Beardsmen

Album: not released (1980)

Songfacts®:

  • According to vocalist Jeff Turner in his autobigraphy Cockney Reject (co-written with Garry Bushell), this song was about or inspired by his geography teacher Mr. Vallis, who, "Had the biggest beard you'd ever seen."

    As songs go, it is simply terrible, and fortunately it never appeared on an album, although unfortunately it was recorded. >>
