What a great site! My head is quietly reeling, and I've sung my way through all my favourites. They all seem to be the polite versions tho'!

Anyone got the 'omnibus, st Pancreas etc etc' version words?
I'm slightly shocked the Below the Salt album came out the year I was born. Ye gads! Does that date me or what?

The chorus only.

Away day
Away day
Loco in transit
Omnibus, St.Pancreas
Away day.

Ask flash or his sister. They're the last ones I heard singing it.

That website has been a great example for many years of the best thing about the internet:

You don't have to be obsessed about everything you like, there's always someone else to do it for you!

Ole Reinhard has been the best source of Steeleye data for oo, at least 10 years (oh gods, I've been on line that long!)
I see he's branched out these days :)

T: right, we're singing that version next year!

Can we change the really daft lines? I think we ought to set the task for our creative members to write our own version... :twisted:

Speaking as a concerned fiend (sic) of Milwr, does it have to be in Latin? (Cracks knuckles and scratches head, as signal for muse to descend)

BTW, your probationary member (The Large One) is on a mission to a certain armoury in Leeds today. His missis is making him go in daylight, and without the oxy-acetylene torch but I have told him the whereabouts of the elephant armour. Just so's you know.

Well, "Latin" is probably a bit strong, but "Latin-esque" is required, the above-quoted filk is a good guideline to the requirements. We have standards to maintain, after all (they may not be very high standards, but standards nonetheless ;))!

Time ot revive this thread!

Now I have bought my tickets ....... :lol: :lol:
I will tell all that Maddy prior & The Carnival Band are doing a gig in Newtown (Powys) on the evening of December 18.

I think the tickets were about £12.

Saw them at Oxford about a year ago and they were still as good as when Steeleye Span were around.

Hi everyone, first post here, so please be gentle with me!

Just wanted to say that the 'Omnibus, St Pancras' etc version is by a folk-character by the name of Sid Kipper - there is a link (hopefully) following to an unofficial, but approved, fan site and also a (hopefully) second link to the 'official' site. There are lots of other vaguely familiar songs on the unofficial site which have been 'Kippered' and tons of other hysterical witings on the official one - particularly for anyone involved with 'folk'.

Hope you enjoy!

Thank you so much Mary! I'd forgotten about Sid Kipper! I've just visited that site and wound down from a busy day by finding out all about how to play the walnuts :) Thanks!

One of my favourites is Les Barker, his songs are some of the few I can still remember and I once gave him a hug in an upstairs room in Lincoln pub.

I'm on his mailing list, which means I have every book of poetry he has written since 1990, when I joined. I've even paid for some of them...
