this evening (which is now on digital radio), "In Conversation With Henry Scott-Irvine". 'This week's special guest is Chas McDevitt, 81 year old skiffle legend, best known for his recording of 'Freight Train' with folk singer Nancy Whiskey which was a Number 5 hit in the UK in 1957 - and went on to be a million seller in the USA, making the Glaswegian McDevitt the only British skiffle act apart from Lonnie Donegan to have any significant international success.'

A lot of what they talked about really added to these LBJ interviews, with mentions of several of the same characters, early days of British blues, etc. It's repeated this coming Sunday at 6.00am,, and I don't know if it'll be on line. If it is, I'll post a link, it's well worth a listen.

and somewhat outside the scope of these interviews, and stories about British blues, I had some vague memories of LJB's involvement - if that's the right word - with black magic/satanism/Crowley-bollocks. I haven't delved too deeply into the dark google, but here's one link that brings together LJB, the self-styled satanist David Farrant, and the allegations concerning LJB's (temporarily) lost cat http://www.davidfarrant.org/publication ... re-hunter/

What a shower! (Terry-Thomas voice essential)
