Lieutenant Pigeon

The ever prolific Pete Clemons with his latest for the Coventry Telegraph. The background to Lieutenant Pigeon and Mouldy Old Dough - which wasn't their only single of course.

Here is their website http://www.lieutenantpigeon.co.uk/

Rob Woodward - piano
Nigel Fletcher- drums
Steve Johnson - bass,
Rob's mum Hilda - Piano
From the Rex Brough Cov Music Site.
This band created Coventry's first No 1 hit in their living room in Stoke. Mouldy Old Dough, was basically an instrumental save for the intermittent refrain of the title. The B-side, "the Villain" is highly recommended as it is very very strange. The follow-up Desperate Dan, just made the Top 20.
