Mouldy Old Dough

Lieutenant Pigeon



Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

There are very few words in this song, mostly just "Mouldy old dough" repeated over and over.
Lieutenant Pigeon was a British group of Robert Woodward (piano), Steve Johnson (bass) and Nigel Fletcher (drums). Woodward's mother Hilda was a piano teacher, and she was also in the band. This is the only UK #1 to feature a mother and her son. The only father-daughter combination was Frank and Nancy Sinatra, who had a 1967 British #1 with "Somethin' Stupid."
In an interview with New Musical Express the band's drummer Nigel Fletcher explained: "Hilda's front room in Coventry was the scene of the crime. We didn't use the best equipment - it was recorded on a domestic machine. We find we get a better sound using the front room."
The single took 8 months to reach the top of the UK charts. Their only other British hit was the song's follow up "Desperate Dan." (thanks, Edward Pearce - Ashford, Kent, England, for all above)

Your information is wrong!!!

The original drummer was infact my father William Harman.

He is so modest he only gave me the info and newspaper clips last week.

Feel free to try and correct me.

The Blind Melon bassist/songwriter tells the story of "No Rain," which he wrote before the band was formed.

Vince Gill, Emmylou Harris and Lyle Lovett are just a few of the artists who have looked to Clark for insightful, intelligent songs.

The "Lowdown" and "Lido Shuffle" singer makes a habit of playing with the best in the business.

Shears does very little promotion, which has kept him secluded from the spotlight. What changed when Cyndi Lauper had a hit with his song? Not much, really.
