Colin can tell 'um..
From the days when front-man Colin went on from the 1960's beat music scene
and entered the northern Club Circuit as 'The Two of Us' with his partner and pal 'Mitch' - or Tommy
as his stage name was known - he soon found that ad-libing pulled them through many a tight spot..
'Pokie' were booked as a punk band by mistake and
the club was full of young punk's so I said,
"Sorry about the cock-up, just close your eyes and pretend we're crap."
I said to the line-dancing Labour Club audience..
"Have any of you lot still got your own hips? You look like yer on a sponsored walk in a fog."
After supporting Emile Ford I said to my mate Tommy. "He was shite when he were a goodun."
"Oi!, you dont need to flash them lights in every song, its annoying.
Just leave us on Aubergine."
"We might be shite, but its mature shite."
"A big round of applause for your organist. And not forgetting your drummer who tried to keep up with us so well."
"The drummer was hard work tonight..
"It just sounded like someone had thrown a load of ball bearings up and they landed on his skins...""
At Huntington WMC in York..
Compere: "We get a lot of turns from Wigan and they're usually crap, have you been here before?"
"Aye I have mate, but I was a Roman Centurion last time."
To the club audience..
"I know you must be in awe of us, what with us being international cabaret artistes. But don'tbe put off wi' these posh suits, we wus' dragged up just like you lot. We're just the same underneath.
We like a butty, a pint and a jump. We've bin doin' a lorra eatin' un suppin' lately.."
