Barnaby Rudge


Barnaby Rudge is yet another Morgan (Morgan Studios in North London) project, in this case a cockney hippy character created by studio hands Wil Malone and Danny Beckerman. Sounding for all the world like a Deram-era David Bowie single, Joe, Organ & Co. is really just a curious novelty track with a slightly melancholy edge. Focussing on the adventures of an organ grinder and his monkey, it is a simple piece punctuated by sound effects and undercut by a slightly downbeat lyric, the entire package reflecting the child-like nature of a lot of vaguely psychedelic pop of the period. Despite plugs on several record stations (where Wil Malone was on occasion interviewed in character) the single wasn't a hit. Song ''Railway Jim'' was released as the B-side. Read more on Last.fm.
