Clive Palmer in 1985
The Charlie Cool Quartet
I recorded Clive Palmer, of Incredible String Band fame, at Ding Dong in 1985, with his mysteriously named Charlie Cool Quartet. He was joined by Tim Wellard (Guitar), John Bickersteth (Accordian & Piano) and Patrick McDonagh (Double Bass). Clive played Clarinet and also added some Vocals along with his wife Gina Brown and Venny Ravenhill. They play a mixture of traditional Klezma tunes and covers of popular songs.
The image was created by artist and musician Ufi, for the original limited cassette release.
A remastered account of that session is now available on CD for £12 plus £1.50 postage.
