Pete Prescott….when i was on the london pub scene in the 70’p we used to hear about this amazing band that played jig a jig ! never saw them.wish i had.and to end up playing with them years later !

Michael Mepham……. Jig a Jig?

Andy Qunta….Wow! I’d love to play in a band like that!

Martyn Baker….This was inspiring stuff to the teenage me.

Phil Thornton….lamp post lil ?

Geoff Peckham….Hi Philip. I believe we went to the same sunday school! Yeah, Lampost Lil. I think Andy and Tone will remember that when we recorded it at Daltrey’s place, it set off a debate about our musical direction. The guys in the control room (Paul Waldron, our then manager, John Jansen and others) were shocked at the way Lil started gently and then went off ‘at a tangent’. They said we should be playing more ‘laid back’ music a la West Coast bands like Little Feat and the Eagles. We didn’t agree. That band in the picture doesn’t look as though they’re playing Tequilla Sunrise. I also remember, when recording Lil, getting on my knees to play the Hammond bass pedals. I’d love to hear it again if anyone has a copy.

Phil Thornton….Hi Geoff – ha ! sunday school ! – I havent heard lampost Lil since the Greyhound/King and Queen days !! – watching Factory was such a big inspiration !
