Epping, for those of you who are interested, played with a band
of American expats called Pumpkinhead in Ireland in the 70s.
Classic moments include him appearing on a BBC Northern Ireland
folk music show explaining that "there are many chicken songs in
American music. This is just one" and doing Cluck Old Hen. His
ex-girlfriend, also a member of Pumpkinhead, now plays with the
Slightly Bewildered String Band (ever heard the Great Pretender,
Somewhere Over the Rainbow, Raining In My Heart (Buddy Holly not
Slim Harpo), assorted jigs, reels and Old Timey yokes and Ode
to Joy in the same set?) which includes Ireland's most interesting
harmonica player, Mick Kinsella.
I'm lying on the bathroom floor, praying to the Lord,
I swear I'll never drink no more if this is my reward.
