Dave (the Gnome) - Tony gets a brief mention elsewhere on this thread. He, and Arthur Wakefield, were stalwarts of the Manchester folk scene long before I arrived (e.g. The Two Brewers in Salford?).

Not many people know this but Tony did release an LP record “Tigermoth”; or, to be more precise, it actually escaped! He and his brother recorded a series of demo tracks and sent them to several record companies. One of them pressed the record which immediately went into oblivion until I dug out what was left of them at SP&S records in Manchester - a trade remainder warehouse.

I’d like to say that the record comes up very infrequently but I’ve just noticed that there’s been a copy available on Amazon since I wrote a review of it in 2015.

Does anyone remember the series of memorial concerts we held for him? Apart from the evening with Mike Harding and the two Bunny Girls, I’m having difficulty in remembering who took part.

Tony’s niece did pop up on Mudcat just before the 35th aniversary but her post/email address disappeared in the “Mudcat Crash” and she never came back.
