Scotch Corner
by Man

Album: Rhinos, Winos & Lunatics (1974)

Songfacts®:

  • This group composition is arguably the strongest track on the aptly named Rhinos, Winos & Lunatics, and features some excellent duel lead guitar; its genesis is explained in the album liner notes.

    At a transport café at Scotch Corner in the North of England the band met a man who looked like a turtle who was on his way to the Lake District to commit suicide. The song was originated by guitarist Micky Jones, and the lyrics were written by co-guitarist Deke Leonard. >>
