Here is Ivor with an impromptu performance at a swish elegant Norfolk nightspot. He’s attempting “Piles Of Trouble” and is assisted by Spike, of The Hedge Monkeys Skiffle Troupe. You can hear The Hedge Monkeys on Ivor’s latest Boxed set (available HERE) and he also appears on a couple of their CDs.

Accompanied by David Ivory, pianist and patron of the Theatre Organ Society. The piano microphone rig, just visible top right, is a classic “crossed pair” of hypercardioids, very old-school. This was taken on 21st September, so is he planning something for Christmas?
More from Ivor’s scrapbook. There’s the big reveal of Ivor’s identity in the News Of The World and an advert for his debut album (which is, of course, included in the new box set, The Compleat Works of Ivor Biggun)
The Compleat Works of Ivor Biggun is officially released today. That means the final two albums are available for streaming. As the title says, Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Mostly Blue is a compilation of recent recordings and some old tracks (with a ‘borrowed’ sleeve) while Handling Swollen Goods has upgraded audio. This also means the CD set is available from Amazon UK though it’s more expensive than on this site as they take a hefty amount in commission (and undercharge the real cost of shipping). Overseas orders are only available from this site.
Well, Ivor made it into the East Anglian Daily Times, along with all the adverts for sugar beet choppers and caravan time-shares.
Unfortunately he’s holding a copy of the CLEAN CD made for Minsmere Bird Reserve, with R G Cox singing only one non-sweary song about The Eel’s Foot Pub.
Continuing the release of the original albums on streaming services, we’re pleased to announce it’s the (re)turn of Partners In Grime. In other news the albums are also available on Bandcamp. Sales of The Compleat Works of Ivor Biggun are going well (there’s life in the old tosser yet) and it’s exclusively available (UK only) from this site for £20 including the £3.20 postage
