Gypp reunion IP: 188.8.131.52 Posted on March 10, 2019 at 04:28:24 AM by ageing ted
Holy crap! A whole hour devoted to Gypp on BBC Suffolk! (Link on Cleaners Facebook) Plenty of rare concert audio and plenty of excellent commentary by Martin.
And when I say rare, I mean 'Physical Wreck' live which was not on either JarMusic Gypp CD (although a studio version was on the Horizontal Brian LP).
Hearing this reminded me of my great unfulfilled quest - the hunt for Gypp's first cassette 'Guild of Watchers'. This was the pre-Newell lineup with Jerry Hovell singing. Even Ian Peppercorn couldn't scare up a copy for me. The only evidence of its existence is on a German podcast that includes just the title track.
I never would have known of this program without the hint from Facebook. Ta, Guv! Replies:
