Vernon Haddock

Vernon Haddock’s Jubilee Lovelies were among the relatively few Uk ’60s jug music group acts, releasing an exceptionally uncommon album on Columbia UK in 1965. The LP’s a good-natured, simple jug music group record, all except one of the tracks being addresses, including such well-traveled products as “Coney Isle Washboard,” “DON’T ALLOW Your Deal DECREASE,” “Clementine,” “Viola Lee Blues,” “Stealin’,” and “I Desire I POSSIBLY COULD Shimmy Like My Sister Kate.” Like many jug rings the six-member work performed an arsenal of musical instruments, including banjo, electric guitar, kazoo, mandolin, jug, washboard, and harmonica. One of the most exclusive device was their swanee whistle, whose whooping slides added an intermittent zany contact. The group got their offer due to their association with Peter Eden and Geoff Stephens, who have been Donovan’s early managers. EMI (which ran Columbia UK) gave them a offer for generating four albums, though just three of the were produced. One was by folk vocalist Mick Softley; one was by folk take action Bob Davenport & the Rakes, as well as the additional was the self-titled recording by Vernon Haddock’s Jubilee Lovelies. The music group were school close friends of Eden and Stephens, and there is certainly a Vernon Haddock, who performed mandolin, swanee whistle, and jug. The additional users on the recording had been David Elvin (banjo, acoustic guitar, vocals, kazoo); Alan Woodward (acoustic guitar); Alan Sutton (washboard, percussion); David Vaughn (harmonica, support vocals), and Sid “Hemorrhoids” Lockhart (vocals and 12-string acoustic guitar). The lineup occasionally transformed during live looks, as well as the Bonzo Doggie Band’s famous Vivian Stanshall occasionally used them on-stage. Vernon Haddock’s Jubilee Lovelies was documented in one night time in the summertime of 1965, and offered no more than 400 copies, most of them in the band’s displays. Although they do some documenting for Immediate and Decca afterward, including a cover from the Kinks’ “Mr. Pleasant,” nothing at all got released. They split up in early 1967, as a number of the associates had been unwilling to invest in turning completely professional. David Elvin stood set for bass for Vernon Dudley Bohay-Nowell at several displays for the Bonzo Pet dog Band, and done the animation from the Beatles’ Yellow Submarine film.
