I was working with the Fabulous Salami Brothers at Shetland Folk Festival in 1985 when the BBC said they were going to record it. We quickly designed a set without a lot of the visual material of fire-eating, juggling, escapology etc. We crammed it with songs for the radio. In the end the BBC didn’t want it, but it stands as one of the few recordings of the Salamis in action.
The line up here is Taffy Thomas, Richie 3-Balls Taylor, Mike Bettison and yours truely.
