Black Parrot Seaside

Black Parrot Seaside NEW website
Great new site and very comprehensive! All you want to know about Black Parrot Seaside

"Black Parrot Seaside began in Richmond Street in Coventry where a few members taped an extremely silly version of Marc Boland's Telegram Sam called Baggy Leaf Dwarf. The original line up consisted of drums, bass, lead, keyboards and two vocalists."

"Influences - Alex Harvey, Bonzos, Edgar Broughton, Heavy Metal Kids and Monty Python. Many line up changes (see below) and at the time of the recording the band moved from Rock to Folk. but the stage act remained out of the ordinary. It featured seashanties, monologues, Marston's Bitter, Rolf Harris impersonations, and much more."

Black Parrot Seaside are still performing after 38 years according to Geoff Veasey, who contacted me.
There is already a lot of material (including some Youtube) on their website and on the Hobo A to Z of Coventry bands so i won't repeat it all here. This is the link
