The Scrap Iron Rhythm Revue - Stavely Makepeace

The Scrap Iron Rhythm Revue
Centred on the irrefutable talents of Nigel Fletcher
and Rob Woodward, Stavely Makepeace began their career in the late 60s
releasing singles on 8 different labels. In the mid 1970’s they also
released records as an alter ego novelty band, Lieutenant Pigeon, and
scored massive hits. Enough to keep funding the more serious side to
their work as Stavely Makepeace.We present the first ever
collection of their work (no album having been released to date), with
the focus on their early - mid 1970’s peak period. Fletcher and
Woodward cultivated an extraordinary sound through recording with home
made equipment in the front room of Woodward’s mums house. Spending up
to 15 hours a day running tape loops, sound effects, playing
conventional and unconventional instruments, Stavely Makepeace occupy
the same territory as Delia Derbyshire and Joe Meek in producing
experimental pop music. As such the recordings have attracted followers
from today’s music tastemakers including St Etienne’s Bob Stanley and
Pulp’s Jarvis Cocker.The group actually beat their novelty alter
ego onto Top Of The Pops when in 1970 they appeared to promote the
single Edna. Their records also used to achieve significant amounts of
airplay from DJs such as Chris Tarrant and Annie Nightingale. Slippery
Rock 70’s has today found its way into the pantheon of top junkshop glam
records to collect, and took pride of place on the Velvet Tinmine
compilation last year.
